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.

Very good service Easy to use!
The service has been incredibly easy to use. A two year old could do it. KSA from Dickinson TX

Wish I was with Paylesspower ... switching soon
I called for what I should do in my situation. Rudy, helped me and he gave me some great advice to keep me from coming across another dilemma! The fact that someone actually saved me time and saved me a headache, instead of just processing payment and leaving me in the dark( no pun intended) he told me the best way to go about my situation and Im just Thankful! I will be switching to Payless once my situation is over! Thank you Rudy!!!! Crystal Vell from Lewisville TX

So far, so good
Thank you. Elaine Bennett from Angleton TX

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.

Terrible Company

I have been with this company for a few years and loved them until about a month ago. I don't know what happened but service is awful now. They don't do what the say, block me from changing companies, and customer service is so rude.
