What is the difference between a Utility and an Energy Provider?

Utilities are in charge of the operation and maintenance of the energy grid. They care for power lines and other hardware that delivers power to your home or business. The major utilities serving the state of Texas include Oncor and Centerpoint Energy.

Texas Electricity Providers

Retail Electric Providers buy energy on the wholesale market (generators). They then sell it to consumers (you). In Texas there are several dozen electricity providers. Popular name brands include TXU Energy, Reliant Energy, and Cirro Energy.

In most areas of Texas, consumers pay their electric bill to their Retail Electric Provider.

ERCOT and The Texas Electric Grid

ERCOT manages the flow of power to 26 million Texas residents, 8 million locations and 90% of the Texas grid. It is a nonprofit corporation governed by a board of directors. The Public Utility Commission of Texas and the Texas Legislature oversee its operation. ERCOT members encompass many stakeholders including:

  • Consumers
  • Cooperatives
  • Generators
  • Power marketers
  • Retail electric providers
  • Investor-owned electric utilities
  • Transmission and distribution providers
  • Municipal electric utilities

Texas Energy Plans

There are several types of energy plans. You have probably seen plans talking about free nights and weekends or other promos. While these plans may seem intriguing, they are almost stacked in the suppliers favor.

In most cases there are two types of plans: fixed-rate and variable-rate. Each type of plan has its respective pros and cons.

As a consumer, it’s important to understand the two types of plans before signing up for an electricity plan.

Fixed-Rate Plans

Fixed-rate plans will have a set price for the term of the contract. Regardless of weather, natural events, or market volatility, your rate will not change. In most cases, fixed-rate plans have a term length of 6, 12, 24, or 36 months. We recommend fixed-rate plans for most customers.

Variable-Rate Plans

Variable-rate plan rates may change on a monthly basis based on market factors. Variable-rate plans offer more flexibility but also present more volatility in pricing which may impact your monthly electricity bill. In most cases, we do not recommend variable-rate plans.
