The Texas legislature approved energy deregulation in 2002 creating the path for competitive energy pricing and market. As a deregulated electricity market, state’s retail energy companies would need to compete - against each other - for the millions of Texas residential and business customers. The goal of a deregulated, or competitive energy market, is to give the power to choose to the consumer – which forced League City electricity providers to be more efficient and lower costs – and offer improved customer service and lower rates to their customers. Going forward, the home and business customers of energy suppliers would have the ability to switch to a new energy provider (at the end of each contract) to maintain the advantage of the deregulated market.
Texas has had a very healthy market in the new era of competition under energy deregulation. Residents and businesses can shop for electricity plans from a wide array of energy suppliers and shop for the best rate available. This means less money in the pockets of energy companies and more for you.
How do you get the best deal on an electricity plan? We analyzed and digested hundreds of thousands of data points from utilities and suppliers and determined the most basic action you can take is to be proactive.
Simply by shopping suppliers and rates 6 months before your plan is set to renew can help you save 20% or more on your energy costs. Furthermore we found that most customers, depending on market conditions and usage, are likely to save by switching electric suppliers every 12 to 24 months.
League City businesses can find big savings in the Texas energy market with just a little bit of due diligence. Since energy suppliers are forced to be more efficient, and offer business energy plans with competitive energy rates, it’s up to you to compare and find the best plan.
But finding the right plan can be difficult. In Texas, rates change by zip code. And with dozens of commercial energy suppliers, that means sifting through hundreds of plans.
This has made comparing energy plans confusing due to the sheer number of plans available, promotional rates that are not apples-to-apples and the legal fine print that details fees and penalties.
Commercial energy customers can maintain control over the process by reviewing their monthly usage and average monthly electricity bill.
If your average business electricity bill is less than $500 per month, then you can get a very good energy rate for your business through a simple online comparison of energy rates.
If your average commercial electricity bill is $500 or more per month, then you will most likely get a more competitive energy rate through a custom quote process. The custom process is exactly that – by providing basic business information, energy usage and submitting a recent electricity bill – EnergyBot can leverage partnerships with suppliers to work on your behalf and secure the best energy rate for your business. Although it will take more time to complete, the custom quote process may deliver a lower energy rate that will add up to big savings for your business.
For League City businesses, researching energy rates and switching to a new electricity plan can be a hassle. EnergyBot is built to make energy simple and help businesses find the best electricity rate quickly and easily.
Along with saving time, EnergyBot also helps businesses cut energy costs by 15% for two reasons.

Energy plans often have long confusing contracts. We don't like teaser rates and tricky terms, so we filter out the plans that trick customers into bill spikes. Each plan you see on our site has plan details. This breaks down the most important information about the plan into a way that is easy to understand.
Once you have decided on a new energy plan for your home business just follow the prompts to confirm. Once you're done, we give you dashboard to see the status of your contract.
League City energy providers offer rates and plans with a range of options and terms. While you will see many types of plans for the most part they are in two categories: fixed-rate and variable rate.
Fixed-rate plans will have a set price for the term of the contract. Regardless of weather, natural events, or market volatility, your rate will not change. In most cases, fixed-rate plans have a term length of 6, 12, 24, or 36 months. We recommend fixed-rate plans for most customers.
Variable-rate plan rates may change on a monthly basis based on market factors. Variable-rate plans offer more flexibility but present more volatility in pricing. Price changes may impact your monthly electricity bill in the form of price hikes. In most cases, we do not recommend variable-rate plans.
Known for its waterside resorts, League City is the largest city in Galveston County, Texas with a population of 106,244 residents. Located near Galveston Bay and within the Greater Houston metropolitan area, League City covers an expansive area of 53 square miles.
Recently, League City has seen a tremendous growth in population growing from just 45,444 residents in the 2000 census. This huge growth stemmed from increases in real estate prices and living costs within the City of Galveston forcing its residents to move away from that city to the surrounding areas, primarily League City. With this growth in population, the Clear Creek Independent School District which serves the residents of League City continues to request additional funding beyond what the State of Texas provides to accommodate this massive influx of students.
To accommodate this growing population, the Clear Creek Independent School District opened the Clear Springs High School in 2007 and the Clear Falls High School in 2010. Both of these high schools are located within League City and the main high school of the school district, Clear Creek High School, is also located within League City. The public library in League City is also the largest and busiest library of the Galveston County Library System.
