In 2002, the Texas Senate passed a bill to create the Electric Utility Restructuring Legislative Oversight Committee, which introduced Texas to a competitive energy marketplace. This made Texas one of the 30 energy choice states in the country, allowing consumers to choose their electric provider.
Utilities deliver electricity to your home. In Texas, this means your utility — which many customers refer to as light and power companies — owns the power lines, which deliver energy to you to serve your home or business. Retail energy providers, like Constellation, allow customers to set their rate and contract term. As your energy provider in Texas, you can choose customized plans and competitive electric rates.

During a hot summer day in Texas, the last thing you need is your A/C being on the fritz. With an A/C protection plan as part of your residential Texas energy plan, Houston and Dallas residents can rest assured that if an unexpected A/C breakdown happens, a certified, local technician will be sent to your home to repair your equipment — all at no cost to you.
