Reliant Energy Plans vs Payless Power Plans

We're Here to Help

We have plans to support you and your energy needs

Reliant Energy, a subsidiary of Fortune 500 company NRG Energy, Inc., has been providing electricity to Texans for almost 20 years from their Houston headquarters. As one of the largest Texas electricity providers, Reliant Energy serves over one million homes and businesses across the state. Through customer empowerment, award-winning customer service, innovative and smart energy solutions, and competitive pricing, Reliant Energy is committed to continuously improving their customer experience to make powering your home or business as simple as it should be.

Reliant Energy Plans vs Payless Power Plans

Reliant Energy offers a variety of prepaid and traditional electricity plans such as pay as you go, month-to-month, and a range of 9-24 month plans. Their average electricity rates are $0.125/kWh, however that number can quickly go up as much as 3 cents per kilowatt hour if a customer uses less than 2000 kWh/month, like with the Reliant Clear Flex month-to-month plan for example.

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.

Reliant Electricity Plans Reliant Plan Length Reliant Rate
Reliant – Secure Advantage 12 12 months $0.121 / kWh
Reliant – Secure Advantage 24 24 months $0.117 / kWh
Reliant – Clear Flex 1 months $0.131 / kWh
Reliant – Truly Free Nights 24 24 months $0.127 / kWh
Reliant – Truly Free Weekends 24 24 months $0.127 / kWh
Reliant – Pay As You Go 1 months $0.129 / kWh

Why Payless Power is Better

More Flexible Plans

As seen above, Reliant Energy advertises low energy across their prepaid and traditional electricity plans, but it takes more digging to see that your Electricity rate with Reliant could actually be higher if you use less than 2000 kWh/month.

In comparison, Payless Power offers flexible prepaid electricity plans, putting the control back in your hands. For example, the SmarTricity Predictable 12 plan will lock in a low electricity rate for 12 months and has a $90 early termination fee. On the other hand, the SmarTricity Super Saver plan, which is a month-to-month plan, is only a few cents per kilowatts more than 12 month plans, and there is no early termination fee. Both plans only require a $30 minimum upfront payment, which is immediately applied to your energy usage.

Choose Payless Power’s flexible prepaid electricity plans for an easier and more affordable experience.

No Late Fees

A key benefit to switching to a Payless Power prepaid electricity plan is the complete elimination of having to pay late fees. This is because when a customer has pay as you go electricity, they put money into an account from which funds are deducted as electricity is used. Payless Power believes in clear pricing and saving customers money on their electricity bills.

No Credit Check

Payless Power believes that everyone should have access to affordable electricity regardless of their income or credit history, so we do not require a credit check for you to switch to one of our prepaid electricity plans. We ensure a very quick and easy sign up process as well as same day service so that you can start saving money on your electricity bill as soon as possible. At Payless Power, we won’t let a credit check get in the way of you gaining control over your energy usage and spend.

Daily Usage Alerts

Only want to spend a certain amount each month? How about alerts when your account balance is low so that you can either decrease your energy usage or prepay for money? At Payless Power, that’s no problem. With our personalized text or email alerts, you can monitor your daily usage, energy costs, and account balance. At the end of the month, we will send a statement detailing your prior month’s payments, charges, and savings history. Payless Power wants to ensure that our customers can make informed payments that suit their varying budgets.
