Am I Eligible to Save?

Need Utility Information?

Electricity bills have skyrocketed over the last five years. But, many businesses and families have paid less because they shopped around. Others have chosen power from sources which pollute less.

The prices of some companies are much lower than others, and there are "green power" alternatives which create far fewer harmful emissions. The City of Houston required all responding electricity providers to meet specific standards of financial strength.

We urge Houstonians to become informed electricity consumers. Informed consumers have saved hundreds of dollars on utility bills according to the Texas Public Utility Commission. You should also know your choice of power supplier does not affect the reliability; Center Point Energy is responsible for that.

After this year, neither the City nor the Public Utility Commission will have as much control over electricity rates. So, consumers must take some responsibility for protecting themselves when the price rises too much.

Some people may prefer to buy the cheapest possible electricity. Others may choose a supplier offering "green power." It's your choice. And remember to conserve energy whenever you can.

Relocating Outside of the Greater Houston area?

If you've recently decided that you have to relocate to a different city and you don't know if you can get your new services turned on, because you don't know if you can sell your home quickly enough; then it may be a good idea to compare offers from companies that buy houses in Houston. Once you receive the offers compare them with eachother to see who is offering the best price in the shortest amount of time so that you can get your utility services out of your name quickly. If you need to get out of a problem or vacant house where utilities are costing you too much to maintain, find out how to sell your vacant house, before putting it on the market.

There are three easy steps that help you discover your options:

Step 1. Enter your zip code above.
Step 2. Choose your energy plan.
Step 3. Compare electric providers.
