Searching for AEP Electricity Information?

AEP electricity

The vast majority of the Texas energy grid has been deregulated for over 10 years now, and this means you can choose which retail electric provider will provide the electricity for your home or business. However, deregulation does not mean that you choose what company actually transmits and delivers that electricity to you. This company is called a Transmission and Delivery Service Provider (TDSP), and AEP Electricity represents 2 of the 5 that service the deregulated areas of Texas - AEP North and AEP Central.
