About Ambit Energy

Ambit Energy is a Dallas-based electricity provider that serves business and residential energy customers around Texas. It started in 2006 when Jere Thompson, Jr. and Chris Chambless saw an opportunity to stake their claim in the deregulated Texas energy market.

The company is a bit different from other electricity suppliers in Texas because it employs a network of “energy consultants” who sell Ambit Energy plans to earn a commission. According to Ambit Energy, more than 600,000 consultants have joined the company for this purpose.

Ambit Energy energy plans

Secure Savings 36

As one of the fixed-rate Ambit Energy plans, customers who select the Secure Savings 36 plan will enter into a three-year contract. If you’re willing to commit to this term length, you could benefit from lower rates with this plan.

Lone Star Classic 12 

This is another popular fixed-rate plan from Ambit Energy. It includes a 12-month contract, so you can have a good sense of how much your bill will be each month.

Lone Star Flex 

This plan is a variable-rate plan, meaning that your electricity rate can vary during service. Since it’s a month-to-month agreement, there’s no need to lock into a contract, but you could be vulnerable to fluctuating rates.

Free & Clear Nights 12 

If you have a smart meter, you could be eligible for this renewable energy plan from Ambit Energy. You’ll need to sign up for a 12-month contract, but you’ll get free electricity during nighttime periods.

Ambit Energy reviews

Ambit Energy has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. But it does not fare as well on the scorecard compiled by the Public Utilities Commission of Texas. It has a “3” score on the report through Sept. 30, 2020. Five is the top score.

Texas energy plan FAQs

Who do I call if there’s an outage? 

Your utility company is responsible for the maintenance of power lines in your area. To report an outage, contact that company. 

What is a fixed-rate plan?

If you sign up for a fixed-rate electricity plan, you’ll be locking in a certain rate for the entirety of your contract length. Typically, these contracts are 12, 24, or 36 months.

What is a variable-rate plan? 

In contrast, a variable-rate plan doesn’t require you to sign up for a long-term agreement with an electricity supplier. The trade-off is that your rate can go up or down, depending on the current market rate of electricity. 

Why does ChooseEnergy run a credit check?

When you sign up for a new electricity plan in Texas, the supplier requires a credit check before beginning service. Instead of having to do that with each potential provider, Choose Energy manages that process for you with one soft check that won’t damage your credit.

A few things to remember

  • Don’t forget to read your plan’s Electricity Facts Label before signing up. It contains important information including:
    • Price per kilowatt-hour based on usage
    • % renewable energy sourcing
    • Early termination fees
  • Enjoy hassle-free supplier setup. Once your order has been confirmed, your new supplier will set up service with your utility, or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP) – but don’t worry, there shouldn’t be any interruption to your power during the switch.
  • Understanding your electricity bill. Your local TDSP will still deliver your electricity and maintain electric infrastructure including meters and power lines. Your utility fees can be found as TDU or TDSP charges on your monthly bill. They are independent of your supplier rate.
