To generate electricity, Texas relies on several different types of power. Most electricity in Texas comes from power plants that burn either natural gas or coal. Coal was once the dominant source of power, but it is waning.
Texas is a leader in renewable energy. The wind energy output of Texas dwarfs that of other states. Texas has invested billions of dollars in infrastructure to move electricity created by wind turbines in west Texas across the state to meet demand for power.
Solar electricity still comprises only a tiny fraction of the power consumed in Texas but has begun rapidly growing due to cost reductions and efficiency improvements in photovoltaic panels.
The future will see more growth in renewable energy sources and a continued decline in coal as a source of electricity for Texas.

New Electricity Service – What Do I Need?
You have the option of enrolling online or over the phone. Either way, there is some information you might want to have readily available to make your sign-up process go faster.
You will need to have the full and correct service address. If the bills will be sent to another address, you will need to provide that one as well. For credit purposes, providers may also ask for your current or previous address.
You will be asked to provide either a social security number or a driver’s license number (unless you are enrolling in a prepaid electricity plan). The provider will use this information to perform a “soft” credit check. This won’t hurt your credit score, but it will be used by the company to determine whether a deposit is required.
If a plan offers autopay, you may be asked to provide payment information when you enroll in the plan. Autopay is an optional feature for many plans and is required for some plans in order to get a cheaper rate.
