You’re Viewing CenterPoint Electric Rates for August 2020
From downtown Houston to the beaches of Galveston, 2.5 million Texans have the right to choose their electricity company. Houston area electricity ratesare highly competitive and the proof is in the perks.
New home? It’s a smart idea to lock in your electric rate for as long as possible. Therefore, we recommend a 24 month rate contract. In addition to getting the same low rate for 2 years, there’s bonuses such as free Google, Amazon and Nest devices.
Choose a fixed rate for 3 years and be assured your price will stay the same, even on Houston’s hottest day. To secure our cheapest rate, good credit is required. If you need electricity today and do not have credit, you can pay as you go.

CenterPoint Electricity Providers
There’s over 100 retail electric providers (REPs) operating within the CenterPoint territory. Choosing the best electric company in Houston can be tricky with so many options.
Moving to the CenterPoint area? Switching electric companies in Houston is simple and takes anywhere from 10-20 minutes over the phone. Enrolling for an energy plan online is a popular option as it is faster.
After choosing a rate plan, your new electric company works directly with CenterPoint to turn on your power. There’s no need to contact your old provider to make the change. However, make sure you’ve paid your final bill or you’ll be issued a switch hold which will delay your connection.
Who do I contact if my lights go out in Houston?
Storms, wildlife, fallen tree limbs and damaged equipment are just some of the causes of power outages. If you live in the Houston area and your power is out, contact CenterPoint Energy customer service by phone at 713-207-2222 or online.
