What is Texas-New Mexico Power?

Texas-New Mexico Power

The majority of the Texas energy grid has been deregulated for over 10 years now, and this means you have the choice of 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) - also known as your utility company. Texas-New Mexico Power is 1 of the 5 that service the deregulated areas of Texas.
