Read all energy supply plan details before deciding on one of the available Katy electricity options.

Learn about supply rates in Katy

Like all deregulated areas in Texas, Katy electricity options are plentiful - no matter if you live near Katy Mills, Mary Jo Pechham Park or Midway Barbeque. Understanding the differences between all options is important, especially when it comes to supply rates. There are two main supply rates available from energy companies in Katy: variable and fixed rate.

Variable-rate supply plans features a price per kilowatt hour (kWh) that changes monthly. This type of supply plan usually has shorter contract terms, such as a month-to-month term. Katy consumers who wish to have flexibility may find variable-rate supply plans favorable.

Fixed-rate supply plans, on the other hand, have supply rates that do not change from month to month, and instead remain the same for the duration of their contract. Fixed supply plans can have contract lengths ranging from three months to five years. Consumers who want price protection and stability may appreciate a fixed supply plan instead of a variable supply plan.

Discover renewable supply plans

Becoming eco-friendly isn't as hard as some people think. In fact, Katy electricity options allow business owners and residents to select Earth-friendly, renewable energy supply plans. Consumers who select a green energy plan can have their home or business energy consumption matched with renewable energy credits. These credits help offset your home or business building's electricity usage by supporting renewable energy generation that is put back onto the grid. Several energy companies in Katy offer green energy plans, so be sure to read up on how much each company will match energy usage with credits.

Know who to contact to report a power outage

While you may have the power to choose a retailer in Katy, electricity options do not extend to transmission and distribution service providers (also known as utilities). Katy, along with nearby Houston , fall within the service area of CenterPoint Energy. If you experience any power loss or know of any damage to power lines, please contact CenterPoint Energy, not your chosen retail electric provider. After all, you don't want to miss out on events such as Katy Summer Nights due to a loss of power. Let CenterPoint Energy know and call 1-800-332-7143 to report an electrical emergency.
