Electric Providers in Austin, Texas Areas

Updated on August 28, 2017

Welcome Home

Congratulations on your new home! There are a lot of things to take care of now but first, you’ll need to set up utilities. After all, you can't unpack in the dark.

So, who do you call for electric, water, sewer, trash, cable, and internet? Not to worry, you've got choices (in most cases).

Within the City of Austin, residents will set up service through Austin Energy or City of Austin. However, if you have purchased a home outside of Travis County, it’s good to know that you may now be part of an unregulated area, which means you can choose who you want for electric service. For example, if you live in Round Rock, Hutto, Pflugerville, or Cedar Park, you can compare rates and then select an electric provider that best suits your needs.

Power to Choose

Power to Choose is a great website for comparing multiple electric providers that service in unregulated areas. Visit to learn more about your options but here are the most popular electric providers for those unregulated areas.
