About Smart Prepaid Electric

Texas residents interested in switching electric suppliers and reducing their electric bills don’t necessarily have to get locked in a fixed-rate contract. A convenient alternative is to choose a pay-as-you-go alternative with a Houston based supplier Smart Prepaid Electric. Founded in 2002, the energy company lets Texans sign up for an account, then pay in advance for the energy they’ll use during that month. In order to be eligible for service, you must have a smart meter at home, which the supplier uses to set up your connection. All you then need to do is top up your account and start using electricity.

Smart Prepaid Electric is part of the Just Energy Group, another Texas electricity provider with two million residential and household customers.

Compare Electricity Rates From Other Suppliers

Prepaid electricity might be the right choice for some Texans, but not for others. The downside of the pay-as-you-go system is the variable rate, which means that the price you pay for a kilowatt-hour of electricity will fluctuate based on the wholesale energy price. You are also running the risk of forgetting to top up your account and being disconnected from service. If you prefer stability (or if you are a forgetful person), you might choose to opt for fixed-rate electricity plans instead. Locking in a good rate means that your price per unit won’t change for the whole duration of your contract. And there are plenty of cheap rates in the Texas energy market to choose from.
