Laredo, Texas is one of the few cities in America that has flown more than one flag during its long and unique history. In total, Laredo has flown 7 flags including, the Flag of the Republic of the Rio Grande, and the six flags of Texas. Each flag has an important link to the seven countries that claimed ownership of the land at one point or another. These countries include: France, Spain, Mexico, Republic of the Rio Grande, Texas, Confederacy and the United States of America.

Today, Laredo is a community with a lively entertainment and festival scene, and fantastic opportunities for shopping. Located right near the boarder between Mexico and the U.S, this city also holds the record for one of the nation’s oldest crossing points.

Laredo Electricity Providers

Energy deregulation took affect in Texas in 2002. It is a law that required utilities to give up control over the supply of energy to homes and businesses. It gave Retail Electric Providers (REPs) the chance to take advantage of the open market, and offer their energy services. Since there are now so many REP options, it also means that residents of Laredo can benefit from lower energy costs, and choose a REP with plans and rates that satisfy specific needs.

The following is a list that contains some of the REPs available in Laredo:

  • 4Change Energy
  • Amigo Energy
  • Breeze Energy
  • Discount Power
  • Gexa Energy
  • Green Mountain Energy
  • Hino Electric
  • Infinite Energy
  • Infuse Energy
  • Pennywise Power
  • Power Express
  • Spark Energy
  • StarTex Power
  • Tara Energy
  • Texans Energy
