Get to know energy choice in Pasadena

With a population of just over 150,000, Pasadena is the second-largest city in Harris County, Texas, a little to the southeast of Houston. New families and career professionals love the proximity to downtown Houston, which can be reached in about 20 minutes.The area’s largest employers are school districts, construction companies, and the Boeing Company. In short, Pasadena requires reliable energy.

Like most communities in Texas, Pasadena has a deregulated electricity market, meaning residents have the power to choose their energy provider. Atlas was created to make this choice easier, by creating a personalized roadmap between you and your electricity plan.

Your map to Pasadena utilities and providers

Pasadena’s electric utility company is CenterPoint Energy. This means CenterPoint is the company that delivers electricity to your home, maintains power lines, and handles outages.

  • Customers: 2.5+ million
  • Areas served: Houston metropolitan area
  • Outages: Call 800-332-7143 or report outages online.

While Texas residents cannot choose their utility company, they can choose between many retail electric providers (REPs), who sell many types of electric plans. Atlas will help you determine which is right for you. Energy companies in Pasadena include:

How Atlas compares Pasadena electric plans

Texas energy plans can be complicated. Providers display electricity rates based on the number of kilowatt-hours (kWh) you use, but no one uses energy at exact levels. Going over or under could easily cost you. Before selecting any Texas energy provider plan, consider the following:

  • Prices change. The market is always in flux. While some plans are protected from this, some are not. That’s risky when you consider that the average Texan used 1,664 kWh of energy in August 2019.
  • The average Texas electricity bill in April of 2019 was $95. In the heat of summer, though, it was $196. That’s a big difference.
  • Note that some Texas energy providers offer bill credits for reaching a certain usage. You could end up paying more for using 999 kWh than if you use 1,000 kWh.
