Moving to a new address?

Moving is a giant hassle, even in Texas. Movers in the state have to take care of a number of tasks, including finding an energy provider. Choose Energy® is happy to help. How? By making sure Texas movers get the straight scoop. Read on; then when you’re ready to shop, enter your ZIP code above.

What Texas movers should know

  • Texas movers can secure a rate today for a plan that doesn’t start at their new address for up to 90 days.
  • Texas movers currently under contract with retail electric providers are eligible to change providers without an early termination fee as long as they provide proof of the move (such as a forwarding address).
  • Most Texas homes have smart meters, which means service will be activated remotely. An electrician won’t need to come to the home.
  • A rule of thumb for determining electricity usage in a different home: Households use on average 1 kilowatt hour (kWh) per square foot for a family of four. That means a family of four moving into an 1,800-square-foot home would use about 1,800 kWh per month.
  • After completing the move, be sure to contact the electricity provider at the old residence to ensure service has been canceled.
