It has been 10 years since electric choice came to Houston. During those 10 years, the web has changed -- and improved -- how we shop for everything. Clear pricing, filters, search preferences, and recommendations are not fancy features, but basic expectations.
Now, CenterPoint Energy makes shopping for electricity as easy as anything else you buy online. We call it TrueCost
Electricity prices are advertised for an average user. If you've ever looked at the complex fees and charges on your bill, you know it's more complicated than the price you see on the billboard. TrueCost uses your home's past usage to estimate your monthly cost.
Before you buy something, you can see the fine print and check references from other customers. TrueCost collects reviews from other users and takes fee disclosure to a new level. And because CenterPoint Energy doesn't sell electricity, or own any of the companies that do, we'll give you the straight facts about your options.
You want to enter information once and have it stored securely for future use, just like you do on popular shopping sites. TrueCost does that.
TrueCost makes it easy to switch electric plans. When your contract is up, we'll let you know and will show you some of the best options for your next contract.
We believe TrueCost is the future of electricity shopping. Try it now
