Comparing Rates

To evaluate Houston electricity properly, simply compare the rates from different suppliers in a competitive market. There are numerous suppliers in the Houston area that are posting their rates along with the agreements and plans they provide. Some offer energy at a fixed price while others offer varying prices that can fluctuate during the hours of the day, or month-to-month. Variable rates are often higher during the warm months, when air-conditioners run higher during certain times of the day. Other rates can fluctuate with a higher or lower monthly price, based on the need of the Houston population.

Suppliers offer Houston electricity without a contract or at a fixed rate over a specific amount of time, based on an agreement. Additional considerations when comparing rates is to determine exactly how the homeowner or business owner’s electricity is generated (hydro, solar, wind, gas, coal, etc.).

Typically, Houston electricity providers offer a combined bill, where a specific portion of the charges will be redirected to the delivery company (the local utility), and the remainder to the Houston electricity provider.
