Get to know energy choice in Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi, colloquially called Corpus and nicknamed “Sparkling City by the Sea,” is a coastal Texas city some 130 miles southeast of San Antonio. With a population of over 325,000, it is the eighth most-populous Texas city and boasts the fifth largest port in the U.S. The name Corpus Christi means "Body of Christ" in Latin and was given to the area in 1519 by Spanish explorer Alonso Alvarez de Pineda when he discovered the bay on the feast day of Corpus Christi.

Residents of Corpus Christi have the power to choose since energy deregulation arrived in Texas. While that choice can mean saving on your electric bills, it can also be complex. That’s where Atlas comes in, with a personalized roadmap to the best Corpus Christi electricity rate for you at no charge.

Your map to Corpus Christi utilities and providers

In Texas, deregulation allows consumers to choose their providers, but electric utilities are assigned by area. The utility delivers energy and maintains power lines. In Corpus Christi the electric utility company is AEP Texas.

  • Customers: 1+ million
  • Areas served: Central and West Texas from Abilene to Corpus Christi
  • Outages: Report an outage online or call 1-877-373-4858

Corpus Christi residents must use AEP as their utility, but are free to choose their energy provider thanks to energy deregulation. Corpus Christi electric prices can vary greatly from one provider to the next, with many factors that make choosing difficult. Atlas takes all this into account to give you the best possible recommendation. Electricity providers in Corpus Christi include:

How Atlas compares Corpus Christi electric plans

The power to choose an electric provider hasn't come without some pitfalls. One of those is how complicated Texas energy plans have become. Below are a few common challenges:

  • In Texas the price of electricity changes daily. While you can get protection from these changes with some plans, others change your rate along with the market. Is that a chance you want to take when the average Texas household used 1,664 kilowatt-hours (kWh) in August 2019?
  • Texas summers can make electricity bills skyrocket. In August 2019 the average Texas electricity bill was $196, but in April of 2019 the average bill was less than half that amount.
  • Choose your plan wisely, otherwise you might pay more for 999 kWh than you do for 1,000 kWh.

Energy deregulation has helped introduce competition and keep rates low, but the constantly changing price of electricity and complicated energy plans have kept some Texans from getting their best energy rates. Atlas can help navigate the confusion because we factor all these pitfalls into the math – and make sure you’re avoiding them.

How Atlas is different

Atlas is a different kind of energy marketplace.
