TexasPowerGuide.com was founded by Houston engineer Fred Anders and his family to help other families save their hard-earned time and money. After enduring the confusopoly of providers and plans for our own electric service, we decided to develop a better approach.
Finding the best power plan doesn’t require fancy computer technology. It just takes basic math applied to a standardized list of options. But for 15 years neither retailers nor regulators have fully provided those capabilities, leaving countless Texans to derive their own. Texas Power Guide consolidates that effort by compiling and publishing a database and calculator for all to leverage.
In doing so, we strive to be thorough, transparent, and unbiased. We’re the only service that publishes all our data and calculations. We’re not affiliated with or sponsored by anyone — including REPs, TDSPs, aggregators / brokers, the PUCT, or ERCOT — and we don’t sell electricity plans or ads. To protect your privacy and security we don’t ask for your personal information or account details. We charge a nominal fee to support our efforts, but not until we’ve saved you money on a new contract.
Help us help others manage their own electric plans so we can realize the true potential of our competitive market. Data and tools are key, but they only work with awareness and participation. If your neighbors are among the many that overpay for their electricity, please tell them about TPG — they’ll thank you for it!
