Houston electric companies

Deregulation means you have ample choices in selecting your Houston electricity providers. Since there is more competition to earn your business, electric companies strive to offer you the best prices and terms. This can lead to an overwhelming number of options to choose from.

Types of Houston electric plans

With many electric providers available, it makes sense there are more kinds of energy plans to accommodate your needs. Here are a few of the most common types of energy plans:

  • Fixed-rate plans: Your rate is fixed, meaning you will pay the same price for electricity for the duration of your contract. Terms range from one to three years. If you cancel your plan before your term expires, you might be charged an early termination fee. Fixed-rate plans provide security and predictability in your energy bills.
  • Variable-rate plans Your rate changes each month based on electricity prices. However, you do not have a long-term contract, allowing you to switch anytime you need to. But keep in mind, variable-rate plans can lead to a spike in electric rates during times of high demand. 
  • No deposit plans: Some providers require a deposit before they will begin service. If you do not want to undergo a credit check, a no-deposit option helps you start electricity service while bypassing this step.
