On Roman Catholic Feast Day in 1519, Spanish explorer, Alonso Alvarez de Pineda discovered Corpus Christi.

About a year later, to help postal workers know where to deliver letters, the city officially adopted its current name.

Corpus Christi Electricity Providers

As part of the state?s energy deregulated market, Corpus Christi allows consumers to choose their energy provider. While utilities continue to provide the delivery of this important service, the market for the supply of energy has opened electricity rates up to some tough competition.

Retail Electric Providers (REPs) offer many energy alternatives and plans, which tend to help keep the price of energy low. Since customers can switch REPs at any time, there is a significant incentive for REPs to keep their customers happy with their current options.

  • Amigo Energy
  • Breeze Energy
  • Discount Power
  • Gexa Energy

  • Power Express
  • Spark Energy
  • StarTex Power
