Payless Power plans

Payless Power specializes in prepaid electricity plans and is considered the top no-deposit electricity company in Texas. Below are a couple of their plans to help you choose the best electric plan for you:

SmarTricity Easy Choice — Prepaid Plan

The SmarTricity Easy Choice plan is a variable-rate plan with no contract, meaning you pay month-to-month and don’t have to worry about an early termination fee. This plan includes a daily charge of $2.67 to cover the first 17 kWh of electricity, and anything beyond that is charged at an average price per kWh. Pricing is relatively equal across the board, making this an excellent option for customers of all usage levels.

SmarTricity Premier 12 — Prepaid Plan

The SmarTricity Premier 12 is a fixed-rate electricity plan with a 12-month contract. 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. The difference is that with this plan, you’re locked into a contract, and will have to pay an early termination fee of $60 if you cancel early.
