Payless Power Announces New Lower Pre-Paid Electricity Rates 10/1/2012 Leading Texas electricity provider, Payless Power, offers savings of up to 20% off of pre-paid electric services with new low rates.

FORT WORTH, TX – October 1, 2012Payless Power, a leading no deposit electric company in Texas, is pleased to announce that they have decreased their prepaid electricity rates by 3 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh). The new lower rates are in effect as of September 17, 2012 and offer customers savings of up to 20% off when compared to rates prior to the effective date.

Payless Power’s prepaid residential electric service, known as SmarTricity with Flex Pay, offers pay-as-you-go electricity that eliminates late fees. Flex Pay allows customers to deposit money into an account from which funds are deducted with electricity usage. Payments can be made at a customer’s convenience as often as necessary.

“We at Payless Power believe it is important to reward customers for buying more of our product.  With Flex Pay, we offer a unique bulk purchase program.  Much like Costco, the more electricity bought, the more money saved!  This allows customers to take advantage when it is in the budget.  Many of our competitors use tricks like introductory rates or rates that increase because customers become past due or are disconnected and then reconnected.  Payless Power does not practice these types of tricks.  We simply give you the power to payless with Flex Pay.  Check out FLEX PAY on our website at http://www.paylesspower.com/flex-pay.aspx

Payless Power encourages customers to take advantage of their FLEX PAY discount, which will save customers up to an additional 4 cents off of the new lowered rate.  With FLEX PAY, customers who make larger single payments are rewarded with an extra electricity rate discount. A single payment of $75-149.99 earns a 2 cent discount off of the standard rate and a single payment of $150 or more earns a 4 cent discount off of the standard rate.  When customers take full advantage of all discounts, the rates are:

  • 8.6 cents in Dallas-Fort Worth and surrounding areas
  • 9.6 cents in Houston and surrounding areas

Pre-paid electricity with Payless Power requires no credit check, long-term contract, or early cancellation penalty. Payless Power customers have smart meters installed by the Transmission and Distribution Utility to monitor electricity use and make customers aware of how much energy they are consuming daily. Customers can also choose to receive daily text and/or email notifications with account information including how much money is in the account and days of service remaining before a recharge is needed.

Payless Power Introduces Secure Online Payment System 2/10/2012 New system can be accessed 365 days a year, 24 hours per day for electricity payments

FORT WORTH, TX – February 10, 2012 Payless Power, an electricity provider to more than 400 deregulated cities in Texas, has introduced a secure online payment system that allows customers to pay their accounts online with a credit or debit card for pre paid or standard electricity in Texas. Customers may also make payments via telephone, mail, or in-person.

The online payment system, which was officially launched February 10, can be accessed 365 days a year and 24 hours per day via Payless Power's website http://www.paylesspower.com.  The easy-to-use system does not require a user name or password; the customer only needs their account number and billing address zip code from their electric service account. Once the customer inputs this information, they are taken to a screen where the name and account numbers are partially displayed for security purposes. From that point, the customer can view the following information and then choose to make a payment:

  • Account total balance
  • Account past due balance (if applicable)
  • Either the invoice due date or the prepaid service paid-through date (whichever is applicable)
  • To make payment, simply enter the credit card information and payment amount

According to Brandon Young, a principal in Payless Power, the new online payment system was chosen for its user-friendly format and to help customers more easily maintain their electricity accounts.

“Our goal is to provide cash flow flexibility for the customer, including making multiple payments during the month, if necessary. This new online payment system makes it easier and faster for people to do this," explains Young. "Unlike traditional electric companies, that require the bill be paid in full or be shut off, Payless Power allows payments to be made bi-weekly, weekly or even more frequently to fit a customer’s budget."

Since 2005, Payless Power has been helping people in Texas stay connected, regardless of income or credit history.

"We have experienced a huge increase of customers seeking an easy, affordable solution to obtaining no deposit electricity in Texas. Other than our website, reaching us by telephone is the primary source for information and to activate service.

The automated voice response system can be accessed 365 days a year and 24 hours per day by calling 1-866-963-9353 or any of Payless Power's toll free numbers.

