Electricity Rates and Local Politics in Houston

by · March 28, 2012

Fans of local politics might want to check out the fireworks at a recent Houston  city council meeting in a debate over an electricity rate increase.   An electric provider in Houston, Entergy Corporation, is proposing a 13% rate increase for a small number of Houston residents who fall within Entergy’s service area.  Unlike most Houston residents,  these roughly 1,500 customers don’t have the option to switch providers because they fall under the Entergy service area which isn’t open to competition.


Houston electricity rates have fallen over the past several years for customers who are in deregulated areas and are able to compare Houston electric providers and chose the best deals.
