Stream Energy Rates vs Payless Power Rates

We're Here to Help

We have plans to support you and your energy needs

Stream Energy has provided residential and commercial customers electricity and natural gas services in Texas as well as other deregulated energy markets across the country since 2005. They offer EZ Start and EZPay programs to make switching to their service easier. Stream Energy offers flexible and fixed electricity plans to meet a variety of customer needs.

Stream Energy Rates vs Payless Power Rates

Stream Energy offers a variable rate month-to-month electricity plan for new customers only, plus fixed-rate plans with 12, 36, or 60-month contracts. Their lowest rates are on the longest contract plans, which may make customers feel stuck in a plan that isn’t right for them. Changing plans may result in early termination fees of several hundred dollars.

In contrast, Payless Power offers straightforward plans with transparent pricing, including our prepaid electricity options. Our Simple 6 Premier 12 plan are  fixed-rate electricity plans with guaranteed rates per kWh for the 6 or 12-month contract. Both prepaid plans, often called pay-as-you-go electricity, help customers control costs by adjusting their electricity usage and paying on a schedule convenient to them.


Plan Name Plan Length Rate
Smart Choice 60 60 months 15.9¢/kWh
Simple & Secure 36 months 17.6¢/kWh
Conserve & Save 12 months 25¢/kWh
Green & Clean 12 month 23.9¢/kWh
Simple & Secure 12 months 23.3¢/kWh
Flex Choice Intro 1 month 25.8¢/kWh

Clear Pricing

With Payless Power, what you see is what you get when it comes to clear pricing. Prepaid electricity is very transparent in that it only uses the funds in your account to provide you electricity at the predetermined rate in the plan. There are no hidden fees for calling customer service, no payment/load fee to simply put your money on your account on top of prepaying for services, no minimum usage charges, or late payment fees, like you might see with our competitors. We pride ourselves in providing convenient, affordable electricity to Texas residents.

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.

No Deposit

When you choose a Payless Power prepaid electricity plan, a hefty deposit is not required. In fact, only a minimal connection fee is paid that goes directly toward the cost of electricity – not a costly admin fee you’ll never see again! You’ll start saving right away with Payless Power’s no-deposit plans that are easy to connect.
