Spark Energy Plans in Texas

Spark Energy plans offer competitive electricity rates in Texas, but a number of Spark Energy plans are not straight-forward and include gimmicks that can cause bill surprises. Take your time and do your research before enrolling in Spark Energy plans.

Fixed Rate Plans

Spark Energy plans include fixed-rate electricity that lock in your rate for up to three years, including partial year plans, and plans with 12, 24 and 36-month term lengths.

If you are interested in plans from light companies in Texas offering free electricity, such as so-called free nights and weekends plans, be certain to review the EFL for these plans and note the rates for the non-free hours, which are often high. For no deposit electricity, energy providers will generally not require a deposit if you meet their credit requirements. You can also check electric companies that offer pay as you go “prepaid” plans that do not require deposits.

Be Cautious of Plans with High Base Charges

Spark electricity plans in Texas include some straight-forward rates that produce relatively predictable energy bills, but the company also has energy plans that have the potential to produce severe billing surprises. These plans have large base fees regardless of the amount of energy you consume.

If your home consistently uses large amounts of energy each month, these plans may result in competitive pricing, but if you have a small home, apartment, or condo, your relatively low usage may result in an average rate of up to 30+ cents per kWh.

Home Energy Club

Thank you for giving us your information so that we
can send you our best rates when you need them.

We will soon send you a link to our Savvy Shopper's Guide. It includes:


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.
