Texas’s deregulated energy market allows customers to select the electricity provider of their choice, as well as the ability to change service providers at any time. In Sugar Land, CenterPoint Energy provides and maintains the electric infrastructure for each electric distributor, enabling businesses and residents within the city limits access to the power grid with affordable rates.
CenterPoint Energy also provides natural gas to Sugar Land. Large industrial consumers have other options for purchasing gas, including long-term contracts with rates varying on specific factors.

Sugar Land Public Utilities
When it comes to digitally connecting with the world, Sugar Land’s fiber optic network makes DSL high speed bandwidth and the option for high-speed internet service via cable more accessible than ever.
Sugar Land city services can thrive due to the city’s unique location off major Interstate 69/U.S. Highway 59 and 90 and State Highway 6. Sugar Land has the infrastructure needed to transport goods throughout Texas and across the United States, as well as around the world.
With its close proximity to Houston’s I-10, I-45, and U.S Highway 290, Sugar Land is connected to other large Texas cities, including the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, San Antonio, and Austin, as well as other major cities across the United States.
The Port of Houston, located on the East side of Houston Loop 610, is a short 30 miles from the heart of Sugar Land, and Port Freeport is a little over an hour’s drive, easily accessible via State Highway 6 to State Highway 288, which runs directly to the port.
