- Energy deregulation: The act of separating generation, transmission, distribution and sales processes and allowing several supply companies to compete for customers.
- Retail electric provider (REP): REPs are the companies that compete with one another in deregulated areas to sell energy rates to residential and commercial customers. They are responsible for the supply of your energy, while the local utility oversees the delivery.
- Transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP): TDSPs own or operate the equipment that transmit and distribute electricity in Texas. LP&L will be the TDSP for Lubbock, and will take care of your poles and power lines. This is also the company you should call in case of a power outage.
