Energy providers and utility companies in The Woodlands

It’s important to establish the difference between electricity providers and utility companies. In deregulated areas, your utility company handles the delivery of electricity and responds to power outages. On the other hand, your electricity provider generates or buys the power, sets rates, and sells energy directly to you.

  • The Woodlands utility company: You can’t select your utility because it’s based on where you live. In The Woodlands, your utility is CenterPoint Energy. Contact CenterPoint if there is ever a power outage in your area.
  • The Woodlands electricity providers: In contrast, you’re free to choose from a number of The Woodlands electricity providers, including trusted companies like Cirro Energy, Direct Energy, and TXU Energy.

Power outages in The Woodlands

Even though you won’t purchase power directly from your utility company, it still plays a key role in getting electricity to your community. Not only do utilities deliver energy to your property, but they also maintain power lines and fix outages. Be sure to contact your utility (and not your provider) if you’re experiencing an outage.

Electricity rates in my area

In the past, deregulated energy customers had to sort through individual provider websites to find electricity prices in their area. But now, with the SaveOnEnergy marketplace, you can compare electric rates in The Woodlands in a single place. It’s a far more practical option than trying to piece together the results from searching for “electricity rates in my area” and “best electric company near me” online.

It’s typical for providers to charge different rates for the same plan, depending on where you are. These varying prices are due to different utility transmission charges across the state. For that reason, it’s best to limit your search results to your local area by using a tool like SaveOnEnergy. Share your ZIP code above to explore available electricity rates in your area right now.

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.

Types of plans in The Woodlands

Whether you’re looking for a fixed-rate or variable-rate plan in The Woodlands, you can find it through SaveOnEnergy. Our marketplace also offers other types of plans, including green energy and no-deposit plans, to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Not sure what you need? Check out our guide to picking a plan, or give us a call at the number on your screen to speak with one of our energy experts.

Fixed-rate plans in The Woodlands

When you sign up for a fixed-rate plan, you’re entering into a contract with your provider (which typically lasts a year or longer). Under this type of plan, you’re entitled to a fixed electricity rate, which is great if you’re concerned about fluctuating electricity prices. On the downside, you might need to pay an early termination fee (ETF) if you end your service before the contract is up.

Variable-rate plans in The Woodlands

Variable-rate plans are also common, but they don’t require you to sign a long-term contract. Instead, you’ll be on a month-to-month plan, which is worth considering if you don’t want a lengthy commitment. However, your electricity rate is likely to rise and fall depending on demand since it isn’t locked in.

Green electricity in The Woodlands

When it comes to green energy in the United States, Texas is leading the way. Not only does the Lone Star State produce the most electricity from wind, but it also generates an impressive amount of solar energy as well.

By default, all Texas electricity plans include a portion of renewable energy. The exact amount is listed in your plan’s Electricity Facts Label (EFL). If you’re committed to going green, you can find plenty of 100 percent renewable plans from some of the most well-known providers in the state. Alternatively, you can choose a specialty provider (including Gexa Energy or Green Mountain Energy) that only sells all-green plans.
