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.

Double of what other power companies charge- avoid this one at all costs!

I am a very cheap person when it comes to electricity- and it's all Payless Power's fault.

Unplugging appliances as soon as they're not in use- turning lights off as soon as I leave the room, leaving them off when I'm in my bedroom, covering up windows and doors- you name it I've done it all in order to keep my electric bill low. And by "low" with Payless Power, I mean shelling out $40 every other week or even weekly.

It gave me anxiety, checking my balance and knowing I'm getting low. I switched, and I expected the new power company to be worse since I left lights on, had the a/c on for a handful of days...but it was only $50 for the whole month! I am in absolute shock, Payless Power is an absolute scam. Under no circumstances should you EVER switch to Payless Power.

You've been warned.

Use to be great now its nothing but problems

I use to love this company years ago. Unfortunately I feel the price has dramatically increased and customer is not well trained. I have had nothing but problems this last year.
