Service Areas:

Committed to seeing “South Texas communities thrive,” CPL Retail Energy wants you to think of it not only as your neighborhood energy provider but also as an actively engaged member of your community. To that end, the company prides itself on delivering reliable, affordable, and people-centered energy service. Along with Bounce Energy, First Choice Power, and WTU Retail Energy, CPL Retail Energy Services operates under the Direct Energy umbrella.

CPL offers a number of different pricing options that can fit any budget. These include:

  • Month-to-month plans: no contract required.
  • Fixed-rate plans: either 12 or 24 months.
  • Free power Saturdays: pay a slightly higher fixed rate for 24 months in exchange for free energy on Saturday.
  • Pre-paid plans: buy electricity as you need it, paying as you go.

CPL is also making moves into the renewable energy market, and recently signed an agreement to purchase renewable energy credits from wind farms in Texas. These purchases will power over 150,000 homes and prevent the release of over 2.6 billion pounds of carbon dioxide.

In line with its commitment to community, the company also supports a number of community non-profits and philanthropic organizations including the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Habitat for Humanity, and the Neighbor-to-Neighbor program, which provides energy assistance to families experiencing financial distress.

CPL Retail is part of the Direct Energy family, which is one of the largest energy suppliers in the country, providing electricity and natural gas to over 6 million homes and businesses.
