Real Houston power to choose: Texas Electricity Ratings

Texas Electricity Ratings ranks companies based on multiple independent data sources, including: customer reviews, kilowatt-per-hour rates, Public Utility Commission of Texas complaint statistics, JD Power & Associates ratings and company standings with the Better Business Bureau. We also take into account individual plan types, standard features offered by each electricity provider, customer reward and incentive programs, customer service wait times and more.

To make sure you get a great utility provider AND a great rate, we've reviewed hundreds of electricity plans and combined them with our ratings, so you can quickly compare both price and quality at the same time in the Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth metro areas. Not in the big cities? No problem, we have rates for many other Texas cities as well!
