Which Utility Company Delivers Electricity to Copperas Cove?
Existing monopolies were split up when Texas deregulated its electricity market. They were broken up into separate companies that now play different roles within the market.
Of particular relevance to Texas electricity consumers are two types of electric company. They are the Retail Electricity Providers and the Transmission Distribution Utilities (TDUs)
Your retail electricity provider is the company you choose to provide your electricity. Their name is on your bill. Assuming your area isn’t under a regional of city coop, you are free to choose your retail electricity provider. These companies have familiar names such as TXU, Reliant, and Champion Energy.
Retail electricity providers compete in the market for residential and commercial customers. Their job is to purchase electricity from the wholesale electricity market and resell it to the end users while, evening out the price volatility of the wholesale electricity market. When they sell you a fixed duration electricity plan, they are locking in a rate for you while taking on the risk of price volitivity within the wholesale market.
The retail electricity provider does not deliver your electricity. That job belongs to the Transmission Distribution Utilities (TDUs). TDUs maintain the powerlines for a specific region of the state and are responsible for keeping the power flowing.
The utility responsible for the Copperas Cove area in Oncor. If you have a power outage, it is Oncor you should call.
What Is an Electricity Plan EFL?
The Electricity Facts Label (EFL) is the industry standard document that holds all the details about an electricity plan. In it you will find all of the fine print that make up the electricity rate that is advertised for that plan. You will find the average electricity rate you should expect to pay at 3 standard levels of monthly usage in Copperas Cove: 500kWh, 1000 kWh, and 2000 kWh hours.
Usually, the EFL will list out the TDU passthrough fees. These are standard delivery fees that everyone has to pay to have electricity delivered to their home. These are usually, though not always broken out as separate line items in the EFL.
Sometimes you will see things in the EFL that you don’t expect that could have a hug impact on the electricity rate you actually pay. For example, there may be a bill credit that takes effect once your usage exceeds 2000 kWh in a month. This has the effect of driving down the average electricity rate you would pay at 2000 kWh. On the other hand, if at the end of the month, you used only 1999 kWh your electricity bill could end up being much higher.
You will find other information on the EFL such as cancellation fees and the percentage of the plan’s electricity that is sourced from renewable energy.
Always review the EFL before deciding on an electricity plan.
