Pasadena electric companies

Texas lawmakers deregulated the state’s energy market in 2002. Since then, most residents in the state have been able to choose their own providers. Thanks to this open market, homeowners can often find lower Pasadena electricity rates by switching to a different company. Some of the most popular electricity providers in Pasadena include:

While Pasadena residents can choose the company that supplies their electricity, it’s still their local electric utility, Centerpoint Energy, that delivers the electricity and maintains the infrastructure. When you experience power outages, you should contact CenterPoint to report them.

Types of plans

When it comes to choosing your own electricity provider, there are many different plans to choose from. That gives every consumer a chance to find one that meets their needs. Some common plans include:

  • Fixed-rate plans: When you sign up for a fixed-rate energy plan, you lock in electricity supply rates for the entire term of your contract. You pay the same rates each month no matter what happens with the energy market. These plans are great for consumers who like the predictability that comes with paying the same rates. You’re protected from supply rate increases. On the other hand, you lose out on saving when the market rate goes down.
  • Variable-rate plans: Rather than having the same rate for the entire contract, variable-rate plans fluctuate with the market. Your electricity supply rate may increase or decrease each month depending on what happens with the energy market. This could be good news if rates go down, but it also means you could see your bill spike.
  • No-deposit plans: Some electricity plans require customers to pay a deposit, especially if they have a lower credit score. Some no-deposit plans exist and allow people to avoid it. Some no-deposit plans are only available to residents with good credit, but others allow customers to avoid a credit check altogether.
  • Prepaid plans: A prepaid plan is a type of no-deposit plan where consumers pay upfront for the amount of electricity they expect to use throughout the month. These plans have the benefit of not being locked into a contract, but you have to have a good idea of how much electricity you’ll use in the month ahead.
  • Green energy plans: Many consumers are interested in transitioning to renewable energy to reduce their carbon footprint. Texas is a leader in green energy, making it easy for Pasadena residents to find green energy plans to fit their needs.
