Houston's Top Electricity Provider

Houston Electricity Companies

With over 2.3 million residents, Houston is the largest city in Texas and the fourth most populated in the United States. Encompassing over six hundred square miles, Houston stands as the fifth most popular metropolitan area in the country and gets its name from the commander who won Texas’ independence from Mexico in 1836. Houston lies in the southeastern portion of the state within a deregulated Houston Electricity market and as such, allows Houston residents to select electricity plans from the various electricity companies that serve the state. With a vibrant, growing population and many employment and entertainment options – proud home to both the Texas Medical Center and NASA’s Johnson Space Center – the area has unique needs and challenges when it comes to electricity and its residents need a reliable and trusted energy resource that they can choose for affordable electricity plans.


Average Houston Electricity Rates
Using an average of 1,063 kWh of electricity each month, the Houston electricity rates average usage exceed the national average by over 100 kWh. As a city Houston manages to maintain a lower monthly energy plan than the rest of the US, incurring an average fee of $99 in comparison to the $112 national monthly average. To further save on their plans each month, residents can choose from a selection of energy suppliers and Houston electricity plans.

What our Houston Electric customers are saying

Excellent customer service. Great rates. I love the convenience of not having a contract plan, same day service, and balance notifications. No surprises. Magnificent electricity savings with balances equal to more than $35.00.

Michelle D. in Houston

I love Payless Power. One of the best electricity providers I’ve ever had, they are the best thing could happen to my budget. I’ll never leave you.

Chloe F. in Houston

I love payless power. The flexibility to pay my electric bill as much or as little as I need to. The rates are great too. I have a big family and we just received our statement for January and only spent $120 on my electricity plan! I think that’s pretty cool with 4 kids 2 dogs and a 4 bedroom 2 story home!…

Cynthia W. in Houston

I have enjoyed this service! It makes it easier for me to keep track of my usage and helps me budget too! I’m glad this is an option instead of getting a huge bill by surprise like I have in the past!

Gwendolyn F. in Houston

I was with Acacia energy before payless, and I have to say it’s been a MUCH better experience with payless. I started with $35 and its the heat of the summer in Texas and that $35 lasted me just about two weeks

Demekia D. in Houston

The daily emails help me stay aware of my kw usage and it’s super easy to make payments to my account. Enrolled in AutoPay for the discount and to take any worry about forgetting out of the equation. So far, so good!!

ALEXIS R. in Houston

I like the prepay electric service. I know exactly how much electricity my household is using anytime day or night. And I don’t have any more expensive electric bills at the end of the month that I can’t pay. Payless power allows me to have electricity that fits my budget.

Rachel L. in Lufkin

Always a daily alert to let me know my balance, and power usage!! Paying is as easy as login, hit the card you want to charge and put in the amount and hit pay!! Never had any problems, always easy to get ahold of customer service!

Christine F. in Ranger

I love this electrical provider. Most of us live paycheck to paycheck. Paying small amounts whenever its needed is less stressful than a huge bill all at one time. Since I’ve been with this electrical provider my energy use and total monthly payments have been half of what i was paying. I would recommend this electrical provider highly….

Tracy J. in Mansfield

I like the idea of putting money on the account for payment, paying online, easy to understand and figure out how to use the site. What I think you should add is a free weekend or a week of free power. But overall great company!😁

Amy M. in Lufkin

Registering was a little bit of a confusion but overall i love this system.. I love knowing what I’m using everyday it teaches you how to conserve energy. I also love how easy and convenient it is to pay you’re bill.. Thank you Payless Power.

AnnMarie D. in Fort Worth

Love the payless power portal. I can manage my account easily by phone without any hassle! I also love that I can monitor my kilowatt usage. Monitoring my usage makes it easier to estimate how much money to put into my account to hold me off till next pay day. I also love the deferred payment option when times are rough this is an excellent solutio…
