Express Energy plans
Express Energy offers several plans for its customers. Below are popular Express Energy plans available in the SaveOnEnergy market. Available plans and rates may vary by location, so enter your ZIP code to see plans near you.
Flash Bundled 12
This 12-month fixed-rate energy plan is compelling for households with high energy usage. You get a $100 bill credit when you use more than 1,000 kWh per month. There is no base charge for this plan. Flash Bundled 12 requires a one-year contract. An ETF of $20 per remaining month applies if you leave before the end of your plan unless you move.
Flash 12 with Auto Pay
The Flash 12 with Auto Pay plan is a 12-month fixed-rate energy plan. Like the Flash Bundled 12, this plan has no base charge and offers a $100 bill credit for using more than 1,000 kWh each month. If you use less than 1,000 kWh, your price per kWh can double. For that reason, we don’t recommend this plan for households with monthly energy usage under 1,000 kWh. An ETF applies for ending the plan early unless relocating.
Express Energy offers the Freeway 24 plan to give customers free energy when they use between 1,001 and 2,000 kWh each month. Energy use outside that range (either more or less kWh) will be charged. However, you can receive a $35 bill credit when using more than 2,000 kWh. This 12-month fixed-rate energy plan has a $9.95 monthly base charge and a one-year contract with an ETF. The ETF does not apply if you move to a new home.

- Oncor, which supplies power to the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex, as well as cities like Pflugerville and Round Rock

SaveOnEnergy’s tips for easy electricity service setup
- 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.
How to move or transfer service with Express Energy
Express Energy makes it easy to transfer your energy service to your new home. With its online, self-service model, you simply log into your online account and provide your new address.

If you’re moving outside Express Energy’s service area, the company will let you out of your contract without paying an early termination fee.
