Energy competition in Houston, Texas

Since 2002, homes and businesses in Houston have had the power to choose which electricity provider will power their lives. Texas electricity customers have used this power to shop for electricity to meet their needs and their values. For us, the power of consumer choice means that we can take meaningful action to change the way electricity is made and help make tomorrow cleaner and greener.

How Texas electricity providers get power to your home

In any given area in Texas, the Transmission and Distribution Service Provider (TDSP) owns, operates and maintains the region’s poles and wires. They’re also the ones who read your meter every billing cycle and respond to power outages when they occur. No matter which energy company in Houston you choose, you’ll always have the same TDSP.

In Houston and the surrounding areas — including Spring, Cypress, Galveston, Pasadena and Richmond — your TDSP is CenterPoint Energy.
