All of the Electricity Plans Have an EFL – Are They Important?
The language Kingwood electric companies use to market their electricity plans can be incomplete. But the Electricity Facts Label (EFL) is supposed to clarify for the consumer precisely what is included in an electric plan including rates and any potential fees or costs associated with that plan.
Mostly, electricity providers in Kingwood are given the leeway to innovate to create electricity plans with many different pricing structures. The EFL is a standardized document mandated by the PUC. It is meant to give shoppers a way to compare electricity plans in a common format.
Items listed in EFLs include:
• Average electricity rates for 500, 1000, and 2000 kWhs
• Per kWh costs
• Cancelation Fees
• Flat fees
• Length of Contract
• Percentage of renewable energy included with the plan
• Descriptive language to clarify how electricity rates for the plan are calculated.
• TDU passthrough fees
You will find a link to the EFL for every plan listed on Vault Electricity. Often the rates that are marketed to the public don’t reflect what your actual rates may be. You should always review the EFL before you decide on an electric plan.
There is so Much More to Learn About Kingwood, Texas Than Just How to Compare Electricity Rates
This city is the second largest master-planned community within the Houston-Woodlands-Sugar Land metropolitan area. Most of it lies within Harris County, but some falls within Montgomery County as well, relatively close to the Gulf Coast. Last checked, the population was about 47,000. The city is a relatively recent development which started in 1970 as a partnership between Friendswood and King Ranch. The juxtaposition of those other two communities lend the name “Kingwood”. The boxer George Foreman lived in the community for some time, and actually, he still owns property in the area.
Historically, most of the land that would become Kingwood was owned by the Foster Lumber Company. Eventually it was sold in 1967 to the Friendswood and King Ranch partnership. After hiring John Bruton Jr (an Exxon developer), all of the pieces were in place for the rapid expansion of the planned community. The city was founded in 1970, but later annexed by Houston (much to the chagrin of the residents who fought the annexation).
Currently, the community is in great shape. The area is safe, educational attainment is high (about 54% have college degrees and 27% some college experience). And overall, the wages earned are pretty high across the board.

They are one of the largest oil and gas producers, a top three refiner, an electricity provider, and an operator of thousands of gas stations across the nation. Headquartered in Houston, they have many large power plants and technology facilities in the area.
