Get to know energy choice in Odessa

The city of Odessa, in western Texas’ Permian Basin, is about an hour from the New Mexico border. An oil town, Odessa is also known for its cowboy culture and “Friday Night Lights,” the book and television show about the city’s high school football. Odessa’s population of about 120,000 residents also enjoys the power to choose their energy provider.

The choice of an energy provider can be a difficult and confusing decision. Atlas is an online energy marketplace built to put consumers first and help you build a roadmap to the best Odessa electricity rates. Let’s get started.

Your map to Odessa utilities and providers

There are two factors to electricity in Texas — electric utilities and energy providers. The utility company maintains the power lines and delivers your electricity from the provider you choose. The utility company serving the Odessa service area is Oncor Electric Delivery.

  • Customers: 10+ million
  • Areas served: 408 cities and 98 counties across the state
  • Outages: Call 888-313-4747 or report it through the company’s online outage center

With all of the electric providers to choose from in Texas, Atlas helps you chart your course to the right provider for your needs. Electricity companies in Odessa include:

How Atlas compares Odessa electric plans

Odessa electricity plans can be a challenge to understand. If you make your choice based solely on rate, you may later find another plan that offers credits and ends up being more affordable. Consider the following:

  • Odessa electric prices change often. If you’re not on a fixed-rate plan where your rate remains consistent, you could be paying a different rate each month for the same amount of electricity used. This makes it hard to predict your bill.
  • Seasonal changes can also have a major effect on your bill — you could go from paying $95 in April to $196 in August, according to 2019 averages.
  • The cheapest rate doesn’t always provide the lowest bill. Although pricing is based on kilowatt-hours (kWh), depending on your plan, you could actually pay less for using 1,000 kWh than you would for 999 kWh.

This is where Atlas comes in. Our energy plan recommendations take into account your usage for the entire year and how that will affect your bill. When you create an Atlas account, we keep working on your behalf. If we find a better option later on, we’ll reach out to let you know.

Why Atlas is different

The guiding principle at Atlas is that the customer comes first. While we work with many energy providers, our recommendations are always based on what works best for you and your particular situation. The providers we work with know this and want their names on the map.

We look at the big picture, not just the cheapest rates, to make our recommendations. We compare rates, types of plans, credits, and more. We use a custom algorithm that evaluates all these factors, so you don’t have to. The more information you give us, the better the recommendation we can give.
