Power to choose Galveston

Since Galveston is in a deregulated energy market, you have the power to choose your own rate and electricity provider. Unlike traditional energy markets, Galveston residents can pick the best plan based on their values and needs.

Galveston electric companies

Texas deregulated its energy market in 2002, and more than 85% of the state enjoys an open market. Residents and businesses can compare plans to choose an electricity service that fits their needs.

Your electric provider sells electricity to you through a plan. Galveston has a wide range of light companies to choose from. Popular options include TXU Energy, Constellation, 4Change Energy, and Frontier Utilities.

While you can choose your Galveston electricity provider, you cannot select your utility company as it is determined by your location. Regardless of which energy provider you choose, your local utility company will deliver your electricity and maintain the power infrastructure. It is also responsible for restoring electricity if the power goes out.

The utility company for Galveston residents is CenterPoint Energy. If you experience a power outage, contact CenterPoint by calling 800-332-7143 or using this online form.

Types of Galveston electric plans

Not all electricity plans are the same. When you shop around for your next plan from an electric company in Galveston, you’ll have the option to choose between a fixed-rate, variable-rate, or no-deposit plan.

  • Fixed-rate plans: You pay a fixed price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for your entire contract. Your rate won’t change from one month to the next. Fixed-rate plans usually have contracts ranging from 12–36 months, and you may be subject to early termination fees (ETFs) if you leave the contract prematurely.
  • Variable-rate plans: Unlike fixed-rate plans, variable-rate plans don’t have contracts. Your service is month to month, and your rate in any given month depends on the current energy market. You’ll notice your rate increasing in some months and decreasing in others. Because there’s no contract, there are no ETFs. You can switch to another plan at any point.
  • No-deposit plans: Most energy plans require an upfront deposit. When you sign up for your plan, your new provider will usually run a credit check, and you’ll pay a deposit unless you meet a certain threshold. If you have low credit or prefer to avoid paying a deposit, you can sign up for a prepaid no-deposit energy plan and pay for your electricity as you go.
