As of January 1, 2002, most customers in Texas have been able to choose their electric supplier. The law that made this choice possible generally separates the utility business into three parts generation, delivery, and customer service and deregulates some of it. This change gives Texas customers more options for their electric service.

Texas-New Mexico Power Company will continue to be the company that delivers the power you choose over its poles and wires. This function will remain regulated to help ensure reliability of service.

Existing utilities including Texas-New Mexico Power Company have formed affiliated companies that will provide the competitive part of your energy service. TNMP's affiliate is First Choice Power Company. Customers can choose to stay with the affiliated supplier, or they can contract with a new supplier.
