Get to know energy choice in The Woodlands

Located 28 miles north of Houston, The Woodlands is home to an estimated 116,278 people. The town’s original development plan included many planning and design concepts that inspired other communities such as Columbia, Maryland and Reston, Virginia. In addition to its master planning, the town also offers some residents the power to choose their electricity provider.

Texas energy deregulation made The Woodlands electricity rates more competitive, but also made them more confusing. Atlas helps you get to the right energy plan, by using the information you provide to make sure you’re getting a good deal for the long term – all at no cost to you.

Your map to The Woodlands utilities and providers

In The Woodlands, an electric utility company delivers energy to your home and restores power outages, but they do not sell energy. Consumers do not get to choose their utility company. In the Woodlands, residents are split between utilities CenterPoint Energy and Entergy. Only consumers in the CenterPoint Energy sections of town have the power to choose.

  • Customers: 2.5+ million
  • Areas served: Greater Houston metropolitan area
  • Outages: Call 1-713-207-2222 or visit the outage center

How Atlas compares The Woodlands electric plans

There are many types of electricity plans that The Woodlands residents can choose from. Atlas works with providers to make sure the plans we’re recommending avoid common challenges to Texas energy, such as these:

  • If you don't carefully consider your energy plan you could be putting yourself at risk. In August 2019 the average Texas household used nearly 1,700 kWh of electricity. Because electricity rates are always changing, and only some plans protect from these changes, some Texans saw skyrocketing bills.
  • On average Texans paid $196 for their August 2019 electricity usage, but in April that year average electricity costs were only $95.
  • Under some energy plans you'll pay less for 1,000 kWh than you would for 999 kWh.

When you shop with Atlas, we’ll make sure you’re not falling into any of these traps. We’ll use the information you give us to show you plans that work all year under various conditions. When you sign up for a free Atlas account, we’ll keep checking and let you know if we find a better option.

Why Atlas is different

Our algorithm takes your information and tests it against all the plans in our marketplace. It looks at the big picture so we can give you the best options for now and later. We’ll show you your savings throughout the year so you can see for yourself.

The more information you give us, the better results we can offer, but we’ll never force your hand. We're happy to work with whatever you're comfortable sharing and will do our best to find you the right plan.
