TXU Energy electric plans are often competitive to other providers but comparing is encouraged because they are often not the best Texas electric rate out there.
In reality no one provider can stay the best price, it is too competitive. A lean game of executing the business right and being effective at reaching customers is the tough part of the retail electric service business.
What Wikepedia Has to Say About TXU Energy
Regarding TXU’s recent history. Wikipedia describes their parent company and subsequent aquisitions as follows:
“In 2016, Texas Competitive Electric Holdings (TCEH), parent company of TXU Energy and Luminant, emerged from Chapter 11 (as part of the bankruptcy protection for Energy Future Holdings Corporation). TCEH was then rebranded as Vistra Energy.
Vistra acquired Dynegy in 2018. In 2019, Ambit Energy was acquired, resulting in a 32% residential market share in ERCOT, with NRG Energy as its largest competitor. It also acquired Crius Energy in 2019.” -wikepedia
