Affordable Houston Electricity

by Donny on January 26, 2011

Houston’s population of about 2.3 million people makes it the largest city in Texas and the fourth-largest city in the United States behind New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. The Houston surrounding area has about six million people.

Texas, and more specifically, the Houston area, is big on energy fields. It’s home to some of the world’s largest oil and power refineries.

Even the city’s sports teams are a perfect picture of how big parts energy plays.

The Houston Astros play in Minute Maid Park, what used to be known as “Enron Field” before Enron went bankrupt.

The Houston Texans play in Reliant Stadium, which is sponsored by the famous company, Reliant Energy.

Houston has rich history that includes becoming a deregulated state in 2001.

The city was named after former general Sam Houston who led the Battle of San Jacinto. He eventually became the governor of Texas.

Prior to that, CenterPoint Energy was the primary energy provider in the area as residents and business owners had no say when it came to choosing electricity.

Now, 10 years later, if you’re in the Houston area, or another deregulated area in the state, you can shop for a new provider and compare the rates of different energy companies by typing your zip code into our compare box and choosing the most affordable electricity rates in your area.

Of course, Houston is also home to NASA and several major colleges and universities.
