The reason rates in Houston are considered the best usually boils down to one factor which is point 1 in the list below.
- Secondly, people want a Houston energy company that is consistent with that price. They don’t want the price to look good when they sign up and then change later on.

But what about finding the best residential electric rate?
For residential there is only one sure fire way to keep your electric rate the best. You want to lock into a “fixed rate” contract. I would contract for at least a year and if it makes sense do it for 3 – 5 years.
There are dips in the energy market prices from time to time. Historically a good significant dip in the market is a great time to lock into a long term fixed electric rate.
Our website compares electric rates so you should be able to find the residential price and contract term that suits you best. We have a variety of energy brands to choose from and each of these offer a unique aspect to their brand that may sway you over to them beyond just going with the cheapest company.

Are there any other considerations when finding the best rate?
Some providers donate to valuable causes like Veterans or helping dogs. If you have a passion for a particular humanitarian effort there is likely an electric provider giving to that cause.
We here at ElectricRates.com give a portion of our profits to domestic abuse and child abuse prevention organizations. If you use our services you will be uniting with us in this fight. Thank you for considering us when shopping for your electric service.
