Electricity in El Campo comes from all over Texas. The Texas electric grid is the largest independent grid in the U.S. Texas is the only state in the country with its own electric grid with little connection with the other main power grids in North America.
As a result of this all electricity used in El Campo is produced within the state.
Due to a large investment in infrastructure over last decade, the abundant wind energy generated in west Texas can be transmitted all over the state to meet demand. No other state has the amount of wind energy capacity Texas has.
