What is electricity deregulation?
The Texas market was open for competition in 2002 giving customers the right to choose their own electricity provider. Prior to this, everything was controlled by the local utility as a monopoly. Deregulation allows providers to compete for
your business and provide the best rates and plans that fit your needs.

Power Texas is a Retail Electricity Provider (REP) licensed by the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT). This means we can provide electricity plans and options to residential and business customers in Texas through electricity deregulation.
What is a kilowatt-hour or (kWh)?
A kilowatt-hour (kWh) is a unit of measurement used for electric
energy. It means you used 1,000 watts for an hour, for example, a 60-watt light bulb would need to run for over 16 hours to use just one kilowatt of electricity. You will typically find electric rates priced by the kWh. This term is used on your
electricity agreement as well as your monthly statement.
What is an Electrical Service Identifier or (ESI ID)?
ESI stands for "electrical service identifier". An ESI ID number is unique to the physical address where you receive your electricity - it's like the social security number to your meter. In Texas, almost all of our meters are "smart meters", which
means they record your electricity usage for every 15 minute period of every day of the year.
What is the Electricity Facts Label or (EFL)?
The Electricity Facts Label (EFL) is part of our Residential Service Agreement and provides you with information on pricing, contract, fuel mix and emissions information regarding your electricity service. The
layout and content of the EFL is prescribed by the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT). This document is very important as it lists your electricity rates and any fees associated with your agreement. You should review these closely to weed
out the tricks and gimmicks that some companies use.
What is a Transmission and Distribution Service Provider or (TDSP)?
The Transmission and Distribution
Service Provider (TDSP), sometimes referred to as the Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU), is the local utility company that transmits and delivers electricity within a service area via electric poles and wires. This company is responsible
for the maintenance and repair of these poles and wires and is regulated by the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT). When you switch to New Power Texas, your TDSP remains the same, and they continue to deliver your electricity as they always
What is Renewable Energy?
Renewable Energy, sometimes referred to as "green energy", is electricity
generated by naturally sustainable fuel sources, like wind and sun. When green energy is generated, harmful emissions like carbon dioxide, mercury, nitrogen oxide, and sulfur dioxide are not released into the environment.
If I'm switching providers when I sign up with New Power Texas, when will the switch happen?
A standard switch takes place
between 1-7 business days after acceptance of your service agreement but can happen very quickly in some instances. If you select a specific switch or move-in date, your services will typically begin on the date chosen. You will receive your first
electric statement from New Power Texas soon after the next monthly meter read.
Do I have to contact my old company if I am switching electricity providers?
No. When you switch to New Power Texas, your old supplier will receive notification that you have switched away - no action is necessary on your part.
