Prepaid electricity saves you money.

Payless Power's prepaid electricity plans in Texas start saving you money from day one. Whether you are in Dallas, Houston, or one of dozens of other cities across the Lone Star State, you’ll discover rates that can save you 20% over traditional electric companies.

And with daily monitoring, you can take control over how much electricity you're using. Never be surprised when paying your electricity bill again! Prepaid plans put the power back in the hands of the consumer.

Everyone is approved. No deposit required.

Everyone deserves access to electricity. That’s why we don’t require a deposit, credit check, or long-term contract — regardless of which prepaid plan you choose.

Those living in our Texas electricity ZIP code areas are automatically approved for prepaid electricity. We don’t use credit score, credit history, or utility payment data to determine your rate.

All you need is a Texas address (whether you rent or own), a smart meter (already in a majority of Texas homes), a payment method, an initial balance (not a deposit) that applies to your actual electricity costs, and an online account for usage statements.

Monitor your usage and manage your budget.

Our personalized text and email alerts let you monitor your daily electricity usage, electricity costs, and account balance. Some plans allow you to limit your usage in advance, or you can use your usage alerts to adjust your usage by simply adjusting the A/C or turning off the lights.

At the end of the month, we’ll send a statement detailing your prior month’s prepaid electricity payments, charges, and savings history. Choosing autopay, along with account updates, means no more surprise expenses (thanks to your prepaid light and electricity payments).

Quick and easy same-day connection.

Our team is here to ensure you receive electricity when you need it! Smart meters allow service connection in just a few hours.

Payless Power, your trusted Texas prepaid light company, offers quick connection and valuable daily usage stats right to your device. We help estimate how many days of electricity remain based on your usage and account balance and alert you if your prepaid balance needs a deposit to maintain service without interruption.

It’s a win-win-win: cost savings at the start, a no-deposit connection that continues all year, and affordable electricity and flexible payment options!

It really depends.
