Bulb energy plans
Bulb keeps things simple by offering just one energy plan to its customers. The company doesn’t offer the fixed-rate contracts that many companies use. Instead, it only supplies its Simply-Flex plan, which is a variable-rate month-to-month plan powered by 100 percent renewable energy. According to Bulb, this simplicity helps them to keep rates low.

Bulb’s community investment currently comes in the form of its investments in renewable energy.

Frequently asked questions about Texas energy plans
What is a variable-rate plan?
When you sign up for a variable-rate energy plan, you aren’t locked into a contract. Instead, you pay month to month, and your rate fluctuates with the energy market. Bulb currently only offers variable-rate energy plans. But because you won’t be locked into a contract, you can switch to another energy plan whenever you need.
Who do I call if there’s an outage?
No matter who supplies the energy that powers your home, your utility company still delivers your electricity and maintains the infrastructure. If you experience an outage, you should contact your local utility, not your provider.
Why does Choose Energy run a credit check?
Energy suppliers require a credit check on most of their plans. Customers without satisfactory credit may be required to pay an upfront deposit. Bulb’s deposits are limited to the estimated total of two months of electricity. If you’d rather not pay a deposit, you can learn more about no-deposit energy plans.
What happens if I move?
If you’re moving to another location within your current supplier’s service area, you can simply move your service to your new address. If you move to a location outside your current supplier’s service area, you’ll have to switch providers. You can use Choose Energy’s marketplace to shop for a new plan by entering your ZIP code on the screen.
A few things to remember
There are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for your next energy plan:
- Make sure to read your new plan’s Electricity Facts Label (EFL) before signing up. It will include critical information such as your price per kilowatt-hour, the percentage of renewable energy in your plan, and early termination fees.
- Once you sign up, your supplier will handle the setup. They’ll coordinate directly with your utility to deliver your energy without any interruption to your power.
- Make sure to read and understand your electricity bill. Because your utility company will still deliver your electricity and maintain the infrastructure, your bill will include a utility charge separate from your supplier rate.
