Why Lone Star Energy?Why Lone Star Energy

Instead of celebrity spokespeople and fancy gimmicks, we offer no-nonsense electricity plans, fair rates and the kind of customer service we’d want for our families. Founded in 2018, Lone Star has always been about doing things differently. After all, that’s the way Texans have always done things. 

Our Story

Why We Love Tyler

There aren’t many places that can say they’re the Rose Capital of America. But in Tyler, it’s a fact. Back in the 1940s, more than half of the rose bushels in America were grown here in this corner of East Texas. Although still famous for its roses and other flowers, there’s far more to love about Tyler than its blooming buds. Nestled among magnificent pine trees just 100 miles east of Dallas, Rose City feels like it’s a world away from the rest of the Lone Star State. Yet you’ll still find all the things that make Texas wonderful here, from world-class barbecue and amazing architecture to Friday night football and events like the old-fashioned East Texas State Fair. 

With its small-town charm and natural beauty, Tyler is a true one-of-a-kind.

  • How can I save on my electricity bill in Tyler?

    Your monthly electricity bill is closely tied to how much power you use. In Tyler, your peak usage of electricity will come in the summer and winter when you are running your air conditioner and heater more often. Regardless of the time of year, limiting how much electricity you use will help you save on your light bill. Here’s how:

    In the summer, keep your thermostat at 78 degrees or higher. According to the Public Utility Commission of Texas, each degree of extra cooling increases electricity use from six to eight percent. In the winter, 68 degrees is the magic number to maintain comfort and promote cost savings.

    Double-check all the weather stripping on your doors and windows to prevent air leaks.

    Get routine maintenance done on your air conditioner and heater well before summer and winter arrives. This will help ensure your HVAC unit is performing optimally while also finding any issues before they become more significant.

    Flush out your AC lines and change your air filter every 45 days. You may need to switch your air filters sooner if you have pets.

    Keep your windows covered in the summer to prevent the sun from warming your home, causing your air conditioner to have to work harder to keep it cool. When it’s cold out, letting the sunlight in can help warm up your home.

    Unplug your appliances when you aren’t using them and only use the lights in rooms that you are in. 

  • Is Tyler part of Texas’ deregulated energy market?

    Tyler, Smith County and East Texas are within Texas’ deregulated energy market. Our state deregulated its energy market in 2002. Before then, electricity generation, distribution and customer service were handled by individual utilities. By deregulating the energy market, the Lone Star State separated the three elements of power delivery so that no single entity had a monopoly. This led to the creation of Retail Electricity Providers (REPs) like us, who handle customer service and billing. Whereas before you couldn’t choose your electricity provider, now you have a multitude of power companies and plans to pick from.  

  • Who provides electricity in Tyler?

    There are many electricity companies in Tyler, including Lone Star Energy. That means you can choose the provider and plan that you want for your apartment or home. However, the folks at Oncor are responsible for delivering your electricity. Oncor is the largest Transmission and Distribution Utility in Texas, serving more than 10 million residential and business customers in Dallas, Fort Worth, Midland, Odessa and beyond.
