Electricity Companies in Houston

The Houston area is serviced by CenterPoint Energy, the local electric utility company. While CenterPoint used to be the only electricity company available in Houston, Houstonians now have the power to choose their provider thanks to deregulation. Are you familiar with the term ERCOT and its respective TDUs (Transmission & Distribution Utilities), also known as TDSPs (Transmission & Distribution Service Providers)? ERCOT stands for the “Electric Reliability Council of Texas.” ERCOT is the current deregulated electricity market area in Texas.

While CenterPoint used to be the only electricity company available in Houston, Houstonians now have the power to choose their provider thanks to deregulation. When you switch electricity companies, CenterPoint will continue to deliver power to your home over the same wires and poles; all that changes is your rate and who sends your bill.

Houston electric companies include TXU Energy, Bounce Energy, Green Mountain Energy, Cirro Energy, 4Change Energy, Reliant Energy, Just Energy, Direct Energy, and First Choice Power. With flexible plan options such as 1 Year, Month-to-Month, 6 Months, 9 Months, 18 Months and 2 years, you can find the best electricity rates in the CenterPoint area for your residential needs.
