About Ambit Energy

Ambit Energy is a multi-level marketing electric company that services residential customers and businesses in 17 deregulated energy states. Ambit is not known for having the best electricity rates in Texas, and in fact its energy plans appear to have pricing that’s generally 30% higher than comparable plans from major Texas energy providers.

Though Ambit does not have a Texas focus, many Texas electricity customers have enrolled in Ambit Energy plans since its founding in 2007 because of the effectiveness of the company’s multi-level marketing strategy, in which local “associates” market Ambit electricity rates to their friends and family members.

Because Ambit Energy rates are high, you may wish to compare electricity rates in Texas from Ambit with other trustworthy brands and plans. And use our Savvy Shopper’s guide to help you choose the cheapest electricity rates and plans from reputable energy providers.

As an electricity provider in the de-regulated areas of Texas in which residential customers have the power to choose their provider, Ambit offers an option to the market which is differentiated by its marketing approach, but otherwise operates like other electricity providers. The company was sold in 2019, and is now a subsidiary of a large publicly-traded energy company.

Ambit Energy Rates in Texas & Plans List

Ambit Energy offers variable and fixed Texas electricity rates, one-year and multi-year energy plans, and both fossil-sourced and renewable energy plans in all de-regulated states. The company offers its existing customers a smartphone app from which they can view their energy usage, make an Ambit energy payment (access Ambit bill pay), manage their accounts, and update their information.

You can compare Ambit’s rates to the best energy rates from top light companies in Texas by typing your zip code in the box at right. Beware of comparison sites such as the one operated by the State of Texas called Power to Choose, which does not provide quality control and allows gimmick plans from providers that cause billing surprises.

When you compare electric rates you can review Ambit Houston rates and also Ambit Dallas rates, and also energy rates for other cities serviced by Ambit which you’ll find by scrolling down this page and locating electricity rates near you. If you wish to make side by side comparisons of plans from Ambit and energy plans from other major light companies, use our Texas electricity rates chart, which you’ll see in the filter section; click on “Compare Plans”.

Ambit has plans offering free electricity, but always beware of plans offering free energy usage periods, since most charge high rates for non-free periods and cost more on average than regular plans. Review the Electricity Fact Label for each plan to confirm that the average rate you’ll pay meets your expectations.

Renewable Energy (Green Energy) Plans

In an effort to help in battling climate change Ambit Energy offers green energy plans, although its green plans are much more expensive than renewable energy plans from providers such as Gexa Energy or TriEagle Energy. For the cheapest renewable energy rate plans that are lower than fossil-sourced plans, check out the 100% green energy plans from numerous top energy providers on Home Energy Club. For a site that exclusively focuses on green energy plans that cost less than fossil plans, Get Green Energy is initiating mass adoption of renewable energy by creating grid parity.

With green energy plans sourced from solar energy or wind energy, you do not need to have expensive solar panels installed on your roof. Utility-scale solar complexes collect solar energy that’s converted into electrical energy and sent to the grid, and then goes to your home via the power lines. Wind energy is generated with wind turbines and enters the grid.

Ambit Energy Customer Service

For Ambit Energy customer service, you can call the Ambit Energy phone number at 877-282-6248 on weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. CDT and on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m CDT. They do not offer 24/7 service. Access your account by going to the Ambit Energy login page.

While Ambit has a high Better Business Bureau rating, numerous reviews noted poor Ambit customer service. One review noted: “Horrible customer service and overpriced to go with it.” Read Ambit reviews in the Ambit Energy Reviews & Ratings section below, and their replies to unhappy customers.

Ambit Energy Bill Pay

For Ambit Energy Bill Pay, you can call the Ambit Energy phone number at 877-282-6248, or for online payment go to the Ambit login link.

You can select between Average Billing and Budget Billing. With Average Billing, you get a monthly bill that’s based on your average energy consumption during the last year and not your actual usage. Then, if the company owes you any money, a credit will be sent to your account, and vice versa. As for Budget Billing, your bill is estimated by multiplying your average energy usage over one year by your current rate. The easiest way to pay your bill is through your MyAmbit Account online account or mobile app.

To access your historic energy usage in order to compare the usage noted in your Ambit bill, visit the Smart Meter Texas website (or find it online as SmartMeterTexas). You can use Home Energy Club’s electricity usage calculator to confirm the effective energy rate you are paying.

Tips to Lower Your Ambit Energy Bill

Here are a few tips that you can follow to lower your electricity bill:

  • Replace regular light bulbs with LEDs.
  • Wash your dirty clothes using cold water instead of hot water.
  • Improve the quality of the insulation of your attic.
  • Use a smart thermostat and light switches.
  • Unplug your appliances at time that you aren’t using them.

Ambit Energy Reviews & Ratings

Before shopping for electricity plans, it’s always recommended to first check the reviews and opinions of existing customers. Here are the Better Business Bureau Ambit reviews of Texans. Here are Ambit Energy reviews from Consumer Affairs.

Switching, Moving In, Moving Out and Cancellation Fees

If you’re moving into a new home and are looking for a new energy plan, you need one that suits your budget and lifestyle without having to worry about billing surprises. If you need help trying to find the plan that’s right for you and your family, take a look at the infographics and online tools to help you through the process at Home Energy Club.

Make sure you first review the Electricity Fact Label (EFL) for each power plan you are considering. This guide can help you compare electricity plans using the EFL across providers on an apples-to-apples basis.

Transferring Your Ambit Energy Plan

If you already have an Ambit Energy electricity plan, you can easily transfer your current service to your new address. Submit your request as early as possible, as it could take one to two business days to process.

Report an Ambit Energy Power Outage

If you have an Ambit power outage at your home, you can call Ambit to report it. However, the fastest way to report an outage is to directly call the Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU, also called TDSP) in your area, as Ambit is a Retail Electricity Provider (REP) that’s only responsible for billing, marketing, while TDUs are responsible for correcting outages, maintaining the lines, and the transmission of electricity.
