A subsidiary of AEP Texas, AEP Texas Central delivers electricity to 786,893 residential, commercial and industrial customers in southern and central Texas. Its service area includes the cities of Corpus Christi, McAllen, Harlingen, Victoria, and Laredo.
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, for whatever reason, you don't 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. You can find the rates offered by your Provider of Last Resort below. You can use these rates as a comparison tool to help you decide if you can save money by choosing another supplier. If another supplier’s price per kilowatt hour is lower than the default rate, you can save the difference per kilowatt hour by switching to that supplier. These rates include only the cost of producing the electricity, not the cost of delivering the electricity to you. The delivery costs will remain the same no matter who supplies your electricity.

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 at a minimum rate of [content_block title="AEP Central PTC" id="7639"] cents per kilowatt hour.
