Payless Power energy plans

Payless Power requires a minimum account balance, which is usually $75. Customers will receive daily balance updates so funds don’t run too low. To supplement your account funds, you must add at least $20 at a time; any payments less than $20 will not be accepted. At the end of your contract or when you’re done paying for month-to-month service, Payless Power will refund any account balance of $5 or more. We recommend carefully reading the Terms of Service for prepaid plans so you have a good understanding of how they work.

SmarTricity Easy Choice – Prepaid Plan

This is a variable-rate plan that has no contract, meaning you pay month-to-month and don’t have to worry about an early termination fee. There is a daily charge of $2.67 to cover the first 17 kWh. Any usage beyond 17 kWh is then charge at an average price per kWh. We recommend this plan to customers of all usage levels, since pricing is relatively equal across the board. A good prepaid option, it’s important to point out that variable rates fluctuate with the market. You may end up saving money during periods of low demand or paying a little more when demand spikes.

SmarTricity Premier 12 – Prepaid Plan

This is another prepaid option from Payless Power but it is a 12-month fixed rate. The terms are the same as the SmarTricity Easy Choice – Prepaid Plan: $2.67 per day plus an average rate charge for each kWh above 17 kWh. Because this plan requires a 12-month contract, there is a $60 early termination fee. We recommend this plan to customers of all usage levels who are looking for a price-stable prepaid electricity plan.

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.
