Frequently asked questions

Show all answers

From 6 p.m. on Fridays to 11:59 p.m. on Sundays, any energy you use is completely free! That means you'll only pay for the energy you use five days of the week, and you can use as much energy as you want all weekend long. If you meal prep, do chores or host parties on the weekends, this plan is perfect for you!

This plan is a fixed-rate plan. Fixed-rate plans offer a stable energy price that will stay the same for the term length of your plan, protecting you from possible price spikes.

The rate includes your energy price per kilowatt-hour (kWh), which stays the same for the length of your plan contract. The rate also includes charges that help deliver energy to your home, such as the base charge and delivery charges from your Transmission and Distribution Utility. Some of these charges are fixed and others depend on your usage. You can find your energy price per kWh and other charges in your EFL.

When you enroll on a fixed-rate plan, your energy charge listed underneath the Electricity Facts Label chart stays the same for the term length of the plan.

The TDU charges can change, so that component of the total price may not always remain the same.

When you sign up for an electricity plan, you'll be able to choose the day you start service. You will usually be able to start service within seven business days.

*Offer valid for new residential customers in Texas only. Provisioned smart meter required. Free power begins on Fridays at 6:00 PM and ends Sunday at 11:59 PM. Terms and Conditions Apply.
