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. CPL is 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. CPL is 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. 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.

Their Payless Power SmarTricity plans offers two options — month to month or 12 month fixed price. We recommend the 12 month fixed price. With only $75 to start, you’ll be able to set up same day electricity service, and get a guaranteed price per kWh.
