Xcel Energy – Texas

AP.Power.PrimaryIcons.RGB.Black

There are few towns that are more iconic of Texas than Amarillo and Lubbock. Amarillo holds the distinction as the wind energy capital of the world, as well as offering numerous opportunities for tech-based employment (aerospace, agriculture) to nearly 200,000 of its residents. Of course, Amarillo boasts its own unique artist culture, such as the one-of-a-kind Cadillac Ranch and the city’s many art installations.

Lubbock boasts the same breathtaking landscape that’s conjured up when one thinks of cowboy Westerns, while also serving as the home to Texas Tech University. Culturally, there’s many museums to visit National Ranching Heritage Center, American Wind Power Center, and the Buddy Holly Center—a tribute to the 50’s singer that hailed from Lubbock.

As one of the top oil producing states in the United States, it is no surprise that Texas’ energy consumption is supplied predominantly by natural gas and crude oil. Additionally, two nuclear power plants both equipped with twin reactors supply power to the state (The South Texas Project (STP) near Bay City and the Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant Glen Rose, TX.) Because of Texas immense amount of open space and capabilities, Texas was the leading oil-producing state in the U.S. in 2017, producing more than 1/3 of the country’s crude oil. 29 petroleum refineries in Texas were able to process over 5.6 million barrels of crude oil daily, which accounts for a staggering 30% of total U.S. refining capacity. Furthermore, Texas accounts for more than 1/4 of U.S. marketed natural gas production (as of 2016), which makes Texas the leading natural gas producer in the country.

And, for sustainable energy, Texas also leads the nation in wind-powered generation capacity (more than 21,450 megawatts)—with Texas wind turbines cumulatively producing more electricity than both of the state’s nuclear power plants. The state has been progressing towards lowering its reliance on coal, with several coal plants closing to make way for natural gas and other forms of energy to take precedence in Texas’ energy mix.

How does Arcadia Power help me pay my Xcel Energy bill more efficiently?

When you enroll in Bill Pay, Arcadia Power will receive your Xcel Energy bill and we will send you one statement. This makes how you pay Xcel Energy bills easier.

However, if you aren’t enrolled in Arcadia Power’s Bill Pay program, you will continue to receive your Xcel Energy utility bills Additionally, if you receive separate utility bills for gas, water, or sewage, those bills from your Xcel Energy (and other utilities) will continue to come in the mail.

If you’re curious, here’s how the process works:

1

Your Xcel Energy bill is sent directly to Arcadia Power.

2

We email you a statement that includes your utility bill charge, your clean energy and overall energy usage, and savings credits or charges from any Arcadia Power programs you are enrolled in.

3

Three days after we send your statement, we charge the payment method you provided to make sure your electric bill is paid on time, every time. And since you’re set up for autopay, you won’t need to do a thing.
