Direct Energy Rates vs Payless Power Rates

We're Here to Help

We have plans to support you and your energy needs

Direct Energy has provided electricity, natural gas and home and business energy-related services to over 4 million customers in Texas and North America from their Houston headquarters since they were acquired by Centrica plc in 2000. Through a variety of fixed and flexible energy plans, Direct Energy gives customers choice, simplicity, and innovation where energy, data and technology meet.

Direct Energy Rates vs Payless Power Rates

Direct Energy offers month-to-month, 12 month, 24 month and 36 month energy plans. Their average rate for their electricity plans is $0.116/kWh. This low average is driven by Direct Energy locking into their 24 and 36 month plans, which does not offer the flexibility that many customers need from their electricity plans.

With Payless Power’s SmarTricity Secure Saver 12 – Prepaid Plan, customers are guaranteed a rate of $0.126/kWh for 12 months regardless of their energy usage, so long as their account balance is $35 or greater each day at the time of billing. Payless Power’s SmarTricity Flex Saver – Prepaid Plan offers the same rate and terms as the 12 month plan, but adds the flexibility of a pay as you go month-to-month electricity plan. With Payless Power, you receive transparent pricing across all of our plans.
