DALLAS (AP) – TXU Energy is opening call centers in Abilene and Lubbock.

The Dallas-based electric provider on Tuesday announced the new call centers will mean about 500 jobs.

TXU currently has a call center in Irving.

David Hennekes, who is TXU’s vice president for residential markets, says the additional call centers will allow the company to better respond to customers.

TXU has more than 2 million customers in Texas.
