Who is The Best Energy Provider in Texas?

Thanks to its deregulated energy market, Texas has hundreds of electric companies, and dozens of top, trusted energy providers.

If you’re looking for the best power company, check out our picks of the top light companies in 2024.

However, it’s also important to remember that Retail Electricity Providers (REPs) are marketing companies that buy kWhs and resell them to their customers.

They don’t repair power outages and can’t get your electricity turned back on any faster than their competitors. The Transmission & Distribution Utility (TDU) is responsible for repairing outages. Learn more about REPs and TDUs.

There are several factors to think about when choosing your electric company:

The provider’s reputation:

We know everyone wants to find the cheapest energy plans. But before considering price, make sure the REP is reliable and trustworthy before enrolling.

Non-trustworthy providers may advertise a low rate, but it’s likely to be a gimmick rate that will cost you more than expected and cause monster billing headaches.

It’s not a guarantee, but consider companies that have been in business for at least 10 years in Texas. This demonstrates that they have survived regulatory scrutiny for many years and are more likely to be financially stable.

Professional third party reviews are also a good resource. Consider Better Business Bureau ratings and J. D. Power rankings.

Customer reviews can be a good source as well. That said, remember that most customers only post reviews after a bad experience. Also, some companies “game” review websites by posting reviews in their favor.

The energy rate offered:

Your rate can vary by location, and rates are zip code specific. That’s why we recommend looking for electric companies in your area.

Using the state-mandated Electricity Facts Label (EFL) lets you compare plans’ rates on an apples-to-apples basis. It also provides critical info, including the term length and rate type.

The ability to lock in a low rate for multiple years can also be important, and most REPs offer long-term plans.

It’s always critical to watch out for gimmicky rates and unfair pricing that some REPs offer.

When you’re reviewing the EFL for any plan, pay attention to the pricing structure. If it’s complicated and has a long list of conditions, your actual rate may be unpredictable, causing a shocking billing surprise.

Choosing a REP and a plan with simple pricing is the easiest way to ensure savings on your monthly bill and cut the likelihood of surprises.

Electric companies near you with trustworthy rates:

One of the best REPs for straight-forward rates is TriEagle Energy. They have been in business over 20 years and specialize in simple plans that help customers avoid billing surprises. You can use TriEagle’s promo code BRIGHT to receive a rate that’s lower than the regular rates shown on their website.

It’s important to note that there are legitimate plans with very low rates that are more complex, and are based on monthly energy usage ranges.

If you take the time to make sure the plan fits your home’s usage pattern, you may save money. Their rates can be up to 20% less than the average for the same term length because the plans are customized for specific usage patterns.

One provider offering these low rates is Gexa Energy, a well established, reputable brand that offers 100% green energy. You can use Gexa’s promo code GexaTX to gain access to their discount plans.

The energy provider’s operational standards:

Some REPs put real effort into their customer service, which can make a big difference in your experience with their enrollment, renewals and billing.

The operations behind the scenes can also affect your satisfaction by giving you consistently low rates, communicating useful information about your energy usage to help you reduce your bill, and offering bonuses for your home like smart thermostats.

Some provides with the best customer support include:

On Home Energy Club, our cost calculator widget helps you to choose an energy plan by performing detailed calculations so you can quickly compare estimated plan costs based on your historic usage data and publicly-available data. Your actual future bill amounts will depend on your future energy usage, which cannot be precisely determined, so the accuracy of plan cost data cannot be guaranteed. You should always read the details of an energy plan’s Electricity Facts Label (EFL) to decide if it’s a fit for your home.

By using the widget, you are certifying that you are the person whose name you have entered into the website and have authorization to access usage data for the address you entered.
