Below you can learn more about some of the company’s most popular plans. Available rates and plans will depend on where you live, so you should enter your ZIP code above for the most accurate plan information.

You Got This 12

The You Got This 12 is a 12-month fixed-rate energy plan. When you sign up for this plan, your rate is locked in for one full year. It’s long enough to protect you from price hikes, but short enough to provide some flexibility. This plan has a $135 early termination fee if you end your contract before it expires.

You Got This 24

The You Got This 24 is a 24-month fixed-rate energy plan. Like the You Got This 12 plan, this option guarantees your rate for the entirety of your plan. If you can lock in a low rate, this plan offers even more price protection because it secures your rate for two years. This plan includes an early termination fee of $135 if you end your contract early.

You Got This After Hours 12

The You Got This After Hours 12 is a 12-month fixed-rate energy plan that offers free electricity usage from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. each day. It’s well-suited to households that use the majority of their electricity at night. There is an early termination fee of $135 if you end your contract before it expires.

First Choice Power service areas

While the deregulated energy market in Texas lets you choose your energy provider, your utility company is based on where you live. First Choice Power does business in many utility service areas in Texas:

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 First Choice Power

First Choice Power makes it easy to transfer your energy plan during a move. Contact the provider about two weeks before your move, and they’ll take care of everything else on their end. If you’re moving out of First Choice Power’s service area, the company will let you cancel your fixed-rate energy plan without paying an early termination fee.

First Choice Power electric rates in my area

Energy rates can vary in different parts of Texas due to varying transmission and delivery charges from the utility company. The price you’re quoted for a First Choice Power plan in one part of the state could be different from what someone pays in another part of the state, even for the same plan. Because of that, it’s important to shop specifically for electricity rates in your area.
