The Seven Best Electricity Providers in Texas
Choosing an electricity provider can be overwhelming and difficult. Wouldn't it be helpful if they were ranked on customer satisfaction?
The Public Utility Commission (PUC) of Texas has done just that with its retail electric provider complaint scorecard. This scorecard shows which electricity providers in the state of Texas have the best ratings according to their customers. This is valuable information for consumers and helps homeowners know which providers are reliable and trustworthy.
Here are the electricity providers with the lowest complaint rating, according to the Texas PUC:
Nueces Electric Cooperative
Nueces Electric Cooperative (NEC) was founded in 1938, and the company currently serves over 19,000 electric meters for consumers in eight South Texas counties.
