Utility Companies: When Building a New Home in Alpine & for Regulated Zones

There are multiple Transmission & Distribution Utility companies in this area, so the first step in setting up electricity service for your brand new home (and to see if your location is regulated or not) is to find out which utility company serves the exact area. Start by calling AEP Texas North's customer service number listed below to see if they provide service to your new location. If they don't, try the next listed company until you find the one that services your home location. Just as a reminder, you do not need to contact the utility company if it´s known that the location is deregulated and your new home already has electricity set up.

  • AEP Texas North's customer service: 877-373-4858
  • Southwest Texas Electric Coop, Inc.'s customer service: 325-853-2544
  • Rio Grande Electric Coop, Inc.'s customer service: 830-563-2444

After finding which utility´s service area covers your location, have the following information handy (depending on construction status and/or if the area is regulated) to activate service:

  • Your full name and contact details (phone, email, SSN, possibly Driver´s License number)
  • New address to activate service (if unknown, address of nearby property)
  • Service start date
  • Load details
  • Site plan
  • Construction timeline

Regulated or Deregulated? For regulated zones, all residents setting up electricity will work exclusively with the Utility Company in the area. However, for the majority of residents, the section below lays out the next steps in setting up electricity for deregulated zones.

Electricity Service in Alpine and Deregulated Areas: Who & How

For homeowners setting up electricity to a newly constructed home in a deregulated zone, the utility service legwork is just the first half of the task (above). Residing in a deregulated zone, all homeowners and renters across the board (just moved-in and lifelong) can actually choose a preferred Retail Energy Provider (REP)!

Deciding which can seem like a daunting task but we are here to help. A great place to begin is the below list of 10 well-known providers or check out the full list of Retail Electric Providers. When you have chosen the provider that best suits your needs and interests, opening an account is pretty straightforward.

Simply call your favorite REP and give them the following:

  • Your exact address (including your street address, unit number, city/town, and zip code)
  • Your full name and contact information (phone number, email, address)
  • The date you require service (in other words, the date you move in)

Many REPs require a security deposit to activate accounts for new customers, so you may also be asked for your Social Security Number (SSN) in order for a credit check to be performed.

Power Outages and Customer Service

Your electric utility company is responsible for responding to blackout or similar electric problems in and around Alpine. Call their outage number if your power goes out unexpectedly, or if you witness a dangerous situation involving power lines (a tree branch too close to a electric line). Please note: Your provider´s customer service (not the utility company) is the go-to for all other concerns including questions about contract info, starting/stopping service, or billed charges.
