Setting up utilities after your move
You can talk with your homeowner’s association or your landlord to determine if there is a preferred electric provider for your area of Humble. However, you can choose any electric provider you which so long as it services your address. There is an ever-growing list of power companies that service the various parts of Houston that may be of interest to you. Some of these providers offer short term contract while others offer 100 percent renewable energy. Now may be time to learn more about the various types of rates offered by these companies, fixed rates, variable rates, indexed rates and wholesale.
CenterPoint energy sells natural gas to Houston area homes. This is one utility that will be easier to set up than others just because CenterPoint tends to be the most common choice. If you are moving to Houston from another area of the Southern United States, then you may be familiar with CenterPoint. You can check the side of your new home to monitor the gas usage and to determine your average rate of usage. This will help you pick a particular plan of service with CenterPoint.
Municipal Utility Districts (MUDs)
If you move into an area of Humble that is actually within the city limits of Houston, then you should contact the city in order to set up your water and trash accounts with the city. This is a simple thing to do. However, if you live outside of the city of Houston it is likely that you will live in a Municipal Utility District, or MUD. A MUD is a small governmental body inside of a larger governmental body that performs maintenance, makes improvements on wastewater infrastructure, and generally serves the community in terms of water and wastewater needs. You will have to find out what MUD serves your address and then contact the MUD to have the water turned on. Be sure to analyze your first bill and call the MUD with any questions about fees.
