Energy providers and utility companies in Spring

There are several trusted energy companies in Spring. Because it is part of the deregulated energy market in Texas, customers can select Spring energy providers (also called retail electric providers or REPs). These companies buy the electricity and sell it to customers; the electricity is then distributed to customers’ homes by their utility company. Utilities (also called electric suppliers) are determined by location, so residents cannot choose their own.

  • Utility company in Spring: CenterPoint Energy is the electric supplier in Spring and is responsible for distributing electricity, maintaining power lines, and fixing outages. 
  • Electricity companies in Spring: Energy customers in Spring can choose from several electric companies, such as 4Change Energy, Express Energy, and TXU Energy.

Electricity rates in my area

Energy prices change based on your location due to the utility transmission fee, which is why you could have the same plan and provider as someone else in your area and yet pay different prices for electricity. Read the Electricity Facts Label (EFL) to learn about transmission and utility charges for the plan you want.  

Entering your ZIP code allows you to find the most accurate electricity rates near you. 

How weather affects Spring electricity rates

Weather impacts your energy rate because it influences demand. When more people use their air conditioners, it increases energy usage. In Spring, the temperatures average over 90 degrees from June through September. Meanwhile, the weather is more moderate from November through March. Knowing this, it’s wise to secure the best Spring electricity rates when demand is lower. If you’re moving to the area, use our marketplace to find the best plan for your needs by entering your ZIP code above.

Types of plans in Spring

There are a few different types of energy plans available in Spring, including fixed-rate, no-deposit, and variable-rate plans. If you have questions, give us a call at the phone number on your screen.

Fixed-rate plans in Spring

If you sign up for a fixed-rate plan, you will receive the same energy rate for the duration of your contract, typically between 12 and 36 months. You don’t have to worry about fluctuations in the market with a fixed-rate plan. If you do need to switch plans, you may incur an early termination fee. 

Variable-rate plans in Spring

With a variable-rate plan, your energy rate fluctuates each month depending on the rise and fall of the energy market. Some months, you’ll pay less than those with a fixed-rate plan, whereas other times, you’ll pay more. You do gain the freedom to switch plans without penalty, as there are no contracts with variable-rate plans. 

No-deposit plans in Spring

It is common for suppliers to check your credit before starting service. One way to avoid a credit check is by selecting a no-deposit plan. With this plan type, you prepay for electricity as you go, with your provider notifying you when your balance runs low.  

Green electricity in Spring

Texas is a leader in green energy, producing the most wind energy in the nation. It’s also within the top five states for solar energy production. Because of this, Spring locals have many options in terms of green energy plans.

Every electricity plan sold in the Lone Star State includes at least a percentage of renewable energy. To find out how much of your plan’s energy comes from renewable sources, view your Electricity Facts Label (EFL).

SaveOnEnergy’s tips for easy electricity service setup

  • 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.
