Since Texas deregulated its energy market, Kingwood residents have been able to choose their own electricity providers. Thanks to this, you can save money and find a plan that best fits your needs and values. There are many providers to choose from in Kingwood, with some of the most popular being TXU Energy, 4Change Energy, and Direct Energy.
While you can choose your own electricity provider, you can’t choose your utility company. Your utility company, which is based on your location, delivers your electricity and maintains the local electric infrastructure. CenterPoint Energy is the utility company for Kingwood. Contact CenterPoint if you ever experience a power outage or have other issues with your electricity service.
Types of electricity plans in Kingwood
When you sign up for your next Kingwood electricity plan, you’ll have a variety of options to choose from. Some of the most popular types of electricity plans include:
- Fixed-rate plan: A fixed-rate electricity plan is one where you lock in your rate. When you sign up for your plan, you’ll enter into a contract that guarantees a certain price in cents per kWh. Because you’ve locked in your rate, you won’t be vulnerable to price hikes. On the other hand, you won’t experience energy savings when the electricity market rate is low.
- Variable-rate plan: Unlike fixed-rate plans, variable-rate electricity plans don’t have contracts, which means you can cancel at any time. You also can’t lock in your rate, meaning the rate you pay each month is dependent on the current wholesale electricity rate. Some months it will be higher, and others it will be lower.
- No-deposit plan: Many electricity providers require upfront deposits for customers who have lower credit scores. Luckily, some providers offer no-deposit electricity plans to get around this. A prepaid energy plan is a popular type of no-deposit plan where you pay for your electricity up front instead of after you use it.
