Whether you use 500 kWh, 1000 kWh, 2000 kWh or something in between, you can find the best rates. Enter your average electricity usage to see what you will pay!

Moving to Katy Texas – Set Up Utilities
Katy is a growing suburb of Houston. Many people move to Katy each year, or move within Katy for different school districts or a different home.
If you are moving within Katy or moving from another area of Houston, you can easily transfer your electricity service to your new home. There’s no need to shop for a new electricity plan (unless current prices are lower than what you have.) You can request a “transfer of service” for your power. Just call your energy provider or go online.
If you are moving to Katy from out of the area, you’ll need to pick an electricity provider. Centerpoint Energy will delivery power to your home as the local utility in your area. But the energy provider will provide your electricity.
Follow the steps above to find the best electricity rate for your home. You may be able to ask the prior owner or landlord for the historical electricity usage or average usage for the home. If you can’t get that information, here are some assumptions you can use when you’re comparing energy rates:
- If you have a 1 bedroom apartment, you’ll use around 500 kWh a month.
- If you have a 2 bedroom apartment, use 1000 kWh a month when shopping for rates.
- And the average electricity bill for a typical Texas home is 1200 kWh a month.
During enrollment, select that you are moving in to a new home, called a “move-in” and pick the date you want service.
You can schedule your electricity to start up to 60 days out. But if you forget? You can get same day electricity in Katy.
Katy Texas is divided by three different county lines: Harris County, Fort Bend County and Waller County. Some areas are part of Unincorporated Katy, others are within City of Katy. All areas of Katy have electricity choice and the power to choose.
Switching Electricity Providers in Katy
There are two things that we’ve seen over the years regarding electricity shopping:
First, most electricity companies do not reward loyalty. They give their best rates to new customers.
Second, the highest rate you’ll pay for your electricity bill is when you forget to shop for a new electricity plan!
Our point to this is, shop for your contract every time it expires.
You can take advantage of the lowest rates from each energy provider. And you will avoid paying an off-contract rate.
Switching is easy to do and takes less than 10 minutes to complete your enrollment. There’s no need to contact your old provider. Your new energy company takes care of everything!

No Deposit Electricity in Katy
Most electricity providers require a 600 credit score for no deposit electricity. That can be tough! And even worse, if you don’t have a good payment history, you can pay around $350 or more for a deposit!
You have options for no credit check and no deposit electricity plans. Payless Power gives you competitive rates plus you can get a 1 year contract.
Most prepaid no deposit electricity companies only offer month to month plans. With electricity prices increasing, it’s best to have a fixed rate plan.
Here are current rates for no credit check electricity:
|Payless Power 6 Month – Prepaid||6||15.6 ¢|
|Payless Power 12 Month – Prepaid||12||16.3 ¢|
