Houston electric companies

Did you know that Texas has deregulated electricity service? It means you have the power to choose electric providers in Houston. Because they compete to earn your business, you can compare electricity rates to find the best energy companies in Houston near me. 

There are many providers available in and around the Houston metro area. Depending on where you live, you can choose among TXU Energy, Just Energy, Pulse Power, and Frontier Utilities, to name just a few. 

While you have a choice of Houston electric suppliers who provide your electricity, you do not have your choice of utility companies. Utilities deliver the electricity to your business or home. They are also responsible for the upkeep of the infrastructure and responding to any outages.

In Houston, the utility is CenterPoint Energy. If you experience an outage, see a downed power line or another service issue, you can report it on their website. You can also call them at 1-800-332-7143.

Types of Houston electric plans

When you select a Houston electric provider, you might have a choice of different types of electric plans. Here is a breakdown of some of the most common ones available:

  • Fixed rates: Your electric rate will remain the same for the plan term. Most plan terms range from 12 to 36 months, depending on your provider. While your rate stays the same, the taxes imposed on electric service could change during your term. You could pay an early termination fee if you switch providers before your term ends.
  • Variable rates: Your rate can change each month based on the wholesale prices of your electricity. 
  • No deposit: Some electric suppliers might check your credit when you sign up for service. If you do not want to undergo a credit check or pay a deposit, you can sign up for a prepaid electric plan.
