DALLAS -- More than 1 million Texas consumers can now check online to find out how much electricity they're using.

The Public Utility Commission announced Tuesday a new Web site that allows customers to manage residential and business bills by figuring out how much energy they used in 15-minute periods.

The Web site is available to more than 1 million customers of Oncor Electric Delivery and CenterPoint Energy. Once American Electric Power begins installing smart meters later this year, the PUC says more than 6.3 million Texas customers will be able to manage electricity use through SmartMeterTexas.com.

The Web site is designed for customers in competitive retail electric markets.
