Call the Transmission & Distribution Utility (TDU), not the Provider
When an electricity outage happens, you should contact your TDU (such as Entergy) for the quickest service. As a customer of Entergy Texas, you do not have the power to choose like many other places in Texas. However if you do live in an area that has the ability to choose your electricity provider, you can enroll in a low-cost fixed-rate plan on our homepage. It’s important to understand the difference between the TDU and retail electrical company when an outage occurs in a deregulated area. For profiles on other TDUs in de-regulated areas of Texas, see our Texas Electric Utilities page.
Use Smart Meter Texas to Check the Impact of an Outage on your Usage
If you live in a deregulated area of Texas, check the effect that an electrical outage has on your energy usage by visiting Smart Meter Texas. If you wish to easily view your meter usage history captured by Entergy, you can quickly set up an account at Smart Meter Texas. However, you may first want to read our guide about Smart Meters to fully understand the metrics and advantages of Smart Meters. As an Entergy customer, you can read more information about advanced meters.
Compare Entergy Electricity Rates to De-regulated Electric Company Rates in Texas
As a regulated monopoly in Texas, Entergy’s rates are set by government regulatory bodies and not by free-market forces. About 15% of Texans live in regulated zones and don’t have a choice of energy providers and electricity plans.
Electric companies that market residential energy in Texas de-regulated zones, including the Houston electricity and Dallas electricity markets, offer special discount rates to Home Energy Club members due to our significant bargaining power and the site is free to use with no membership fee required. We vet each electricity plan using TrustPlan™. We also have exclusive discount promo codes for major providers. For example, view special Gexa Energy rates and plans, Pulse Power rates and plans, TriEagle Energy rates and plans, Chariot Energy solar rates and plans, Amigo Energy rates and plans, and Entrust Energy rates and plans.
What Do I Do in the Case of a Power Outage?
- Check with your surrounding neighbors to verify that the outage is not just at your home.
- View the Entergy Outage Map for a status update on the power outage.
- Electrical surges take place after power outages and they can permanently damage your electronic devices — it’s recommended to unplug all of your electronic devices.
- Find an extra power source for supplying power to medical devices if you have any.
- Keep your freezer and refrigerator closed to preserve food.
- Go to another location in case of an urgent need for cooling or heat.
The first thing you should do whenever there’s an electricity outage at your home is to disconnect all your electronic devices to avoid destruction. Then, call Entergy to determine when power will be turned on. Again, you can also visit the Entergy Outage Map for predictions as well. If necessary, it is important to move locations for better heating or cooling.
