Unfortunately, we don't currently service that area.
Your area is not deregulated
Unfortunately, the area you live in is not open to retail competition, and as a result we cannot help you switch away from your current electricity provider.
There is no one fixed standard for balanced billing, and every electricity provider calculates them differently. Our Savings Calculator does not take these differences into account, so we recommend that you call us at (832) 975-1000 to discuss your needs further.

FACT: All electricity comes from the same place, regardless of who your retail electric provider is, whose only function is setting rates and billing.
FACT: Electricity plans aren’t always as straightforward as they seem and the rate changes depending on how much electricity you use. A good plan for your neighbor may not be a good plan for you.
FACT: Retail electric providers do NOT reward loyalty. Renewal rates are almost always higher than rates for new customers.

A 3-digit number that can be found on the back of your VISA, MasterCard or Discover branded credit or debit card.
Social Security Number (SSN)

This is the number of kWh of electricity you used during the month. It is a number usually found on the second page of your bill:
The Meter Number is used to identify the electric meter on a property. We use this to look up how much electricity you use so we can determine the optimal energy plan for you. It usually starts with the letter 'I' followed by 8 numbers, and is often on the second page of your electricity bill.
Balanced Billing, or Average Billing as some providers call it, is a rate plan where customers pay the same fixed amount for electricity each month of their contract. There is some times a an additional payment at the end of the contract, which our savings estimator does not take into account.
