​Why Texas Is Big on Business

Looking to start or expand your business? Look no further than Texas. In addition to a natural geographic advantage and first-class transportation network, the Lone Star State is known nationally as a state that means business when it comes to economic development…and Oncor is proud to partner with you to meet your location siting and infrastructure needs.

In addition to some of the lowest business tax burdens in the nation – and competitive energy costs – Texans enjoy a high quality of life and low cost of living, as one of only a few states with no personal income tax. (Your employees will appreciate that come April 15!)

But don’t just take our word for it.

Texas was named the “Best State for Business” by CNBC and has been ranked the “Top State for Business” by CEO Magazine for the past six years.

National business publications continue to recognize Texas as a leader in growth potential and economic performance as Texas leads the nation out of recession.
