Choose TXU Energy for simple, straightforward savings on electricity. View Plans


Not all electric companies in Texas are created equally. That’s why it’s important to compare  TXU Energy to Direct Energy or any other provider, so you know you’re making the right decision. As you begin to search for a provider and just the right plan, here are some important questions you should ask yourself:

  • Which provider do most Texans choose? Millions of Texans trust TXU Energy for the electricity that powers their homes and businesses, making us the #1 choice for electricity in Texas. Direct Energy can’t make that claim regarding their Texas energy services.

  • Are the plans straightforward with no hidden fees? TXU Energy offers price- protected plans with rates guaranteed not to increase due to rising power generation costs. Unlike Direct Energy, we choose not to offer “variable rate” plans that can change without any warning. The pricing document for their Direct Energy Liberty Plan says, “Except for price changes allowed by law or regulatory action, this price is the price that will be applied during your first billing cycle; this price may increase by no more than 30 percent from month-to-month.”* That can be a risky plan for consumers, and that’s why we don’t sell variable rate plans.

  • Can I earn any loyalty rewards? Find out if there are any Direct Energy Texas programs that offer you cash back for the electricity you use. TXU Energy does. We offer a cash back loyalty reward on your annual electricity purchases. That’s like getting paid to do something you already do every day.

Once you've made the comparison, we're sure you'll discover why more Texans have chosen TXU Energy than any other electricity provider. See our electricity plans and rates.
