WTU Retail Energy – Options for West Texas Electricity

WTU Retail Energy is the biggest electricity provider in West Texas. But did you know WTU Retail Energy is not the same as West Texas Utilities (WTU)? You have a choice of electricity provider for your west Texas electricity. WTU is not your only option.

What’s the difference between WTU Retail Energy and West Texas Utilities?

If you live in West Texas, including Abilene, Alpine, Childress, Lubbock, San Angelo, Sonora and Vernon, you may be familiar with West Texas Utilities. WTU is the utility company that historically served West Texas.

When Texas deregulated in 2001, West Texas Utilities split into two separate companies:

  • WTU Retail Energy became your power company if you didn’t choose a different electricity supplier.
  • AEP Texas North became your utility company. They’re the company that handles the poles and wires, reads your meter and responds to any power emergency.

That means you don’t have to choose WTU for your electricity service. You have options, and can save on your electricity bill if you choose a different electricity company.
