Compare electricity plans in Kingwood, Texas
Kingwood, Texas, is a 14,000-acre master-planned community in Harris County, in northeast Houston. Known as the “Livable Forest” for its heavily wooded acreage of mostly tall pine trees and magnolias, this quasi-self-contained community of 25 neighborhoods has all the creature comforts of a large city, while providing the intimacy that comes with living in smaller suburban neighborhoods. Kingwood, with a population of 65,000, was built to coalesce with nature (there are more than 75 miles of hiking and biking trails throughout the community), but its offerings also include dozens of retail and shopping outlets, two private clubs, 100 organizations, and a host of dining options. A majority of Kingwood’s residents work in neighboring Houston, about 30 miles away.
Average temperature and electricity use in Kingwood, Texas
The average temperature in Kingwood can be higher than 90°F on summer days, and the nights rarely get below 70°F. That’s why more than 80% of Texans have central air conditioning in their homes, which accounts for almost 20% of electricity use in Texas, far above the national average of 6%. The heat is why lots of people love to live here, but the average annual electricity cost per Texas household is among the highest in the U.S. at over $1,800 per year—26% higher than the national average. So, because such a large number of Texas homes are equipped with air conditioning, you’re likely to want to compare electricity rates so that you can live comfortably while paying the lowest possible rate that retail electric providers for Kingwood, Texas, can offer.
