I’m buying a house in Houston and was wondering what’s the best electricity company to sign with. Any ideas?

I’ve read the Terms of Service, price per Kw/h, etc., and some give more at the beginning, while others are cheaper in the long term. Who do you think is the best electricity provider in Houston? How long did it take for you to get your power back on after Hurricane Ike?

    The only way you should decide which provider to choose is through the http://www.powertochoose.org website. It is a site created by the Public Utility Commission after they deregulated the industry and finally gave us the right to choose our providers. It compares the current rates for every provider. Just click the ‘Go Directly To Rates’ and put in your zip code. Just make sure you are only looking at Fixed rates. I also wouldn’t take a term of less than a year. Then just set a reminder for a year from now to switch again.

    As for power after Ike. I was without for over two weeks, but that shouldn’t be a factor in choosing your provider. ‘Providers’ are just resellers of power. They don’t own the lines and they aren’t the ones who fix the problems. That is all CenterPoint.
