Texas Energy Providers

Texas retail electric providers (REPs)

Because of the state’s deregulated energy market, Texas consumers have a wealth of retail electric providers (REPs) to choose from. However, not all providers come with the same level of service. Texas Electric Rates works with top providers across the state to show our customers the widest selection possible while weeding out providers who are unproven or untrustworthy.

Below are the energy companies you will see in the Texas Electric Rates marketplace. We’ve vetted all of them for customer satisfaction and reputation through our rating system (out of 5 points), so you can be confident in your choice.
