Shop Around for Houston Electricity Rates

Houston and the energy industry have a long history together. Considered "The Energy Capital of the World," Houston is home to more than 3,700 energy-related businesses. With all of these connections to energy, it makes sense that Houston residents and business owners have the ability to shop around and compare electricity prices.

In 2002, Texas legislators deregulated the Houston electricity rates market. Now, Houston's 2.1 million plus residents have the opportunity to shop for electricity supply plans from a variety of competitive retail electric providers (REPs). When you compare electricity supply prices, you may find that Just Energy in Houston offers a plan that fits the needs of your home or business.

No matter what REP you choose, CenterPoint Energy will still take care of your electricity lines and assist you during a power outage. There won't be any changes to how electricity reaches your home.

How do I get Just Energy in Houston?

When you shop for Houston electricity rates from Just Energy or any other REP, you will typically have access to a variety of supply rates and plans.

One of the popular options is a variable-rate supply plan. This plan can rise and fall according to certain factors within the electricity market. With a variable-rate supply plan from Just Energy, you pay the market supply price of electricity and can take advantage of market lows. Of course, you also need to be prepared to pay higher supply prices when the market rate rises.

Another popular option available is a fixed-rate electricity supply plan. Just Energy offers this plan to provide customers with price protection for supply for up to five years. With this type of plan, you'll always know your supply rate, which makes budgeting for energy bills a little easier.

Where can I find the best Houston electricity rates?

There's no cut-and-dry way to ensure you have the best available electric supply plan. However, you'll improve your chances of finding a competitive supply rate if you compare electricity prices. Houston residents should take advantage of their power to choose a REP that fits their home or business energy supply needs.
