Discount Power Plans

Discount Power specializes in simple, fixed-rate energy plans that produce more predictable discount electricity bills. They also offer variable Discount Power rate month-to-month plans if you don’t wish to be locked into a contract or pay a cancellation fee for early termination of service.

When searching for reliable electricity providers, Discount Power energy options stand out for their blend of affordability and service quality. Also, if you are looking for discount electricity rates, Discount Power offers plans with various fixed-term lengths, including one-year and multi-year plans.

It’s highly recommended that you review the Electricity Fact Label for any electricity plan you are considering, and you can use our helpful EFL guide for Texas electricity customers to learn how to compare Texas energy rates apples to apples.

No Deposit Electricity

Many residents search for no deposit electricity in Texas, and light companies such as Discount will not require a deposit if you have good credit.

Direct Power Electricity Rates in Deregulated Texas Cities

Discount Power rates are competitive in Texas, especially in each de-regulated energy city (note that Austin, San Antonio, Beaumont-Orange and Conroe-Woodlands are regulated). Rates for each transmission and distribution utility zone (TDU) will vary for each power company in Texas. For example, Discount Power Houston rates in the Centerpoint zone, and Discount Power Dallas rates in the Oncor zone, can be significantly different.

Also, Discount Power’s rates are different than those of its sister companies that are also owned by NRG, including Reliant Energy, Cirro Energy and Green Mountain Energy. You can find rates for all of these light companies at Home Energy Club by entering your zip code.

Look for a Discount Power promo code on our promo code page. Discount codes reduce the rates of electric companies on their websites.

If you find the selection process for energy rates confusing, check out our Texas Savvy Shopper’s electricity buyer’s guide to help you choose the best energy plan for your home.

Discount Power Renewable Energy (Green Energy) Plans

Due to the simplicity of Discount Power’s “no frills” approach, it usually does not offer renewable energy plans in Texas (such as plans sourced with solar energy).

Check out Direct Power’s sister companies, Green Mountain Energy and Reliant Energy, for 100% renewable energy plans on Home Energy Club by typing in your zip code.

Report a Discount Power Outage

Experiencing a Discount Energy power outage?

The utility companies in Texas that correct outages include Centerpoint Energy in the Houston area, Oncor Electric in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Texas-New Mexico Power Company (TNMP), and AEP Texas (which has two zones).

  • AEP: 866-223-8508

You should always read a plan’s EFL details to decide if it’s a fit for you, but our system does the tedious math to help you compare estimated costs. Of course, your future bill amounts will depend on your future usage.

You will find a widget on Home Energy Club which fetches your home’s energy usage data from Smart Meter Texas (SMT) and runs calculations of the rate structures of energy plans to help you conveniently estimate the cost of energy plans you are considering, based on your prior 12 months of energy usage as reported by SMT.

In one of the text panels of the widget, you will see an authorization button. By checking the permission box above the fields in which you enter your name and email address, and clicking on the authorization button, you are authorizing Smart Meter Texas to provide us with your location’s energy usage information so that our system can run cost calculations. It’s important to note that errors can occur when developing and running calculations, and the Company does not guarantee that its cost numbers are correct. You should always read the Electricity Facts Label (EFL) for each energy plan you are considering before enrolling, and make an independent decision on whether the plan is an appropriate fit for your home based on your own calculations and all the information disclosed by energy providers in the EFL.
