News Articles About Mega Energy

Texas Electricity News & Notes 1/10/2013

Posted on There were a couple of news items that hit the Texas electricity market this week. Neither of them on their own require enough analysis to warrant an entire blog post, so I'm going to stick them together in this one blog post. First up, we have TXU Energy acquiring the customers of Mega Energy. This is somewhat surprising because unlike other bigger companies (such as Reliant, Direct Energy, Just Energy, Constellation Energy) TXU hasn't typically increased the size of their customer base through acquisition. Additionally, it's been speculated that TXU has more than their fair share financial concerns, which one wouldn't think would leave a lot of room to be buying up other customers. That being said, this move seems to be happening quickly, as TXU and Mega have already announced the move on social networking sites, and TXU has said the transition will begin over the next few weeks. TXU has also claimed that Mega Energy customers will be kept in their remaining contract terms and have an equal or lower Cancellation Fee applied to their contracts, and that their rate will be lower than their current Mega Energy rate. The other piece of news is that Glacial Energy and the PUC have "reached an agreement in principle" on the PUC's efforts to revoke Glacial Energy's certificate to sell electricity in Texas. Which sounds to me like Glacial's certificate isn't, in fact, going to end up being revoked. Because that doesn't seem like something they'd agree to in a negotiation. In fact, I don't think that would even qualify AS a negotiation. No details have been disclosed about the particulars regarding the settlement.

Texas Electricity Provider Map

Posted on Last week's purchase of First Choice Power by Direct Energy was yet another major acquisition of a Retail Electricity Provider by a major energy conglomerate. There's been around half a dozen of these deals in the past year, and in my opinion, things have gotten a bit muddled and confusing. So I wanted to write a post to chart exactly who owns who in the deregulated electricity space in Texas. Dominion Resources: Dominion Energy probably isn't a name that is very recognized by Texas electricity customers. However, they are a huge energy company that deals in both energy generation and distribution in multiple states. Headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, they own the incumbent and regulated electricity providers in Virginia and North Carolina. In Texas, they own Cirro Energy, which they purchased in 2008. Earlier this year, Cirro Energy purchased Simple Power and absorbed their customers. NRG: NRG, a new Jersey based company, is another huge energy company with massive power generation resources. On top of energy generation plants, NRG also owns Green Mountain Energy, which they purchased in 2010 for 350 million dollars. In 2009, they purchased former incumbent Texas electricity provider Reliant Energy for 287 million and change when Reliant was under heavy financial distress. This was a steal considering Reliant was the second largest REP in the state at the time and has huge brand recognition. In turn, Reliant Energy owns (and I believe operates) Pennywise Power, which is a new brand they've put into the deregulated Texas electricity market to try and capture different customers without effecting their core brand. So NRG owns Green Mountain and Reliant, and Reliant in turn owns Pennywise Power. Just Energy - Just Energy is yet another big energy company, with resources all over North America. They had been a fairly smaller player in the retail electricity market in Texas until recently. Just Energy itself was mostly a niche provider, offering 5 year long term contracts to customers. However, they recently purchased the entire retail arm of Fulcrum Power. That includes Amigo Energy, Tara Energy, and Smart Prepaid. So now all of those brands are part of the Just Energy portfolio. They'll likely keep the branding and still do business under the names Tara and Amigo, but it's all Just Energy. Just Energy also owns another smaller REP, Commerce Energy. Direct Energy: Direct Energy is actually a subsidiary of a British company called Centrica, but they're known almost exclusively in North America as Direct Energy, so that's the name we're going with. Direct Energy is yet another huge energy generation company with huge and varied resources. In the retail electricity space they do business as Direct Energy and they are one of the biggest REP's in Texas. They also operate in Texas as WTU Energy and CPL Energy in two respective TDSPs. In the Spring, Direct Energy also purchased Gateway Energy Resources for 90 millions dollars. Since then, Direct has removed Gateway as a brand from doing business in Texas. Just last week, Direct Energy made another huge purchase, this time of First Choice Power for 270 million dollars. Which is a huge price tag. So, as of now, every company I mentioned above is really a subsidiary of Direct Energy. Constellation Energy: Constellation Energy is the largest energy supplier in America. Their 2007 revenues were 21 billion dollars. So yes, they're another big energy guy. They own the regulated electricity entity Baltimore Gas and Electric. In 2 month period last spring and summer, Constellation announced purchases of both StarTex Power as well as MX Energy, two retail electricity providers that operate in the Texas deregulated markets. Gexa Energy: NextEra Energy is the parent company of Florida Power and Light, the regulated electricity provider for much of Florida. They're another big energy company, having generation resources in over 20 states. In 2005, Florida Power & Light purchased Gexa Energy. They still do business in Texas under the name Gexa. Dynowatt: Dynowatt is a subsidiary of Accent Energy, which is a large company with natural gas ties in Ohio. Accent also serves deregulated New York, but they do business in Texas as Dynowatt. TXU Energy: TXU is actually a subsidiary of Energy Future Holdings, which also owns Luminant, the power generation portion of the old TXU company that was forced to split because of deregulation laws. Now Luminant and TXU operate separately. TXU is the largest individual REP in Texas and one of the two former incumbent providers. The following Retail Electricity Providers are stand-alone entities: Texpo Energy: Texpo Energy is a smaller company operating in Texas. What makes them interesting is that they actually operate under 3 different brand names while all sharing the same PUC Certificate. The other two brands are Southwest Power & Light and YEP. So to sum things up, Texpo, Southwest Power & Light, and YEP are all the same company operating in Texas under different names.
  • Champion Energy
  • Stream Energy
  • Ambit Energy
  • Brilliant Energy
  • Texas Power
  • Liberty Power
  • Mega Energy
  • APNA Energy
  • Bounce Energy
  • Spark Energy
Hopefully this helps to give people a clearer picture about who some of the players are in Texas electricity. It is important that people know exactly who the company is that is supplying their electricity. For example, if someone had a bad experience with one company, they might not want to get service from another one of their subsidiaries. And since there's been so many purchases and mergings of REP's in the last 6 months, I thought it might be a good idea to chronicle which companies have ended where after the dust has settled. I'll try to update this page moving forward as well. I doubt we've seen the last of big REP acquisitions, so this family tree might change.
