Shop electricity rates in Galveston

Galveston sets itself apart from much of the rest of Texas because its beaches make it a popular tourist destination, despite its relatively small permanent population of about 50,000. But it’s like much of the rest of Texas in that it has deregulated electricity, meaning those residents enjoy the power to choose their Galveston electricity rates.

Galveston’s climate, like most of the state’s, is classified as humid subtropical. The humidity makes temperatures, which actually rarely exceed 90 degrees, seem much hotter. It almost goes without saying that summer is the hottest time of year. Texans, on average, use more than twice as much electricity in August as in April.

Green energy in Galveston

Galveston electricity plans benefit from Texas’ status as one of the largest renewable energy producers in the U.S. Texas ranks first in wind energy generation and in the top five for solar energy generation.

Most providers offer at least some renewable energy in each plan, and some offer customers the opportunity to upgrade to 100 percent renewable energy. Check the Electricity Facts Label (EFL) to see what percentage of renewable energy is commonly offered in your plan.

Finally, some providers offer only green plans: Iberdrola Texas, Gexa Energy, Chariot Energy, Green Mountain Energy.

A few things to remember

  • Don’t forget to read your plan’s Electricity Facts Label before signing up. It contains important information including:
    • Price per kilowatt-hour based on usage
    • % renewable energy sourcing
    • Early termination fees
  • Enjoy hassle-free supplier setup. Once your order has been confirmed, your new supplier will set up service with your utility, or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP) – but don’t worry, there shouldn’t be any interruption to your power during the switch.
  • Understanding your electricity bill. Your local TDSP will still deliver your electricity and maintain electric infrastructure including meters and power lines. Your utility fees can be found as TDU or TDSP charges on your monthly bill. They are independent of your supplier rate.

Energy providers and utility companies in Galveston

What’s the difference between electricity providers and electricity utilities in Texas?

Retail electricity providers buy or generate the power you use for cooking, cooling and heating, and other purposes. Among Galveston providers are TXU Energy, 4Change Energy, Gexa Energy, and Constellation.

That power is delivered to your home by the utility – also known as a transmission and delivery utility or a transmission and delivery service provider. The TDSP also maintains the infrastructure used for electricity delivery – that’s why it’s the company to call when there’s an outage.

Two TDSPs serve different parts of Galveston:
