Absolutely. Our experts have a lot of experience analyzing electricity bills and contracts and will give you an honest answer about what you could save with electricity powered by Amos Electric. There’s no charge or commitment required for looking at your bill, just give us a call to get started.

We’ve been serving Central Texas and the surrounding areas since 1948.  We are on our third generation of family ownership.  If you’d like an honest, local expert to help you navigate the muddy waters of deregulation, the ability to come into our showroom and talk to a person face to face, ask questions about your bill, or make a payment, or to pick up the phone and call a local company and not a call center overseas, then we are who you need.

In many cases, we can begin serving your home the same day.  If you sign up later in the afternoon or evening, it could be the following day.

You should contact your local TDSP (Transmission and Distribution Service Provider or “wires” company).  The contact numbers are listed on your bill.  They are also here for your reference:

TDSP Territory Phone Number
CenterPoint Energy Houston & Surrounding Areas 1-800-332-7143
Oncor Electric Delivery North & West Texas 1-888-313-4747
Texas New Mexico Power Houston Area, Dallas Area, & West Texas 1-888-866-7456
American Electric Power South & West Texas 1-866-223-8508

We do run a soft credit check.  We will let you know if there is a refundable deposit required.  Deposits, if required, are refunded through a bill credit after electricity bills are paid in full for 12 consecutive months with no late payments.  We also offer other low or no deposit/no credit check plans to serve all customers.

We offer residential services in all deregulated parts of Texas except Sharyland Utilities.

Deregulation is the opening of a market to competition in a previously regulated industry. Texas Senate Bill 7, on January 1, 2002, created a deregulated electricity industry in Texas, allowing many consumers the opportunity to buy electricity from any Retail Electricity Provider (REP) they choose. Many consumers no longer have only one option for electricity. They can shop around for the best plan and, in many cases, lower their electric bill. Not all of Texas was deregulated. Certain municipalities still have an entity that continues to provide their electric service, but approximately 75% of Texas is deregulated.

The main change occurred when the large companies that previously had a monopoly on the electricity business were forced to split divisions into their specialties. They divided into three parts — Generation (making the electricity), Transmission and Distribution “TDSP” (transporting the electricity from the generator to the home or business) and Retail (buying wholesale electricity and selling and billing individual customers). Other companies were created at this time to also compete in the Retail portion of the electricity business as Retail Electric Providers (REPs). You now get to choose a REP who buys bulk electricity and sells to you — while the electricity is still delivered to you as reliably as ever, over the same wires you have always had.
