First Choice Power History
Originally Texas residents and businesses were forced to purchase electricity directly from their assigned utility. However in January of 2002, Texas awarded its citizens with the freedom to choose their own energy retailer. First Choice Power in Texas became a major player in this new open market, having already been established as a Texas electric company in 2001. Previously, First Choice Power electricity in Texas was known for being the retail electric provider of Texas New Mexico Power or TNMP. Before 2002, TNMP was one of only five utilities that provided energy to all of the Lone Star State. These five companies are still around today, known as “Transmission & Distribution Service Providers”. The name says it all – TDSP performs maintenance and handles transmission and distribution for First Choice Power in Texas and other electricity retailers.
First Choice Power Values
First Choice Power in TX likens its customer service to that of a small company, but boasts that its services are that of a major corporation. Personalized customer care and a bevy of resources make it the company that it is today. First Choice Power energy services representatives in Texas are trained to cater to all the needs of each and every client and are armed with a wealth of knowledge about the energy industry. This know-how and leadership is the driving force behind this retailer.
First Choice Power also believes that success isn’t completely driven by profit and that giving back to the community carries its own reward. The First Choice Power Fund supports nonprofits, schools and communities across Texas.
The Food First™ program is an initiative to end hunger in Texas. According to the Center for Public Policy Priorities, Texas is the second hungriest state in the U.S. Even worse is that Feeding America found that Texas’s children are the hungriest in the country. A USDA study found that more than 22% of Texans under the age of 18 encounter food insecurity every day.
Partnerships with local food banks and school lunch programs have brought First Choice Power closer to its ultimate goal. In fact, the award-winning program recently met its Million Meals challenge during Hunger Action Month in September 2011 by providing over a million meals to hungry children and adults in Texas communities. Employees took part in volunteer projects and prepared summer and holiday food bags for students. The cause was publicized with social medial and business customers were encouraged to contribute to canned food drives for food banks and soup kitchens. Pleased to be the recipient of the Corporate Social Responsibility Award from PR news, First Choice Power electricity in Texas is already embarking on its next million meals.
