There are 5 main TDUs (Transmission Distribution Utility) in Texas. They control the poles and wires used to get electricity to your home and are responsible for all associated maintenance. This includes outages happening due to line damage. They are also responsible for the meter at your house that measures your consumption. A list of TDUs is below:
  1. CenterPoint (CNP)
  2. Oncor (ONC)
  3. Texas New Mexico Power (TNMP)
  4. AEP North (AEPN)
  5. AEP Central (AEPC)
Your TDU company charges a fee for maintaining the poles and wires that transport the electricity to your home. We pass that charge directly through to you on the bill with no mark up. The PUC (Public Utility Commission) has approved the charge and the formula used to derive the charge. You are only charged for your usage. The charge includes a flat monthly fee plus an amount multiplied by your kWh.
