Searching for an electricity company in Houston is not a hard task. Most licensed electric companies in Texas do business in every area of Texas that is deregulated which means they all offer electric service in Houston TX as well.

The type of energy proposal or comparison you want to look at are the ones where the fees and charges that are normally in the terms of service and are hidden throughout a contract are bundled into the electricity rate so you can see what the total all-in bundled electric rate looks like.
You can get these types of proposals from energy consulting companies in the area.
The comparison lists usually will show the rates from cheapest to most expensive. Seeing a cheap electricity rate at the top of the chart gives you a quick answer to who has the best rate but you also want to consider quality of service, the stability of the company, and the customer satisfaction record.
You want to choose an energy consulting company that only works with good reputable Houston TX electricity companies that offer straight forward rate plans without tricks and gimmicks. Many consulting companies work with only 1 or 2 companies and so you can’t trust or go with this type of company as they are nothing more than outsourced sales. We recommend asking the consulting company exactly why the providers they use are as good as they claim they are.
Our lawyers go through energy contracts to look for pricing schemes. They also make sure the companies are not known for sneaking things by on their customers.
