Seeing our South Texas communities thrive.​​
 
 

 At CPL Retail Energy, a Direct Energy company, we believe in building and maintaining strong connections with the people and communities we serve.

As your energy partner, we are committed to bringing you reliable, economical, and customer-focused service. As your neighbor, we are dedicated to seeing our South Texas communities thrive.

So how do we do that, and why? Well, the ‘why’ is easy…this is our community as well. We live and work here. Community engagement is a core part of who we are as a company, and we support and participate in a number of programs that benefit the regions in which we operate, live, and work. From Harlingen to McAllen, Victoria to Corpus Christi, we are involved and a proud member of the community.

We want a healthy economic and environmental climate…we want to take care of our home.

So, how do we accomplish these goals? Through persistence, dedication, and innovation. CPL and its Texas affiliates have invested millions of dollars into our Texas markets. We spend a significant amount of those resources helping you to better understand information necessary to implement the most efficient and cost-saving energy practices possible. We are also committed to support energy efficient services.

CPL Retail Energy is part of the Direct Energy family of companies, which serves more than 5 million customers throughout the United States and Canada, and is the third largest competitive electricity provider in Texas. We employ nearly 2,000 of your Texas friends and neighbors and our family of companies owns three power plants in this great state: the Frontera Energy Center in Mission, the Bastrop Energy Center in Austin, and the Paris Energy Center in Paris. Our vast network of resources allows us to maximize efficiencies by sharing processes, knowledge and information across all markets. We are able to bring you the benefits of a strong global business, while still valuing and maintaining our local heritage and commitment to customer service.

We sincerely appreciate your business and hope to stand beside you for many years to come.
