How Texas’ Best Light Companies were Chosen

The biggest complaint of Texas light company customers is that their energy plan provided a bill surprise, so we vet each plan to help you avoid gimmick plans which cause bombshell bills. The Texas light companies included in our list that offer trustworthy plans were judged based on the following:

  • trustworthiness and transparency
  • customer service and complaint resolution
  • affordable pricing (considering rates and value based on level of service)
  • overall customer satisfaction

Light companies enroll you in residential Texas electricity plans and bill you, while transmission and distribution utilities (TDUs) such as Centerpoint and Houston, and Oncor in Dallas, transmit the energy to your home.

Our Texas Electricity Guides Help you Choose the Best Light Company and Plan

Use our handy guides to help choose the best light company and energy plan for your home. It’s especially important to learn how to read the Electricity Fact Label (EFL), and use the EFL  in combination with your home’s usage data, which you’ll find with the help of our Texas Smart Meter Guide.

You’ll also want to learn how to find the cheapest electricity rates in Texas by zip code, as well as get discount energy rates with promo codes and check out reviews for Texas light companies. If you’re interested in clean energy to combat climate change, find out how much CO2 is emitted by regular fossil-sourced plans, and then explore 100% renewable energy plans.
