Energy Price Trends in Katy

Katy boasts a deregulated energy market, offering residents the freedom to select from multiple Katy energy providers instead of being limited to a single regional option. This deregulation fosters competition among providers, resulting in competitive pricing, and empowering residents to choose the best-suited energy plans for their homes and budget requirements. If you are seeking the most cost-effective energy rate for your household, Home Energy Club enables you to compare the top Katy energy providers and their plans.

Average Electricity Rates in Katy

The average residential energy rate in Texas is 14.19 ¢/kWh. The national average is 16.11 ¢/kWh, about 12% higher than the Texas average.

Centerpoint Energy’s Move-in, Move-out, and Transfer

Centerpoint Energy functions as the transmission and distribution utility (TDU) for the Katy area, taking charge of power outages and electricity delivery to properties. While you have the freedom to choose your preferred electricity provider, Centerpoint Energy handles these essential services.

Learn more about rates, power outage information, and move-in instructions below.

Residential Electricity Service in Katy

For those relocating to Katy, a variety of residential electricity companies in Katy are available to cater to your area. Prominent providers include Cirro Energy, TXU Energy, and Reliant Energy. Utilize Home Energy Club to efficiently compare different rates in your vicinity and, once you find a plan aligning with your budget, you can request Centerpoint Energy to begin delivering electricity on your chosen start date.

Move-in, Move-out, and Transfer Service

If you intend to move into or out of Katy, you can simply request your current electricity provider to halt your current plan. If you are moving out of the area but still have a long-term plan, you can cancel the service without incurring an early termination fee.

If your current provider also serves your new city, you have the option to transfer your service. Before making the transfer, it’s recommended to use Home Energy Club to compare rates and secure the most affordable rate for your new zip code.

Switching Electricity Providers

Alternatively, you may decide to switch energy providers. In this case, your new electricity company will assist you in transitioning from your old contract to the new one. However, it’s essential to be cautious of early termination fees (ETFs) if you are switching plans for your current home before the contract end date.

The Electricity Facts Label (EFL) associated with each plan discloses the fee for early cancellation. To determine if it’s advantageous to switch, you’ll need to calculate whether the potential savings from a lower rate outweigh the ETF.

By waiting until 14 days before your current contract expires, you can avoid the early termination fee. Additionally, you can often enroll in a plan weeks or months ahead of the start date to lock in the advertised rate at that time.

For more helpful information on moving to Texas or switching providers see our Electricity Shopping Guide.

No-Deposit Electricity Plans in Katy

No-deposit electricity plans are prepaid energy arrangements designed to provide electricity access to individuals without the need for upfront deposits, credit checks, or long-term contracts. Here are some key facts about these prepaid plans:

  • Pay-As-You-Go: No deposit electricity plans operate on a pay-as-you-go basis, allowing users to pay for electricity as they consume it.
  • Monthly Rate Variability: Rates for these plans may vary from month to month based on energy consumption.
  • Flexible Cancellation: Users can typically cancel these plans at any time without incurring termination fees.
  • Higher-Than-Average Rates: Due to the absence of upfront deposits and credit risks, these prepaid plans often come with higher rates than standard options.
  • Beware of Gimmicks: Some websites offering prepaid plans may employ gimmicks that lead to surprising fluctuations in billing. It’s essential to be cautious and choose reputable providers to avoid such issues.

Deposit Waivers

Certain government regulations or electric provider policies might grant you a deposit waiver if you can provide specific documents, such as:

  • Letter of Credit: A “letter of credit” from your most recent energy provider, confirming twelve consecutive months of payment history with no more than one late payment.
  • Low Income: A letter certifying your low-income status from a governmental entity.
  • Military Veteran: A government-issued military ID for active duty and reservists.
  • Age 65 or older: A state-issued ID card, U.S. driver’s license, or passport.
  • Medical Indigent: A letter from a government agency certifying your medical indigent status.
  • Victim of Family Violence: Certification letter from the Texas Council on Family Violence or relevant government agency.

On Home Energy Club, our cost calculator widget helps you to choose an energy plan by performing detailed calculations so you can quickly compare estimated plan costs based on your historic usage data and publicly-available data. Your actual future bill amounts will depend on your future energy usage, which cannot be precisely determined, so the accuracy of plan cost data cannot be guaranteed. You should always read the details of an energy plan’s Electricity Facts Label (EFL) to decide if it’s a fit for your home.
