Affordable Energy in Katy, Texas

by Donny on January 31, 2011

Three different counties, Ford Bend, Harris and Waller all claim Katy, Texas as their own.

Right on the outskirts of Houston, Katy is one of the fastest growing cities in the state, and currently holds a population of about 12,000 people.

It’s location near Houston (the fourth largest city in the United States) as well as Galveston is an added benefit.

Another benefit to living in Katy is the luxury of being able to choose an energy provider and its rates for a commercial business or residents.

Texas is among just a few states to have become deregulated which means Katy residents, as well as other residents in deregulated areas of Texas have the right and the ability to choose the most affordable electric rates in the area.

There’s no need to settle with a company just because that’s the only one in your area when you can shop, compare and choose the best rates for your situation simply by typing your zip code into our compare box.

Apart from the freedom to choose a provider, Katy has a rich history.

In 1875, Thomas and Mary Robinson’s family was the only family to reside in Katy’s current location, and the area was a long way from being fully developed.

The Robinsons arrived just a few short years prior as they owned 200 acres of land on the Cane Island branch of the Buffalo Bayou, and eventually others caught on and more people moved to the location because of its good farm land and its location near the Missouri-Kansas-Texas railroad.

Nearly two and a half decades later, Katy was named one of the nine “9 from 2009” most notable high growth areas in the country.
Locals split the town into two cities known as “Old Katy” and “Katy Area.”

Old Katy refers city limits, north of I-10, and is the more historical part of the town.

Katy Area refers the newer development and less traditional areas.
