Conroe energy deregulation

In 2002, energy became deregulated in most of Texas, including Conroe. Since then, local residents and business owners have been able to choose an electricity provider, instead of purchasing power directly from their utility company

In the Lone Star State, deregulation has led to increased competition among electricity providers. Residential electricity rates in Texas are 10 percent lower than the national average. Similarly, commercial electricity rates are almost 23 percent lower than the U.S. average.

As you shop around for the best Conroe electricity rates, you’ll notice that there are quite a few providers to pick from. At Choose Energy, we’re here to guide you through the process and help you find cheap electricity Conroe.

While you compare electric rates Conroe, you’ll likely see prepaid electricity plans, which are available for customers with smart meters.

Conroe utility companies & energy providers

As we mentioned earlier, the Texas energy deregulation means that electric customers now buy electricity from REPs, rather than their utility company. Nowadays, utility companies are responsible for delivering electricity to your home and tending to power lines and other energy infrastructure in your area. 

In Conroe, your utility company is CenterPoint Energy. If you’re experiencing a power outage in Conroe, you’ll need to contact CenterPoint to report it.

In contrast, electricity providers sell energy to consumers. Unlike your utility company, you have the power to choose from a number of Conroe electricity providers. Popular providers in the area include 4Change Energy, Express Energy and TXU Energy. Enter your ZIP code above to start browsing Conroe electricity rates and plans from these and other providers.

Conroe renewable energy

Texas is a major producer of renewable energy in the United States, creating the most wind power of all states. The Lone Star State also produces the fifth-most solar energy in the country. All Texas energy plans contain a percentage of renewable energy.

As a Conroe energy consumer, you can opt to go further. Some providers only sell green energy plans. Among these are Gexa Energy, Green Mountain Energy and Iberdrola Texas

When you purchase a renewable energy plan, your provider will generally buy green energy credits on your behalf to offset your usage. Typically, these credits will come in the form of renewable energy credits (RECs) or carbon offsets. The credits are used to purchase green energy, which feeds into the power grid. Under these plans, your home isn’t directly powered by renewable energy.
