Energy Assistance in Texas
We're here to help.
And so are local assistance agencies.
Wow! It was a record hot summer in Texas this year.
We get it, you may need some help with your bills.
You’re not alone!
Here’s how we, and others, can help.
Deferred Payment Plan (DPP)
We’re committed to helping you out. We pre-approve all our customers for a Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) without any fees, interest or credit checks (up to $10 initially). This way, if your account balance ever goes negative and you need a little help paying that balance, we have you covered. Learn More >
Local assistance agencies are available to help you in partnership with the Comprehensive Energy Assistance Program (CEAP), a federal program designed to aid eligible low-income customers with their electricity bills in Texas.
Here’s how you can check your eligibility
- Find the local assistance agency in your county from the list below
- Call 2-1-1 on your mobile phone, and ask to connect to an energy assistance agency in your community
- Call 877.541.7905 (8am – 5pm, M-F) to connect to the CEAP service provider in your county
Texas DHCA (TDHCA)
For more information about this energy assistance program and other payment assistance programs that may be available to you in Texas, please visit the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs website (TDHCA). This may not be all that helpful as the Texas DHCA does not provide services directly to individuals. See the list below for agencies in your county that may be able to help you directly.
