Listed towards the bottom of the page is some contact information for area utility providers. 


Regardless of whether you are moving into an apartment, condo or townhouse, you will generally need to hook up some utilities. In most apartments and townhome communities, you will be required to pay for electric power and, in some, water and / or gas. Generally, those that are "all bills paid" are either older apartment communities or corporate apartments. "All bills paid" apartments pay for basic utilities such as electricity and water. A corporate apartment may provide everything including telephone and furniture. 

Area utilities have certain requirements for establishing service, including address of former provider, employment information, driver's license number, Social Security number and phone numbers.

The power utilities in Texas are in the process of being deregulated. Sometime in 2002, consumers will have many choices for  their electric provider.
