Cypress electric companies

Texas residents have enjoyed a deregulated energy market since 2002. As a result, Cypress residents can choose their own electricity providers. The open market allows consumers to find a plan that best fits their budget and other preferences.

Cypress residents have many companies to choose from when shopping around for an electricity plan. Popular energy providers in the area include:

While your energy provider will generate or purchase the electricity that comes to your home, your local utility company still delivers the electricity and maintains the infrastructure. If you experience power outages or other problems with your electricity, contact your utility. The utility company for Cypress residents is CenterPoint Energy. You can contact CenterPoint in two ways:

  • Report an outage by calling 713-207-2222 or 800-332-7143
  • Fill out the contact form on the company’s website

Types of plans

There are many types of plans to choose from when choosing electricity rates in Cypress.

  • Fixed-rate plan: With a fixed-rate energy plan, you sign a contract and pay the same electricity supply rates each month of your contract. With this type of plan, you aren’t vulnerable to changes in the energy market. Your monthly bill will still vary based on usage and taxes and fees.
  • Variable-rate plan: If you’d rather roll the dice and hope for lower prices, you might prefer a variable-rate plan. This type of plan doesn’t have locked-in rates. Instead, your rates fluctuate with the market. When the market goes up, so does your electricity rate.
  • No-deposit plan: Energy providers often require consumers to pay a deposit on their energy plan, especially if they have a low credit score. No-deposit plans allow residents to skip the deposit. These plans are often reserved for those with high credit scores, but prepaid plans are another option for consumers who would prefer to avoid the credit check altogether.
  • Prepaid plan: Prepaid energy plans are a popular option that allows consumers to pay upfront for their electricity based on how much they expect to use. Prepaid plans are one type of no-deposit plan.
  • Green energy plan: Green energy is becoming a more popular option as consumers look for ways to reduce their carbon footprints. Texas is a leader in green energy, so Cypress residents likely won’t have a hard time finding a suitable green energy plan, with either partial or 100% renewable energy.
