Our state’s military population, which includes active duty and reserve troops, veterans, retirees and civilians, is large and widespread. Just like non-military civilians, they too must navigate the various utility markets, and despite the size of this population, its members are often underserved in Texas utility matters.

To help solve that problem, OPUC partners with Texas military installations across the state, as well as with other governmental entities and service organizations whose missions involve providing education and assistance to military personnel and their families.

Because of the transitory nature of their service, many in Texas’ military communities have never encountered a competitive electric market; therefore, they may be unaware of the benefits of the market. This makes them potentially more susceptible to misinformation. This web page is designed to provide information relevant to a service member’s area, as well as tips and guides for shopping the market in that area, and information on how to handle situations that may be unique to service members, such as deployment or permanent change of station.

Agency resource materials provide information to assist in shopping the electric market, locating local and statewide utility assistance, and employing energy efficiency and conservation measures around their homes.
