Welcome to Round Rock, Texas
Round Rock, Texas straddles both sides of the Balcones Escarpment, a fault line in Texas that has - thankfully - remained inactive for over 15 million years.

In 2008, Money magazine named Round Rock one of the top 10 best small American cities in which to live, the only Texas city to break that threshold at #7. With the international headquarters of Dell located in Round Rock, it's no surprise that Round Rock was listed as the second-fasted growing city in the country by CNN in 2009.

Finding the right Round Rock electric company to meet your needs
What do energy companies in Round Rock include in their rates? When you compare electricity rates between Round Rock utilities, know that they are based on average kWh, which includes energy, transmission and distribution, and any recurring monthly fees and taxes. Some Round Rock electric companies also charge some one-time setup fees, so you'll want to keep that in mind as you compare rates.
What payment plans do Round Rock energy providers have? Like some other electric companies in Round Rock, TX, StarTex Power gives you the choice between a variable and a fixed-rate plan. If you need to keep your monthly budget predictable, the fixed-rate plan is probably right for you because it locks in a single rate that you pay per unit of energy used.
