Frequently Asked Questions About Houston, Texas Energy

What is the difference between a Utility and an Energy Provider?

Utilities are the entities in charge of the operation and maintenance of the energy infrastructure, like wires and towers. The local utility in Houston is responsible for transporting electricity from the generators to residential homes and businesses in this specific region.

Energy providers in Houston like TXU Energy and Cirro Energy are the competitive energy retailers. In Texas, these companies are called Retail Electric Providers (REPs).

Types of Energy Plans offered in Houston

Energy suppliers offer two different types of plans for residential and business customers: a fixed-rate plan or a variable-rate plan.

Fixed-Rate Electricity Plans in Houston

Fixed-rate – meaning that the rate will remain constant for the term of the contract. Regardless of weather, natural events like tornados, or market volatility, your rate will not change. In most cases, a fixed-rate plan will have a term length of 6, 12, 24, or 36 months.

Variable-Rate Electricity Plans Houston

Variable rate plans may change on a monthly basis based on market factors. Variable-rate plans offer more flexibility but also present more volatility in pricing which may impact your monthly electricity bill.

In almost every case, EnergyBot recommends a fixed-rate plan. If you are unsure on what plan is right for your feel free to contact us.
