    Lubbock Deregulation Timeline

    Here are the key important dates for deregulation in Lubbock:

    • Customer Choice Enrollment: January 5 to February 15, 2024. Consumers can select a Retail Electricity Provider (REP).
    • Default Provider Assignment: February 19 – March 1, 2024. Those that don’t choose an REP will be assigned to a Default Retail Electric Provider (DREP) at a variable market rate.
    • Ongoing Shopping. If you chose a REP, you’re all set. If you got assigned to one, you can still shop and find a fixed rate plan!
    • Provider Activation. March 4 – April 5, 2024. Your electricity account will transition from LP&L to your new REP on your meter read cycle during this period.

    Deregulation Basics – Lubbock Electricity Shopping

    Electricity deregulation separates the generation, supply and delivery of power into different companies.

    The REP you choose buys the electricity on your behalf, sends your bill for energy and delivery and provides customer service.

    No matter what electricity company you choose, LP&L still delivers the power to your home and responds in the case of an emergency. Your other City of Lubbock utilities, like water, will remain unchanged.

    The biggest benefit of deregulation is choice.

    Instead of paying a set rate from the local utility company, you can choose from a variety of plan types and companies. Competition between these electricity providers helps keep prices down.

    You can read more on Deregulation 101 in our article on that topic.

    Based on 20+ years of experience in electricity rates and plans, we recommend a basic fixed rate electricity plan. You’ll pay the same rate per kWh for all your electricity. Plan gimmicks like bill credits, tiered rates and free electricity typically don’t save you money.

    Frequently Asked Questions about Lubbock Electricity Deregulation

    When can I choose my electricity provider in Lubbock?

    Electricity choice in Lubbock will open January 5, 2024 and run through February 15, 2024. If you do not choose an electricity provider, you will be assigned to a Default Retail Electricity Provider at a market variable rate. If that happens to you? You can still shop and get a better price! Your electricity transitions to your new provider on your meter read date between March 4 and April 4, 2024.

    Can I opt-out of electricity deregulation in Lubbock?

    No. All electric meters in LP&L have transitioned to the competitive market. If you fail to choose an electricity supplier during the enrollment period, you will be assigned to the Default Retail Electricity Provider (DREP). DREP rates are typically the highest in the market. It’s to your benefit to shop and choose a supplier.

    Why did Lubbock deregulate electricity?

    For years, Lubbock Power & Light operated as a city owned utility company under the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) electrical grid. Lubbock operated their own power plant and also purchased power from the SPP grid.

    But population growth and increasing demand led LP&L to a decision point. They would either have to invest in a new power plant, costing local taxpayers millions of dollars. Or they could join the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) the grid operator that runs the Texas grid.

    By joining ERCOT, they have access to a larger electricity market and more competitive pricing.

    How do I find the cheapest electricity plan in Lubbock?

    Once electric choice is open, you can find the cheapest electricity plan for your Lubbock home or business by shopping online. We recommend shopping only no gimmicks fixed rate electricity plans. We call these Basic Electricity.

    Plans that have tiered rates, bill credits and flat bill amounts look attractive. But the fine print behind them may leave you paying more than you expected.

    To find the cheapest electricity rates, always shop based on your monthly electricity usage. Sites like ElectricityPlans.com let you enter your zip code and usage to compare rates.

    Why are there three rates shown for Lubbock electricity plans?

    When shopping for Lubbock electricity plans, you will see rates advertised based on 500, 1000 or 2000 kWh monthly usage. This is a requirement by the Public Utility Commission of Texas.

    Some plans have tiered rates, bill credits or fixed monthly charges that can make a difference in your effective rate. The three rates in the Electricity Facts Label are designed to highlight this.

    ElectricityPlans lets you shop based on your average monthly usage to find the best plan for your home. You’ll see an estimate of your actual bill including delivery.
