AEP Texas North delivers energy to over 185,960 homes and businesses in Abilene, San Angelo, and Vernon. AEP Texas North electricity rates Texas homes and businesses must purchase their energy from a certified "Retail Electric Provider" (REP). If you don't, or if your provider goes out of business, you will receive service from a Provider of Last Resort (POLR) designated by the Public Utility Commission of Texas. POLR service tends to be more expensive than purchasing energy from a retail electric provider.
You can compare the POLR rates with rates offered by a retail electric provider. If another provider’s price per kilowatt hour is lower than the POLR rate, you can save money on your monthly bill. These rates include only the cost of producing the electricity. There are additional costs for the delivery of the electricity to your home or business.
