Payless Power -- Profile Analysis

Payless Power logo

Founded in 2005, Payless Power is an electricity provider operating in the deregulated Texas marketplace that specializes in pre-paid electricity. Payless power caters to customers that have advanced smart-metering systems to offer pre-paid, or pay-as-you-go electricity service to consumers who may want to avoid paying deposits or signing a contract. Customers can then monitor their usage and how much power they have left through their personal accounts. If an individual or business doesn't have a smart-meter installed, Payless Power will help coordinate the process of having one installed.

    Good service

    No problem with service but I've never understood the billing or what the actual coat per kwr is. On the average 4 kwh's costs me just over $3.00. This seems very high

    no bargain

    they neglected to mention they have a $2.99 cent per day minimum, so you're guaranteed a $90/mth bill even if you're just running a fridge and nothing else. I've had monthly bills where my average cost was 48 cents per kw. Not a good value when they advertise 16 cents/kw if you their minimum kw

    Inflation really !!! from Texas
