gas choice

In Houston the ability to compare electricity rates is available by simply typing in your zip code and clicking on a compare button.

Please click here: Texas commercial electricity, to learn more about our reverse auction for Houston businesses needing to find the cheapest Houston electricity rate with a reputable Houston or Harris County commercial electricity company.


There are over 30 retail electric providers in Houston TX and many of these companies offer both fixed and variable electric rate plans.


We recommend choosing a fixed electric rate but whatever it is you do it is important to use a comparison chart that takes the time to bundle in all fees and charges.


Residential Houston electricity rates are available right on this site with all fees included while our commercial compare process involves a more in-depth reverse auction process.

Compare the cheapest Discount Houston Texas Electric Companies

No Deposit Houston Electric Companies

After signing up with one of the above Houston electricity providers, they will let you know immediately whether you have been approved and if a deposit will be needed. Deposits are handled on a case by case basis after checking your credit. Some providers will pass you on credit more easily than another electric company. The best way to see if you will need to pay a deposit is to attempt to sign up. At this time Bounce Energy and Affordable Energy have a more lenient credit and deposit requirement than the other providers in the list.


After Comparing Which Plan Is Right?

There is no one right electricity rate and plan as everyone is facing a different situation. If you will be in your residence for a long time and residential electricity rates are historically low it makes sense to sign up on a long term fixed rate. Even if you will pay a premium for a longer term rate you will save money if electricity rates are near their lows. The next year electricity prices in Houston could go up and so by locking in at a low you are buying insurance. For others a short term electricity contract lets them try before they truly commit without worrying that they will have to pay an early termination penalty if they cancel.
