If you’re a Texas residential energy customer, you may be able to enroll in one of these programs. Energy saving programs can help customers reduce their energy bills, conserve energy for the grid, and help maintain stable energy distribution. Similar programs exist in various parts of the country, including California and Pennsylvania.
REPs will likely use these conservation measures throughout the Summer. August is usually a month with high energy demand in Texas because temperatures are at their hottest.
REPs will drive participation and focus on these programs as energy needs evolve.
You may also find an increase in incentives for renewable energy sources, such as solar energy, to support energy conservation.
Check your electricity plan’s contract or smart thermostat settings to determine whether you opted into energy savings programs. If you find out you’re enrolled in an energy-saving program and want to opt out, contact your energy provider.
If you want to switch to a provider without an energy savings program, make sure to read the Electricity Facts Label (EFL) to be aware of any early termination fees. Enter your ZIP code at Chooseenergy.com to find the best electricity rates in your area.
