Under Public Utility Regulatory Act (PURA) Section 39.3555, any person that provides
brokerage services for compensation or other consideration must register as a broker
with the Public Utility Commission of Texas (Commission). “Brokerage services” means
providing advice or procurement services to, or acting on behalf of, a retail electric
customer regarding the selection of a retail electric provider, or a product or service
offered by a retail electric provider. Brokers do not sell or take title to electric energy.
Registered brokers must comply with customer protection provisions, disclosure
requirements, and marketing guidelines established by the Commission. An administrative penalty may be
assessed for failure to comply with PURA or Commission rules.
