Brownsville energy rates are determined by the specific electricity provider that a consumer chooses. Although all electric energy comes from the same utility company, the Texas electric system incorporates more than just one player. First, power plants generate power, which is transmitted to a utility company. Utility companies in Brownsville then transmit the power to companies who are considered providers (sometimes called retail electric providers) who then allow power to be distributed to individual customers and provide service.
Providers include a variety of companies that can provide the consumer with residential, industrial or commercial services. The Brownsville Public Utilities Board governs the utilities of most of the electricity (and gas), and there is a host of available energy providers in Brownsville. Some of the popular providers include 4Change Energy, TriEagle Energy and Reliant Energy. Enter your zip code above to find out which of these providers is right for you.
