If you are moving or just looking to cut electricity cost you should always look around to see what is available. Finding the lowest Houston energy rates is not just about comparing price. Providers will hide fees and charges to make their offers better than they really are.

I know lots of you out there have no clue what to look for to see if you are getting a good deal or not from a electric company. The easiest way to check is to ask. If a supplier lies to you about the fees and charges you are going to be charged you should report them to the Public Utility Commission of Texas.

You can also check what customers are saying about energy companies in your area. Word of warning; most people on the internet will just put whatever they think will get a reaction from others. Saying an energy company is great will not get the same reaction as saying it is horrible.

My best suggestion is using the compare chart on this website. Just type in your zip code and click compare to get the latest rates. You can navigate through the tabs to find the cheapest electricity in Houston.

You can also call 1-800-971-4020.

Comparing; why it’s like Eating Broccoli

by Donny on November 21, 2012

Comparing why it is like eating broccoliDo you remember your mom telling you “eat your broccoli, it’s good for you.” Comparing things, like energy providers, is very similar to your mom telling you to eat your broccoli. You may look at the other pieces of food on your plate thinking “but I like chicken.”

Similarly, you may think “but I like so and so.” Brand loyalty is a good thing but don’t you think $20 this month is better than staying with your favorite company. Granted price is not the only thing you are comparing. Term length, price, and percentage of renewable energy are also several things you want to compare. A company that does not hide fees and charges and has a good reputation with its customers is what you are looking for. Comparing electric companies is good for you too.

You will be so happy after you use our comparison tool just like you when you finish eating your broccoli.

Your zip code is your fork and our chart is the broccoli. All you need to do is type your zip and click compare. You will see several delicious rates from providers in your area.

Broccoli may better for you than comparing energy companies but I recommend comparing. Broccoli will be there tomorrow.
