Why is my Katy energy bill so high?

To avoid signing up for a gimmicky energy plan, use HomeEnergyClub.com to make a side-by-side comparisons of vetted plans. Your energy bill might be high for one of the following common reasons:

  • Increased rates: If you’re on a variable rate plan, your provider can increase your rates. We recommend sticking with fixed, locked rates.
  • Fixed-price plan expiration: When fixed-rate plans expire, your costs can increase. Know the end date for your plan so that you renew or switch plans before your current expiration date, so you don’t get charged an unnecessarily high rate.
  • Seasonal changes: Without a fixed-rate plan, your energy cost may increase during high-demand times, such as during the summer or during winter freezes.
  • Efficiency issues: If your home isn’t adequately insulated and sealed, your energy bills could be unnecessarily high.
  • Your energy usage doesn’t fit your plan: Every energy plan works for certain energy usage levels. For example, if you live in a small apartment but choose a plan for a large home, your electric bill may be surprisingly high.

Thank you for giving us your information so that we
can send you our best rates when you need them.

We will soon send you a link to our Savvy Shopper's Guide. It includes:


You should always read a plan’s EFL details to decide if it’s a fit for you, but our system does the tedious math to help you compare estimated costs. Of course, your future bill amounts will depend on your future usage.

You will find a widget on Home Energy Club which fetches your home’s energy usage data from Smart Meter Texas (SMT) and runs calculations of the rate structures of energy plans to help you conveniently estimate the cost of energy plans you are considering, based on your prior 12 months of energy usage as reported by SMT.

In one of the text panels of the widget, you will see an authorization button. By checking the permission box above the fields in which you enter your name and email address, and clicking on the authorization button, you are authorizing Smart Meter Texas to provide us with your location’s energy usage information so that our system can run cost calculations. It’s important to note that errors can occur when developing and running calculations, and the Company does not guarantee that its cost numbers are correct. You should always read the Electricity Facts Label (EFL) for each energy plan you are considering before enrolling, and make an independent decision on whether the plan is an appropriate fit for your home based on your own calculations and all the information disclosed by energy providers in the EFL.
