Provider of Last Resort

In Texas, utility companies are no longer in the business of purchasing electricity for their customers. Instead, Texas residents and business must purchase their electricity from a certified Retail Electric Provider (REP).

If you do not sign up with a retail electric provider, a Provider of Last Resort (POLR) will be chosen for you by the Texas Public Utilities Commission to supply electricity to your home or business. If possible, you should avoid POLR electric service because it tends to more expensive relative to other options with competitive suppliers. Residential customers in the AEP Texas Central service area will receive POLR service from CPL Retail Energy.

Enter your ZIP code above to see REP plans available in your area and see if you can secure a cheaper rate than your POLR offers.
