Prepaid electricity (also known as “pay as you go electricity”) is a smart option for some Texas electricity customers. Customers with no established credit or a poor credit history can get affordable electric service as soon as the same day with prepaid electricity plans.
Compare Prepaid Electric Rates
Prepaid electric plans do not require a credit check or any form of identification to turn on the lights. Customers can get electric service by signing up with an electricity provider that offers prepaid electricity and funding a prepaid account for as little as $30. No credit check and minimal up-front funding makes getting prepaid electricity a snap without the need to save or borrow money for a deposit.
Prepaid electricity plans vary in length from variable rate month-to-month plans to six-month fixed rate plans. Prepaid free nights and weekends plans and 100% green prepaid plans are also available. As always, prepaid electricity is ‘no deposit’ electricity. The only up-front payment required is the amount needed to establish an account balance with your prepaid provider.

However, beginning September 1, 2017, Texas electricity providers may provide a benefit to their low-income customers as a result of Senate Bill 1976. All of the prepaid electricity providers on this site have applied to receive the list of eligible recipients from the state of Texas. To be eligible, you must be in the supplemental nutrition assistance program (SNAP) or on Medicaid, and the name of the program participant must match the name on your electric bill. Once enrolled, you can call your provider for more information after September 1, 2017.
