Serving Electric Utilities

​LCRA helps city-owned utilities and electric cooperatives keep electricity flowing to their consumers affordably, reliably and safely.

We also offer a variety of optional services to enhance value for consumers. Educational programs and renewable energy marketing opportunities can help local utilities serve their communities simply and effectively.

  • POWERHOUSE™ Energy Education Program

    Energy efficiency experts from LCRA visit middle schools all over Central Texas to teach students how they can save energy at home. Participants learn how their habits affect the environment and the availability of natural resources. Local utilities — LCRA wholesale customers — sponsor POWERHOUSE™ visits in their service areas.

  • Choose to Renew™

    If you want to make sure your energy dollars are spent on sustainable renewable energy, Choose to Renew™ might be for you. Consumers in some areas can invest in the future of clean energy sources in Texas by paying a little more for their electric power.
