Electric Price Trends
CenterPoint Energy Service Area

When it comes to shopping, better information means better decisions. 
That's why we created the CenterPoint Energy Electric Price Index. The Index analyzes a broad range of plans available to Texas residential customers with electric choice and tracks weekly price changes in six-month, one-year and two-year fixed-rate electricity plans. This allows you to:
  • Compare the current average prices of typical fixed-rate products
  • Monitor price movements throughout the year
  • Review summaries of how we perceive market conditions, and more importantly, how they could affect your buying decisions.
Average monthly costs as shown are based on a customer who uses 12,000 kilowatt-hours per year. See "About the Index" in the right column to learn more about how the Index is calculated.