  • Last payment amount
  • Last payment date
  • Account total balance
  • Account past due balance (if applicable depending on the customer’s service plan)
  • Either the invoice due date or the pre paid service paid through sate (whichever is applicable to the customer’s service plan)

Payless Power Now Offers Prepaid Electric Service in Texas Utilizing Smart Meters 10/1/2011 Get SmarTricity with Flex Pay for prepaid electric service in Texas with NO deposit , NO credit check, and NO long term contract

FORT WORTH, TX – October 1, 2011Payless Power, a leading no deposit electric company in Texas, is now utilizing smart meters as part of its pay-as-you go electricity plans to help customers better manage their usage and budget. By monitoring electricity usage in real-time, smart meters let Retail Electric Providers and Consumers know just how much energy has been consumed at any time during the course of a month; therefore, by using these advanced meters, the consumer will be notified of how much energy they are consuming daily to try to monitor and reduce their electricity costs.

According to Brandon Young, a principal in Payless Power, prepaid services utilizing the smart meter data makes billing more accurate and timely, while allowing the consumer to pay less money to get service connected as opposed to post paid service, which typically require a passing credit score or a large cash deposit. 

“Not only do we help people throughout Texas to obtain prepaid electricity with no deposit or credit check, but now we also offer them the best solution to track usage and make payments as often as necessary," explains Young.  The smart meter will be professionally installed by the Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU) in nearly all homes within Texas by 2013. “Many people are experiencing cash flow shortages and need the most flexible payment options possible.  Payless Power’s SmarTricity with Flex Pay will allow payments as frequently as monthly, weekly or even daily if need be."

In the simplest terms, Payless Power’s SmarTricity with Flex Pay electric service works similar to a reloadable calling card or prepaid cell phone.  Customers put money into an account and as electricity is used, funds are deducted. The smart meter, which is installed by TDU, records energy usage on a 15 minute interval basis.  Each day, Payless Power will send a notification updating the customer of the usage for the day, the balance on their account, and approximately how many days they have left before service will be interrupted if a payment is not made.  Additional money can be put into the account, either by telephone or at a payment center, as often as needed to maintain electric service.  Online payments will be available to Payless Power consumers by the 4th Quarter of 2011. 

With Payless Power, using a smart meter to obtain pre paid electric service in Texas is simple and provides the customer payment flexibility:

  • To start service, the customer calls and creates an account with Payless Power.
  • If the address is a qualified address with an installed meter, then Payless Power can offer SmarTricity with Flex Pay service.
  • Payless Power then takes a payment to start the service.
  • As electricity is used, it is deducted from the prepaid electric balance. Customers may add money to the account as often as needed. If the balance reaches zero, the service is interrupted. Once a payment is posted to the account, service is restored within minutes.
  • The customer will receive daily notifications via text or email as to what their account balance is and how many days they have left on their service before being interrupted.
  • In addition, Payless Power will send out a weekly supplemental paper statement.  This insures the customer receives something by mail, which may help when a customer changes their email or telephone number and forgets to update their records with Payless Power. 

"Payless Power’s goal is to help people obtain prepaid electricity service with no hassles and then provide them with payment options to keep the lights on," says Young. "In today's economy, pre paid electric service is becoming more popular with homeowners and businesses." 

Since 2005, Payless Power has been helping people stay connected, regardless of income or credit history. As a family-owned business, and not a giant electric company, we take great pride in serving our customers with care and respect. Our prepaid electricity plans are designed to meet the needs of your lifestyle and budget:

  • No Deposit
  • Standard Connection typically within 2-3 Business Days
  • Same Day/Next Day Priority Connection Available

  • No Credit Check or ID Needed
  • No Long-term Contract or Early Cancellation Penalty

i5 web works has a proven track record of working with companies for local, regional and national internet marketing campaigns since 2002, including SEO, pay-per-click (PPC) advertising and social media.

“Unlike most other forms of marketing and advertising, internet marketing efforts are easily tracked and results are typically seen much faster,” explains Michael Burns, principal at i5 Web Works, noting the company is certified and trained in SEO and PPC services.  “An organization can have a beautiful web site, but if prospective clients are not finding it when they search for your products and services, then it is not an effective website. We help businesses be found!”
