Choosing An Electric Company in Texas
If you’re not familiar with deregulation and how it affected the Texas energy market, things might seem confusing at first, especially if you’ve recently moved here from out of state. How do you choose an electric company? Where do you start in researching the best provider?
The local electric company is the utility – that’s the company that owns the infrastructure, including the poles and power lines that deliver electricity to your home. They are who you call if your power goes out or there’s an emergency. But in almost every city in Texas, you must choose another company to supply that energy, called a Retail Electric Provider (REP). These REPs, like Spark Energy, allow you to choose electricity plans that offer competitive prices and plans to meet your needs.
How does that work? Spark Energy buys electricity and competes in the market for the best price — a competition that ultimately drives prices down and allows us to deliver more value for your money. In Texas, switching to a different electricity provider is kind of like changing to a different long distance company. When you switch to Spark Energy, the utility will continue to deliver electricity to your home but Spark Energy will handle all the billing, including the utility’s delivery fees and the electricity you actually use.
It’s that simple – and you can pay less for electricity.
