Who is the Electric Utility in Pearland?
If you live in Pearland, you could be served by one of two different utilities.
Part of your city has Texas New Mexico Power (TNMP) as your utility. And Centerpoint Energy serves the other part of the city.
If you are shopping for electricity in zip codes 77584, 77581, 77583 or 77511, you could be served by TNMP or Centerpoint.
If you are shopping for electricity in 77053, 77047, 77545 or 77089, your utility is Centerpoint.
Regardless of where you live in Pearland, you have a choice in electricity companies that provide your electricity supply. And your utility, whether it’s TNMP or Centerpoint, will deliver that power to your home or business.
Here are 2 quick ways to find out who your utility is in Pearland
- Look at your current electricity bill. No matter who your current electricity provider is, you will find the utility name and emergency contact number on your bill.
- Use our ESID Lookup to find your utility. The ESID or Electricity Service Identifier is unique to your address. Just type in your address. We’ll tell you what utility you are in, plus a list of the cheapest electricity rates in your area.
The reality is, you will only need to contact your utility in the case of a power emergency or outage. For your billing, customer service or electricity move-in, you will work with an electricity provider. But you also need to know your utility for your home to shop for electricity plans. That’s why the ESID Lookup comes in handy.

How to Find the Best Electricity Rates in Pearland Texas
When you are looking for the best electricity plan in League City, you are usually looking for the lowest price per kWh. But here are 3 tips to finding the best electricity plans in your area.
- Watch out for fine print. Most low-priced electricity plans are tiered rate and bill credit plans. Read the details on these plans before you commit. If your usage is above or below the requirements, you’ll end up paying more than you expected.
- Know your usage. Most rates for electricity are shown at 500 kWh, 1000 kWh or 2000 kWh. But most homes in Texas use 1200 kWh a month. Use our Electricity Bill Calculator feature. Just enter your zip code, then enter your average monthly usage. We’ll automatically calculate your average price and estimated bill for every plan.
- Shop the right utility for your home. Delivery rates in Centerpoint are lower than TNMP delivery rates. That’s because TNMP sets their delivery rates based on their whole territory, which includes West Texas, North Texas and Coastal Texas. But there’s nothing you can do to change the utility you are in. So your best approach is to find the cheapest price per kWh for energy and delivery, and sign up.

Pearland Frequently Asked Questions
Pearland is located 24 miles south of Houston.
Pearland is mostly in Brazoria County. Parts of Pearland are in Ft. Bend County and Harris County.
Pearland was first named Mark Belt, when a post office was established in 1893. The name was changed to Pearland in November of that year because of the large number of pear trees in the area. But acording to the Pearland Historical Society, “the fruit which brough the most prosperity to Pearland was not the pear, but the fig.” Figs were a large cash crop for farmers in Pearland from the mid 1910 to the 40s.
Parts of Pearland are served by Texas New Mexico Power and parts are served by Centerpoint Energy. You can find your utility by looking up your ESID (Electricity Service Identifier) on ElectricityPlans.com.
