Your power? Your choice.

Texas is one of the states where residents in certain areas can choose the Texas retail electric provider they want. Before the electricity marketplace was opened up by the Public Utility Commission of Texas, residents had one energy option: they had to work with the utility that served their area. That utility provided the electricity supply, did the billing and handled any power outages.

Thanks to the open marketplace, many Texans can now choose among Texas retail electricity providers to find the best one for their household energy needs and budget. Here's how it works: You find the Texas retail electric provider whose rate works best for you. The utility continues to deliver the electricity and handle any potential power outages that might occur.

Choosing your Texas retail electricity provider doesn't have to be complicated. Here's how StarTex Power can help.

Why Where You Live Matters for Your Energy Budget

If there's one trait that defines the big state of Texas, it's the heat. The sun is strong and hot for many months of the year. Air conditioning is a fact of life. On the hottest summer days, the thermometer regularly tips into the triple-digit range.

As a state that is 268,597 square miles, Texas is larger than many smaller countries. So while people think of Texas as a place with one general climate — hot and sunny — its six regions in fact all have their weather quirks. Yes, the temperatures in Texas are certainly warmer overall, but a geography that includes deserts and pine forests is not without its more wintry moments. With evenings dropping down into the 40s in some areas, you'll need more than a sweater to stay cozy in your home.

Planning for Texas weather is a prime focus for many Texans as they contemplate managing their electricity bill. Knowing your local weather pattern can help you better plan your energy budget needs, no matter where you live in Texas. We can help you eliminate end-of-the-month bill surprises by offering an electricity plan that makes the most sense for your household.
