Types of rates offered by Champion Energy
Champion Energy offers two main rate types that you should familiarize yourself with. Each rate option has its own benefits depending on your requirements.
- Fixed-rate plans: Champion Energy’s fixed-rate plans allow you to guarantee an electricity rate for the duration of your plan, which is usually 12 or 24 months. These plans protect you against sudden price spikes when demand increases. However, you may need to pay a cancellation fee if you decide to terminate the plan early.
- Variable-rate plans: A variable-rate plan includes an electricity rate that rises and falls in line with the market price. These plans operate on a month-to-month basis and can be canceled at any time. You may be able to access very low rates at certain times. However, you won’t have any protection against high prices if the market fluctuates.
By entering your ZIP code, you can explore fixed-rate and variable-rate plans from Champion Energy on our marketplace.
No-deposit options from Champion Energy
You can get a prepaid energy plan from Champion Energy. This type of plan allows you to pay for your energy upfront and load more credit onto your account when the balance drops. These plans are ideal if you want to avoid paying a deposit before your energy services commence.
Green energy with Champion Energy
The Lone Star State leads the way in wind energy production and is near the top of the list in solar energy generation. Every power plan sold in Texas has some portion of green energy in it. You can find out the exact percentage of green energy in your Champion Energy plan by consulting your electricity facts label (EFL).
Moving or transferring service with Champion Energy
If you move addresses during your plan, you can transfer your Champion Energy agreement to supply your new home if Champion offers service in that area. If you move outside Champion’s service area, you may be able to avoid paying a cancellation fee when you switch to another provider.
Renting with Champion Energy
If you rent your apartment, you can choose one of Champion Energy’s fixed-rate plans that best corresponds with your rental agreement. If you’re renting on a short-term basis, you may prefer to opt for a variable-rate plan so you have maximum flexibility to switch plans if you move to a new address.
Champion Energy charges an average cancellation fee of $225 if you cancel your fixed-rate plan early. You may be able to avoid a fee if you move outside of Champion Energy’s service area. If you’re on a variable-rate plan, you won’t be subject to cancellation fees.

A few things to remember
Review your plan’s Electricity Facts Label before signing up. It contains important information including:
- Price per kilowatt-hour based on usage
- % renewable energy sourcing
- Early termination fees
Enjoy hassle-free supplier setup. Once your order has been confirmed, your new supplier will set up service with your utility, or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP) – but don’t worry, there shouldn’t be any interruption to your power during the switch.
Understand your electricity bill. Your local TDSP will still deliver your electricity and maintain electric infrastructure, including meters and power lines. Your utility fees can be found as TDU or TDSP charges on your monthly bill. They are independent of your supplier rate.
