Austin Energy

Austin Energy provides electricity to over 448,000 customers in the City of Austin, Travis County, and part of Williamson County. It is the country’s 8th largest publicly owned electric utility, which means it returns profits of roughly $105 million to the city’s general fund each year.  Austin Energy owns the nation’s first and largest green building program and has one of the top performing renewable energy programs, with nearly 50 percent of its power generation being carbon-emission free.
