Key Issues

Competitive Markets: We believe in the power of competition to spark innovation and unleash customer benefits and value. As such, we believe that markets should be allowed to function freely with minimal oversight and regulated only to the extent needed to ensure a fair and equitable treatment of market participants and customers.

Customer Protections: We believe that customers should be protected against bad actors in the market. As such, we believe that customer protection regulations should provide relief to customers in these situations. We believe that customer protections should be structured in such a way that does not inhibit innovation, prevent fair business practices or punish good actors operating in good faith.

Limited Income & Vulnerable Group Protections: We believe that certain groups of customers may require greater assistance and/or protections than other classes. Among these are limited income, elderly, and medical critical care customers. We support public and private programs to assist these customers with their energy needs and protections to ensure they have the energy they need to prevent life-threatening conditions.

EV & EV Infrastructure: Vistra supports the adoption of electric vehicles and the build out of EV infrastructure, including charging stations. Vistra believes that EVs and EV infrastructure are competitive products and should be provided through the competitive market. While Vistra does not support subsidization of competitive products in general, if legislative or regulatory action is taken to provide out-of-market support to EVs or EV infrastructure Vistra believes that these out-of-market actions should be targeted, time limited and done outside of utility rates.
