Electric Generation facility
The companies making up Vistra Energy have a rich heritage of serving Texas’s power needs in a history that stretches all the way back to 1882, when the first electric light brightened the North Texas night. We are proud of our commitment to service and the role we have played in the economic, civic and cultural development of the state. Here is a brief historical timeline of how Vistra Energy came to be.
On April 9, 2018, Vistra completed its previously announced merger with Dynegy Inc., creating the lowest-cost integrated power company in the industry. The merger positions the combined company as the leading integrated retail and generation platform throughout key competitive power markets in the United States.
In January and February, Vistra retires three coal plants and their supporting mines as announced the previous fall: Monticello Power Plant, Big Brown Plant and Mine, and Sandow Power Plant and Three Oaks Mine.
