Why We Love Houston

Bayou City, Space City, H-Town or the 713. Regardless of what you call Houston, there’s no denying it’s one of the largest cities in the country. Home to world-class sports teams, outstanding restaurants, leading companies and hospital systems and, most importantly, you, Houston is a fantastic place to call your own. Founded on August 30, 1836, near the banks of Buffalo Bayou, present-day Houston is the most ethnically diverse metropolitan area in the country. More than 145 languages are spoken here, and 90 nations have consular representation in the city. Truly global, Houston proves that there are many ways to be Texan.

    Yes, Houston is one of the many communities in the Lone Star State that is deregulated. Instead of having the generation, delivery and access to electricity controlled by one entity, you can choose the best electricity plan from one of many power companies in the Houston area.
