Utility Company: When Building a New Home in West Columbia & for Regulated Zones

To activate service for a brand new home with Centerpoint Energy West Columbia (and to find out if your location is regulated or not), simply call customer service at 800-427-7142 and have the following information handy (depending on construction status and/or if the area is regulated):

  • Your full name and contact details (phone, email, SSN, possibly Driver´s License number)
  • New address to activate service (if unknown, address of nearby property)
  • Service start date
  • Load details
  • Site plan
  • Construction timeline

Regulated or Deregulated? For regulated zones, all residents setting up electricity will work exclusively with the Utility Company in the area. However, for the majority of residents, the section below lays out the next steps in setting up electricity for deregulated zones.

Electricity Service in West Columbia and Deregulated Areas: Who & How

For homeowners setting up electricity to a newly constructed home in a deregulated zone, the utility service legwork is just the first half of the task (above). Residing in a deregulated zone, all homeowners and renters across the board (just moved-in and lifelong) can actually choose a preferred Retail Energy Provider (REP)!

Deciding which can seem like a daunting task but we are here to help. A great place to begin is the below list of 10 well-known providers or check out the full list of Retail Electric Providers. When you have chosen the provider that best suits your needs and interests, opening an account is pretty straightforward.

Simply call your favorite REP and give them the following:

  • Your full name and contact information (phone number, email, a temporary address if applicable)
  • The date you require service (in other words, the date you move in)

Many REPs require a security deposit to activate accounts for new customers, so you may also be asked for your Social Security Number (SSN) in order for a credit check to be performed.
