TXU Energy Free Nights & Solar Days


TXU Energy Free Nights & Solar Days

As one of the biggest energy companies in Texas TXU, we couldn’t help ourselves to reveal the truth about their biggest plan: TXU Energy Free Nights & Solar Days Reviewed

Previously we have talked about “FREE NIGHTS” or “FREE WEEKENDS” energy plans. We learned that these “FREE” energy plans are not what we expect.

Why we don’t like FREE energy plans?

In the first place, those plans have higher electricity rates; average of 15 cents per kWh. Secondly, those energy plans dictate when you are supposed to do things. Thirdly, these FREE ENERGY plans are not entirely FREE. The energy delivery can’t be free, it just can’t.

As I have said in previews blog posts, simple is better, control your electricity in your own terms, save energy when you can the best you can.

Please note that I took the Electricity Facts Label (EFL) from each energy company for the same zip code. Due to PUC enforcement, these EFLs need to be publish to the public for every energy plan out there.

And the winner is

Given these points, hassle free prepaid electricity with Payless Power is the winner. This is just using your electricity without any saving energy efforts.

To conclude, one of my favorite features of Payless Power prepaid energy services is the daily text notification of usage. With this super-smart tool, I can see how many kWh I used 2 days ago. This way I can measure my saving energy efforts and see if that effort is worth it to do it again and become a normal thing to do.
