Henderson, Texas: Located in NorthEast Texas But NOT in ERCOT.
The city of Henderson is located in Northeast Texas. Texas has been in the news a bunch recently about the failures of ERCOT to provide stable electricity to homes and businesses during the recent Texas Blizzard. Contrary to just about all news reports, the ERCOT electric grid does not cover ALL of Texas. Northeast Texas is one of the exceptions. Electricity in the upper right corner of Texas is supplied by AEP SWEPCO. During the blizzard in February 2021, most customers had no loss of electricity, or very limited loss of electricity.
We realize how important stable and cost effective electricity is to businesses. Henderson:
- Average industrial annualized electric rates of 20% less than the national average;
- A workforce population of over 300,000;
- Direct incentive packages that are flexible and accessible;
- An up to date inventory of the best available industrial buildings and property.
AEP SWEPCO - Serving the Right Corner of North East Texas.
