Payless Power's prepaid electricity plans in Texas start saving you money from day one. Whether in Dallas, Houston, or one of the hundreds of other cities we serve 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 into consumers' hands.

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 your prepaid rate plan. 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. You can use your usage alerts to adjust your usage by simply adjusting the AC 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 get you 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 sends valuable daily usage stats right to your device. We estimate how many days of electricity are left 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!
