Whether you choose a fixed rate or variable rate plan, prepaid lights put the power back in the hands of the consumer.
Everyone deserves access to electricity. Regardless of the prepaid plan you choose, we require no deposit, no credit check, and no long-term contract. If you live in our Texas electricity zip code areas, you're 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 (which isn’t a deposit) that goes toward your actual electricity costs, and an online account so we can send you your usage statements.Learn More About Our No Deposit Electricity Plans
With our personalized text or email alerts, you can monitor your daily electricity usage, electricity costs, and account balance. Some plans allow you to limit your usage in advance, or as you receive your usage alerts, you can adjust your usage accordingly by simply turning up the A/C or turning off the lights. At the end of the month, we will send a statement detailing your prior month’s prepaid electricity payments, charges, and savings history. Whether you choose a fixed rate or month-to-month plan, autopay and account updates mean no more surprise expenses thanks to your prepaid light and electricity payments.
Our team is here to ensure you receive electricity when you need it! Smart meters allow service to be connected in just a few hours. Payless Power, your trusted Texas prepaid light company, offers quick connection, then provides valuable daily usage stats right to your device. We help estimate how many days of electricity are remaining based on your usage and account balance, then we alert you if your prepaid balance needs a deposit to maintain service without interruption.

Since there are fluctuations in electricity rates, the amount that you can save is not consistent, or we cannot give you a firm number. But consumer feedback says that they were able to save up to 27% compared to other providers and electricity plans. Payless Power’s ability to access low kilowatt-hour (kWh) rates helps them save automatically. They also notify their customers of their daily usage, which gives them a heads up of how much power they consume and what steps to take to conserve electricity.
Prepaid Electricity is an electricity plan that allows customers to control electricity use by paying before using electricity. Prepaid electricity plans are available in states like Texas and Maryland due to their deregulation laws. Thanks to its flexibility, the plans are known as “pay as you go” plans.
All you need to do is pay for your electricity before you use it, which is why these plans are often referred to as pay as you go plans. They’re popular due to their flexibility and often don’t require credit checks, deposits, or long-term contracts. You just pay for how much electricity you want, and then you go about your routine.
It really depends. For instance, if you do not want to prepay for electricity up front and are looking to get locked in at a low rate for the entire length of your 1-year rental lease, then a postpaid electricity plan is the best option for you. On the flip side, if you do not have good credit, cannot afford to pay for a deposit up front, and want flexibility on a month-to-month basis, then you should go with a prepaid electricity plan.
Pay as you go electricity plans allow consumers to pay for their electricity in advance. The plan, which uses prepayment meters, helps consumers to monitor and control the way they use electricity. This saves on energy costs.
