As part of Texas’s 1999 electric utility restructuring legislation, the state’s retail electric providers are required to disclose certain information in the form of a standardized “Electricity Facts Label” to residential and small commercial customers. This label, which must be disclosed upon request, includes details regarding sources of electric generation, such as the provider’s fuel mix and emissions.
