5 Things to Know Before You Order Pharr Electricity Service

  1. Know your usage. Ok you don't have to "know" but you should have an idea. Are you moving into an apartment/small house, a medium size home or condo, or a large home? Home size matters and relates to the average usage. Electricity rates are based on volume and are based on 500kWh, 1000kWh and 2000kWh use per month. In other words a small house or apartment customer will generally pay a higher rate than a high usage / large house customer.
  2. Know your credit score. Do you have great, average or poor credit? If you have average or poor credit you'll probably be asked to pay a deposit - generally $150-$300. You can also use a no-deposit plan that you pre-pay.
  3. Understand Utility Charges. Centerpoint Energy is the local electricity utility company in Pharr. They own and maintain the poles and wires, read the meters and get your power back on when there's a storm or power loss. About 30-40% of your bill is made up of Centerpoint Energy fees.
  4. All rates displayed on our site include Centerpoint Energy Utility Charges and Fees.
  5. Understand Your Electricity Facts Label (EFL) The EFL sets out the rates and charges based on usages of 500, 1000 and 2000kWh.
