CenterPoint Energy Rates and Supply Rates

So what's the difference between your CenterPoint Energy rates and what you'll get from an energy provider? Utility companies are responsible for delivering your energy, checking your meters and maintaining power lines and infrastructure. Energy providers work with energy generation companies to purchase the actual energy supply and then pass that on to you through innovative energy rates.

In a regulated market, CenterPoint Energy rates would be passed on to you directly from the energy generation company. Your rates would follow market pricing only. In a deregulated market, you have the opportunity to shop among several energy suppliers, all negotiating with power generation companies and all competing for your business. So while you'll always get your service, delivery and power line maintenance from CenterPoint Energy, rates in Texas will come from the energy supplier you select.

Shopping around for a better plan with energy providers may help you find something that fits your budget. With sites like this, you've got the opportunity to compare companies, shop for competing offers and potentially find a plan that meets your needs. You also inspire competition, which inspires energy providers to offer rewards, innovative rate plans, green energy and more. So whether you get service from CenterPoint Energy in Spring or not, what you should focus on is energy suppliers. When these companies have to compete for your business, the marketplace becomes more competitive, and consumers like you win!
