Explore the Texas energy industry
Texas residents get their energy supply from retail electric providers (REPs). Since there are many REPs available, customers have the power to choose which company and supply plan is best for them. When shopping for a supply plan, consumers will come across fixed-rate supply plans and variable-rate supply plans, so it is important to understand the difference. With a fixed-rate supply plan, the rate per kWh will not change during your contract. With a variable-rate supply plan, the rate per kWh is based on market prices. If market prices increase, your rates may also increase. However, if market prices decrease, you may benefit from lower rates.
The EveryDay EveryNight Plan: Learn more
Gexa Energy offers several supply plans with different benefits. The EveryDay EveryNight Plan is an option that gives customers the same rate during daytime and nighttime hours. Customers who sign up for the American Airlines AAdvantage plan get a secured energy supply rate for two years, and they can earn mileage toward their next vacation. If you are already a customer, the Share & Save referral program lets you earn rewards for getting friends and family members to sign up for a plan with Gexa Energy.
Power your business
Businesses of all sizes need energy supply plans. Commercial energy plans can have fixed rates or variable rates, and they can be long-term or short-term, depending on the business. Renewable energy supply plans may be available for select businesses. Plans with renewable energy use solar, hydro, wind and geothermal power instead of traditional fossil fuels. Renewable energy resources naturally replenish themselves and do not emit carbon pollution, making them a better choice for our environment.
Gexa Energy supports the community
Gexa Energy and its parent company support United Way each year through personal donations and fundraising events. The annual iPledge United Way Campaign helps raise money to fund projects for the United Way. In 2013, NextEra Energy Foundation and Gexa Energy donated to the Brookwood Community, a nonprofit residence for adults with disabilities. The donation was used to update lights in the facility to LED bulbs, in order to reduce the residence’s utility bill. If you live in the Dallas community, you’ve probably been to a concert or event at Gexa Energy Pavilion, commonly known to Texans as the “Gexaplex.” The amphitheater first opened in 1988 and has 20,000 seats.
