Spark Energy Rates vs Payless Power Rates

We're Here to Help

We have plans to support you and your energy needs

Spark Energy has provided competitive electricity and natural gas plans to over 1 million residential and commercial customers nationwide from their Houston, Texas headquarters since 1999. Through a variety of short and long term plans, they provide energy savings expertise, community support, and customer service, as well as over 3 million MWh of retail electricity load annually to their customers.

Spark Energy Rates vs Payless Power Rates

Spark Energy offers a wide variety of short term and long term electricity plans, ranging from 3 months to 24 months. The average rate for their electricity plans is $0.106/kWh. While there are many postpaid plans available, there are no month-to-month plans for customers who are looking for more flexibility.


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.
