What You Need to Know About TXU Energy

For many people in Texas, TXU is synonymous with electric company.  In parts of the state including Dallas and Fort Worth, it was the only choice for electricity prior to the deregulation of the Texas electricity market.

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.

 

Power To Choose

Deregulation split the TXU electricity provider from the utility (Oncor) responsible for maintaining power lines and delivering electricity.  Now Oncor delivers electricity for North Texas consumers regardless of who they choose as their electricity provider.

This means that despite the powerful brand recognition TXU enjoys, consumers can choose any electricity provider they want.  Vaultelectricity.com has helped over 1,000,000 Texas consumers shop for electricity since 2009.  Now you can compare TXU electricity rates to other providers and choose the plan that works best for you.
