If you live in McAllen and experience a power outage, first and foremost, it’s important to remain calm. In order to get answers as to why and for how long, you’ll need to reach out to your Transmission and Distribution Service Provider (TDSP). For general inquiries or service requests, call AEP Central at 1-866-223-8508. Unfortunately, electricity companies like Rhythm, Reliant or TXU have no control over power outages.

As one of Texas' original border towns-and as part of one of its largest metropolitan areas with a still-growing population of 143,268-McAllen, Texas is bustling city and a major center for international trade, tourism, retail, and manufacturing. McAllen is especially notable for its cultural cross-pollination with Reynosa, Mexico, which lies directly across the Rio Grande, forming an international conurbation whose combined population is over 4 million.

For most of the 1900s, McAllen's economy was based on agriculture and ranching. But since the 1980s and especially after the ratification of NAFTA in 1994, international trade has taken center stage, supported by healthcare, retail, and tourism. Since 1973 the McAllen Miller International Airport and the area between Reymosa and McAllen have been designated as foreign trade zones (FTZ), offering major transportation cost savings and logistical support services for manufacturers.

Like many other towns in Texas, McAllen got its start as a railroad depot. In this case it was the St. Louis, Brownsville and Mexico Railway, which ran along the Gulf of Mexico from Brownsville down to Houston, Texas. The township was formed in December of 1905 and named after John McAllen, a local rancher who donated land to accommodate the railway and depot. This original town of McAllen grew slowly and was challenged by the growth and economic dominance of the younger nearby town of East McAllen, which eventually won the fight and took over both the land and the name.

Reynosa and McAllen are linked both by proximity and by tourism and trade. In 1941 the old bridge to Reynosa was replaced with a new suspension bridge by the city of McAllen, which charged tolls to cross it. This improved access point to Mexico made McAllen a winter resort destination for many Americans, as it still is to this day. Many Mexicans, in turn, used the opportunity to find work and engage in tourism in McAllen. In 1947 oil was discovered near Reynosa, creating a population boom in that town that had a further positive effect on trade and tourism between the two cities. The deregulation of the energy market in Texas has reduced the price of McAllen electricity plans far below the national average.

For tourists today-or for intrepid McAllen residents out to explore the city, McAllen offers plenty of attractions. Notable museums include the International Museum of Art and Science and the Veteran's War Memorial of Texas, while outdoorsy types can visit the McAllen Nature Center, go fishing or kayaking in the Town Lake at Firemen's Park, or take a swim in one of the city's three public pools. Of note is the award-winning McAllen Public Library, which was retrofitted out of a defunct Wal-Mart. Over half the population is McAllen is Hispanic in origin, so Hispanic culture in McAllen is a strong current.

Many annual events draw crowds from both sides of the border, including the Fourth of July Fajita Cookoff, the Annual Texas Square Dance Jamboree, the Texas Hunters and Sportsman's Expo, the Texas Citrus Fiesta, Springfest!, and Borderfest, just to name a few.
