Retail Electric Competition
LP&L plans to transition to competitive retail electric service soon*.
Just like comparing and shopping for cell phone or internet plans, retail electric competition means customers can shop for their own electric plan, comparing pricing, types of fuel resources, and overall contract terms. These electric providers from around the state will sell power to Lubbock residents. LP&L’s job will be to maintain the electric infrastructure we currently own that transports the electricity and safely delivers the product to customers' homes.
Please note: LP&L will not be a retail electric provider, and will not partner with any retailers or trade groups related with competition and the retail electric market. LP&L and City of Lubbock will not contact customers to assist them with the shopping process. Customers will not have the option to stay with LP&L.
*Pending state regulatory approval to move the remaining 30% of customers into the ERCOT market.
