TNMP Fixed-Rate Plans

If you want to save as much as possible on your electricity bill, your safest bet is a fixed-rate electricity plan. These plans lock in your electricity supply rate for the duration of the contract. On top of that, they also help keep your electricity bill predictable.

Variable-rate plans, on the other hand, can vary significantly from month to month, as they are susceptible to the wholesale electricity market (what electricity companies pay for electricity).

This is why you saw so many people with extremely high electricity bills after the February 2021 winter storm. When all the electricity generators went offline, wholesale electricity rates skyrocketed, and those that were on variable-rate electricity plans were susceptible to large rate hikes.

To ensure you get a great electricity plan from a reputable provider, only offers fixed-rate plans.

Texas-New Mexico Power’s History

TNMP started under the name Community Public Service Co. in late 1934, serving areas throughout Texas and New Mexico. It operated in a variety of industries, from electricity to natural gas to even creameries.

However, by the early 1970s, TNMP started to focus solely on the electricity industry. Then, in 1981, Community Public Service Co. changed its name to what it's called today, Texas-New Mexico Power. A few years later, TNMP created TNP Enterprises. This allowed them to move to create subsidiaries in different industries while TNMP focused on electricity.

When Texas deregulated its energy market in 2002, TNMP was one of the utility providers that participated. This meant its customers had to choose where they got their energy supply, giving them more options to choose from.

About three years later in 2005, PNM Resources purchased TNP. After this, PNM split off the New Mexico service areas from TNMP, giving the areas to a sister company. This is why, despite the name, Texas-New Mexico Power is only a Texas utility provider today.

Texas-New Mexico Power Delivery (TDU) Charges

Each deregulated electric utility in Texas has delivery charges (often called TDU charges) set by the state's Public Utilities Commission. They include a base charge and a charge based on your electricity use. It does not change no matter your electricity provider.

Generally, these rates change twice a year, on March 1st and September 1st. You can find the delivery charges by looking at an electricity plan's "Electricity Facts Label." puts the Electricity Facts Label in the "Plan Details" section of any Texas electricity plan.
