Electric Utility Company for Lubbock

  • Written By: Rebecca Bridges

  • Lubbock Power & Light (LP&L) has been the utility for the city of Lubbock TX since 1916. In January 2024, LP&P joined the Texas deregulated electricity market. If you live in the Lubbock area, LP&L will continue to be your utility company but you must choose a retail electricity provider to provide your electricity supply.

    Shop for Lubbock Electric Providers

    With deregulation, LP&L does not sell electricity. They only deliver it and maintain the poles and wires. If you are in the LP&L delivery area, you must select a retail electricity provider (REP). 

    The best option for your electricity is a basic fixed rate plan. These simple plans give you a single rate for every kilowatt hour you use.

    You’ll have a fixed rate for electricity, and your LP&L charges are passed through as a line item on your bill with no mark-up. You can choose traditional energy or support green energy resources and go with 100% renewable energy.

    Other plan types, including tiered rates, bill credits, free nights and weekends, are more complicated. These plans give you a different rate based on your usage and usage patterns. We recommend avoiding these types of plans, at least for your first entry point into deregulation!

    Lubbock electricity rates and electricity prices in the surrounding area are very competitive.
