If you’ve lived outside a deregulated market, you might have bought energy and had outages serviced by the same company. That’s not how it works in Tomball. Here, the best point of contact for outages or lines upkeep is your utility, which is CenterPoint Energy. CenterPoint is focused on local line maintenance. The cost of transmitting electricity through their lines comes in the form of a fee, which is rolled into your electricity plan.
The energy companies themselves are numerous. Remember, you have the freedom to choose! Tomball electricity providers include Gexa Energy, 4Change Energy, and TXU Energy. The cheapest electricity Tomball offers right now includes 6.6 cents/kWh plans from Express Energy, Frontier Utilities, and Pulse Power. These rates are subject to change, though, so check for your own best rate today.
Types of electricity plans in Tomball
Tomball electricity plans have different structures. Some have fees, others have contracts, and some come with a required deposit. Learn more about which fits you best.
- Fixed-rate plan: Your basic fixed-rate plan will offer an attractive rate in exchange for you signing a contract with them for a period of time. Contract lengths are often 12 months. The key is to pick a fixed-rate plan when you know you’ll stick with it. Early termination fees do exist.
- Variable-rate plan: Variable-rate plans are month by month. There is no contract so you can switch providers at any time. In exchange, you don’t get a guaranteed rate for a whole year. Instead, when the energy market is more expensive, your cost will go up. You may find yourself switching to a new provider if the rate gets too high.
- No-deposit and prepaid plans: Energy companies typically require customers to put down a deposit to get electricity. However, there are plans to let you avoid a down payment. These plans are called no-deposit plans. You can agree to prepay for your electricity by setting up an account and having each month’s costs pulled from your existing balance. When you need more money in the account, your provider will let you know so you can top it up.
