The American Electric Power company has 38,000 megawatts of generation capacity and 765 kilovolt extra-high voltage transmission lines – more than all other transmission systems in the U.S. combined.

It’s important to learn about AEP electric service and energy deregulation before you shop for an energy plan. Do you receive electricity from the American Electric Power company in Texas? If so, you live in a region with a deregulated energy market. In Texas, residents pay separately for transmission and energy supply. Your transmission bill is for your AEP electric service, but you have the freedom to shop companies for your electric supply.

Just Energy offers fixed and variable supply rates. Fixed rates are locked in for the duration of your service contract. These rates are helpful if you want a more predictable energy bill. Your bill will only differ each month if your energy consumption increases or decreases. Variable supply rates may sometimes be lower than fixed rates, but it's always possible that the rate will increase. These rates reflect the dynamic nature of the energy market; variable rates increase if supply goes down and demand goes up.

Call Just Energy to shop energy plans. All you need is your ZIP code to learn which electricity plans are available for your home or business. An agent can also answer any questions you may have about Just Energy supply rates.
