Get to know energy choice in Round Rock

The city of Round Rock, Texas is part of the Greater Austin Metropolitan Area. The city is a place where locals can experience a wide range of outdoor activities from hiking trails and creeks to sports fields and playgrounds. The area is known for the Chisholm Trail, which was used to drive cattle from Texas to Kansas after the Civil War. Round Rock is a growing city of around 130,000 residents, in part because it became the home for Dell’s headquarters in 1994.

Round Rock residents benefit from a deregulated electricity market, where they can choose their electric provider from many options. Atlas is your one-stop roadmap to the best energy plan for you. With a little information, we’ll calculate your bill under many scenarios to make sure you find the right fit.

Your map to Round Rock utilities and providers

A utility provider brings electricity and gas to your home and your neighbors’ homes. They work to maintain power lines and restore service after power outages. Though residents of Texas have the power to choose a supply plan from a retail electric provider (REP), they cannot choose their electric utility company. Round Rock is within the Oncor Electric Delivery service area.

  • Customers: 10+ million
  • Areas served: 48 cities and 98 counties across the state
  • Outages: Call 888-313-4747 or go to the outage center

Within Round Rock, there are many REPs to choose from. Atlas will help you navigate these REPs to find the best option for you. Round Rock electricity providers include:

How Atlas compares Round Rock electric plans

While it’s great that Texas has the power to choose, navigating the long list of retail electricity providers in the state can be a confusing task. Atlas was built to help users avoid the common traps that can come with choosing your energy plan, including these considerations:

  • Electricity prices change every day. Some consumer energy plans are protected from these changes and some are not. That can be very risky if you are a budget-minded person, especially when the average Texan used 1,664 kWh in August 2019.
  • It’s not uncommon to have higher energy bills in the summertime in Texas, but the fluctuation can still be jarring. In 2019, average Texas electricity bills hit a low of $95 in April and a high of $196 in August.
  • Some plans will charge you more for using 999 kilowatt hours (kWh) than for using 1,000 kWh. That’s an easy way to get charged more money when you’re trying to use less electricity.

This is why Atlas exists. We’re here to help you avoid these pitfalls by testing your usage against many scenarios before you sign up for a plan. With your Atlas account, we can track your plan and let you know if we find a better option.
