Power Makes a New World Possible

Together, we’re powering tomorrow’s untapped potential

These machines are so commonplace in our daily lives that we take them for granted, let alone think about the power that makes them work.  At EFH, Luminant and TXU Energy, we think about that power – a lot. We are part of a legacy of companies that have powered North Texas and beyond for more than 130 years and counting, changing the way we live, work and play.

Many of us don’t know a world before electricity; however, our ancestors lived when life’s daily tasks took more time and effort to complete. Before readily available electricity, household tasks like laundry were labor – and time – intensive requiring a washboard, washtub, wringers and even a washing bat; surviving a Texas summer was challenging to say the least (thank you air conditioning!); and getting from Point A to Point B required rumpled paper maps or worse yet, a little human interaction!

Like Kathleen Wolf Davis, editor-in-chief at Energy Central, mentions in her article, it is not until something is gone that we realize how important it is. It is because of the power industry that we have been able to fuel advancements in a variety of fields including the medical industry (CT scans, MRIs and ultrasounds), communication (computers, tablets and mobile phones), entertainment (video games, TVs and music), manufacturing (dishwashers, hair dryers, washing machines) and many other sectors.

The people who fuel our industry work to provide sustainable, affordable and reliable power so that our fellow Texans can conceive the ideas that better our lives. We are proud to produce the power that makes the day-to-day conveniences possible and moves us closer to the life-changing possibilities of tomorrow.
