Utility companies in Texas
There are four major electricity and natural gas utility companies that service the state of Texas.
While providers generate energy, utility companies are responsible for distributing that energy.
This means that they are tasked with installing and maintaining infrastructure used to deliver electricity and natural gas into your home.
AEP Texas North/Central
Ameren Illinois is a subsidiary of Ameren Corporation.
It delivers electricity to 1.2 million customers and natural
gas to over 800,000 customers throughout the state of Illinois.
CenterPoint Energy is a Houston-based electric and natural gas delivery company
that services around 2.2 million customers in the Houston area. It also services
the states of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Ohio, Mississippi, Minnesota, Louisiana and Indiana.
Oncor is the largest transmission and distribution electric utility in the state of Texas.
It delivers electricity to over 10 million citizens in 420 cities and 120 counties throughout the Lone Star state.
Texas-New Mexico Power Company (TNMP) is an electric distribution company that delivers electricity
to over 255,000 homes and businesses in North-Central, Gulf Coast and West Texas. While the company used to deliver
electricity to New Mexico, as of 2006, it serves only the state of Texas.
Because Texas is the only state that is fully deregulated for electricity, homeowners have the power to choose their electricity provider
- and they have more choices than the day is long.
While 30% of the state is still vertically integrated - meaning the generation,
transmission and retail sectors are still connected - the remaining 70% of the state
is required to opt into their default electric provider or choose a competitive Retail Electric Provider (REP).
The Texas residential electricity market became deregulated following the approval of Texas Senate Bill 7 on January 1st, 2002.
With this bill also came the Electric Utility Restructuring Legislative Oversight Committee, which was designed to aid in the integration of the new law.
The implementation of deregulation was then staggered over the following few years.
Since 2002, around 40% of homeowners and other residential consumers in deregulated communities have switched to a competitive REP.
Natural gas, however, remains deregulated for commercial and industrial energy customers only.
