About TXU Energy
For Texans of a certain age, TXU was once the only electric company. Prior to the deregulation of the Texas electricity market, people in areas such as Dallas and Fort Worth were TXU customers by default.
Today there are many more electricity providers to choose from. But TXU remains the default choice for many Texas consumers. TXU enjoys tremendous brand recognition in Texas thanks to its long company history.
