What Is a Utility Company?

People tend to use the terms utility company and electricity company interchangeably, but they are actually different.

That being said, though, there is a fine line between what a utility company and an electricity company do in the eyes of consumers.

Ultimately, a utility company is a company that provides electricity (or gas) to a home. It is also the company that maintains and repairs the equipment that delivers the electricity to homes — such as poles and lines.

Utility Company vs. REP

Utility companies and electricity companies are common terms. After all, it’s how we get electricity and gas into our homes, right?

Then, there’s Texas.

Texas is a deregulated state when it comes to electricity. This means the government doesn’t have as much control over electric utilities as it does in regulated states.

Deregulation in Texas allowed individual companies to sell electricity directly to consumers. Consumers get to choose which electricity company they buy electricity from.

Deregulation caused those 160+ Retail Electric Companies (REPs – aka electricity companies) we talked about earlier to pop up across the state. Each of these REPs competes to sell electricity to consumers.

Not all cities in Texas have deregulated electricity. For example, San Antonio is still a regulated city. On the surface, electricity companies and utility companies are the same to consumers. When you pull back the curtain, what goes on behind the scenes is where the differences emerge.

How are they similar?

Utility companies and electricity companies do have a similarity. On the surface, both are responsible for providing electricity to consumers.

The roles utility companies and electricity companies play, however, are very different.

How are they different?

In Texas, an electric company buys the wholesale rights to electricity (buying from the companies responsible for generating electricity). An electric company then turns around and sells this electricity directly to consumers.

The electricity company sends your bill and provides customer service. You make your bill payment directly to the electricity company.

A utility company is responsible for delivering the electricity.

While electric companies are deregulated, utility companies are still regulated by the Public Utility Commission of Texas.

Power Wizard is not a REP, an electricity company or an electric utility company. Power Wizard is an unbiased third party that uses its technology and algorithm to find the best electricity rate for Texas consumers.

Types of Utility Companies in Texas

Three types of utility companies exist in Texas:

In Texas, the three types of utility companies deliver electricity to consumer

What is an electric utility company?

An electric utility company is the company that owns the poles and power lines that deliver electricity to consumers. If you experience a power outage in your area, the electric utility company is the one you call.

They’re the ones that come out to fix the lines to get the power up and running again. Before Texas was deregulated, everyone was required to buy electricity from their local utility company.

The utility company was responsible for the supply of electricity and delivery of the electricity. Deregulation separated the supply of electricity and the delivery of electricity.

What is a gas utility company?

A gas utility company is the same as an electric utility company. The difference is that instead of delivering electricity to consumers, the utility company delivers gas.

How Many Utility Companies Are There in Texas:

Five investor-owned utility companies exist in Texas. Seventy-five cooperatives exist in Texas with over 3 million members. The number of municipal utility companies is unknown.

Can a Utility Company Come on my Property?

utility company

If you have a utility pole or utility lines on your property then the utility company owns these poles and lines. This is true of electric and gas utility companies.

The technical term is an easement. It means that the property owner retains the title to the property but the utility company has the right to go onto the property to maintain or repair their property, which is the poles and lines. ### Reasons Why A Utility Company Would Go On Your Property:

A utility company does not have carte blanche, however, to traipse all over your property any time they feel like it. They have to have a specific purpose for going onto your property. They only have the right to do maintenance and repair work on the poles and wires and equipment they own that is on your land.

An easement also gives the utility company the right to go onto your land to:
