CPL Retail Energy – Options for South Texas Electricity

CPL Retail Energy is the biggest electricity provider in south Texas. But did you know CPL Retail Energy is not the same as Corpus Power & Light (CPL)? You have a choice of electricity provider. They are not your only option.

What’s the difference between CPL Retail Energy and Corpus Power & Light?

If you live in south Texas, including Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Laredo and McAllen you may be familiar with Corpus Power & Light or CPL. They are the utility company that historically served South Texas.

When Texas deregulated in 2001, Corpus Power & Light split into two companies. CPL Retail Energy became your electricity supplier if you didn’t shop for a new electricity company. And your utility company, which handles the poles and wires and reads your meter, is AEP Texas Central.

So the fact is, you have a choice when it comes to electricity companies. There are many options when it comes to who provides the energy that supplies your home. And you don’t have to use CPL Retail Energy.

No Deposit / No Credit Check South Texas Electricity

If your credit score is under 600, or you don’t have a social security number of drivers license, most electricity companies will require a deposit.

Here’s the better way to get your lights on with no credit check and no deposit — prepaid electricity!

The best prepaid electricity company in South Texas is Payless Power.

Payless Power offers two prepaid no credit check electricity plan options — a 6 month or 12 month fixed price. We recommend the 12 month fixed price. With only $40 to start, you’ll be able to set up same day electricity service, and get a guaranteed fixed price per kWh.
