First Choice Power Is No Longer Offering Prepaid Plans

Switch To Payless Power & Save

Are you a customer or were you considering an electricity plan from First Choice Power in Texas? Recently acquired by Reliant Energy, the company is no longer offering prepaid electricity plans. Where can First Choice customers go for an energy solution that is affordable and easy? The right choice﹘dare we say the first choice﹘ is switching to one of Payless Power’s prepaid plans and getting the chance to save 20% on your power bill.

To transition from First Choice Power to Reliant means you need to re-enroll anyway, and that makes now the perfect time to switch providers. Discover the advantages of switching to Payless Power.

Simple Prepaid Plans – Short Commitments, No Contracts

Payless Power offers prepaid plans with more transparent rates than the sometimes-confusing promotional pricing other companies offer (such as Reliant’s 24 month plans or free nights that can cost more during usage hours). Our major plan options include:

Customers can save up to 20% per kWh compared to regular rate plans of other electricity providers. The short commitment period (or month-to-month plans) means you have flexibility to switch plans to find one that suits your household.

Easy Payments, No Surprises

Payless Power customers can help control their costs and avoid unpleasant surprises on their bills by enabling the auto pay option and receiving daily usage alerts to their phone or email. Plus, you can pre-select a dollar amount to automatically add when the account balance is low. Or you can view your balance and reduce your energy use to save money. This helps remove the stress of a missed payment while also controlling your budget. Here are 10 easy ways to lower your electric bill.

Switch from First Choice to Payless Power

If you want the convenience of a prepaid electricity plan, former First Choice customers (now Reliant) can make the easy switch to Payless Power. Here’s how:

  1. Estimate your usage based on previous bills (the number of kWh per month). In Texas, apartments average about 600 kWh a month up to large homes using 2,400 kWh.
  2. Find the Payless Power plan in your zip code that fits your needs and your budget. 
  3. Once your plan is decided, provide your address, name, and set up an account easily online or over the phone.
  4. Make your first Payless Power payment that goes toward the cost of your first bill.
  5. If you’re moving, make sure your home has a smart meter for remote activation by the power company; most Texas homes do. Then inform your current provider of the move. Most companies will waive an early termination fee if proof of the move is provided.
  6. If you’re switching electricity providers in your current residence, the new provider (in this case, Payless Power) will inform the previous provider of the switch.
  7. Set up a same day connection. When possible, plan early in the day as the process can take 4-6 hours.
  8. Enjoy your day as you begin to start saving up to 20% on your energy bills!
