Tomball Power Switch

Tomball Power Switch

The City of Tomball has partnered with iChoosr to help our residents save money on their electric bills with the Tomball Power Switch program.

Your electric bill may be one of your the biggest monthly expenses. A lower fixed rate can help reduce your bills year round. The City of Tomball is committed to helping you save on your electric bills, which is why we launched the Tomball Power Switch.  

What is the Tomball Power Switch? 

Even though 85% of Texans have a choice in energy providers, most haven’t made a change in the past three years and are overpaying for their electricity. 

The Tomball Power Switch is an energy switching program that gives you and other residents the opportunity to join together and get a lower rate on electricity by asking energy providers to bid on your business.  There is no cost for this service, and the City does not receive any benefits from this partnership – this is a program exclusively designed to help our residents save money.

How much could I save?

Tomball residents who switch are expected to save an average of almost $400 per year on their energy bills, just by signing up and accepting the winning provider’s offer. The more people that participate, the greater the chances are of obtaining a competitive energy rate. Please keep in mind, there’s no fee to participate or obligation to switch. If you are currently in a contract from a previous Power Switch, please disregard this notification and we hope you’re enjoying your savings.

How does it work?

We’ll form a group together with many other Tomball residents and organize an electricity auction among electricity providers.  They will bid for our business and the lowest rate wins.

After the auction, we’ll send every registrant a Personal Offer, letting you know how much you could save with the winning rate. After you receive your Personal Offer, it is completely up to you to decide if you want to accept it or not. There is no obligation.

How do I sign up?

Have an electricity bill available and visit before January 27, 2020 to register.  It’s totally free, easy to do and will only take you 5 minutes. 

You can also call 888-376-2077 from 8am to 10pm (Monday to Saturday) or send an email to if you have any questions.

Please note: Households in areas served by a member-owned electricity cooperative or a municipal-owned utility are not eligible to participate. Also, there is no cost to the City to offer this service, nor does the City receive any financial benefit.
