Choose Energy partners only with dependable energy providers so we can build a trusted relationship with our users. The electric companies on our marketplace must meet our standards for reliability, customer service, affordability, and plan variety. Frontier Utilities fulfills these criteria, and we’re pleased to feature the provider on our site.
Types of rates offered by Frontier Utilities
As you browse Frontier energy plans on our marketplace, you’ll find fixed-rate and variable-rate plans.
- Fixed-rate plans: You’ll pay a set rate for electricity throughout your contract. Plans with Frontier Utilities typically last 12–24 months. Fixed-rate plans are ideal if you want predictable energy costs, but they usually include an early termination fee (ETF) if you end your plan before the contract terms are finished.
- Variable-rate plans: In contrast, variable-rate plans do not need a contract — you can end your plan or switch providers at any time without paying an ETF. Your Frontier Utilities rate may change based on the wholesale price of energy. This price can change monthly; variable-rate plans are usually a better choice for the short term.
No-deposit options from Frontier Utilities
Frontier Utilities also offers prepaid energy plans if you prefer to avoid paying a deposit to start your plan. You may also bypass the initial deposit requirement if you meet certain credit thresholds or other criteria. Call Choose Energy at the number on this page to learn more about various no-deposit options.
Green energy with Frontier Utilities
Frontier’s plans contain 25.5% green energy. This figure is below the Texas state average of 31.1% for energy from renewable sources such as solar or wind power. You can learn how much renewable power is in your plan by referring to its Electricity Facts Label (EFL). Explore Frontier’s plans and compare them to 100% green energy options on the Choose Energy marketplace.
Moving or transferring service with Frontier Utilities
Are you preparing to move? You can take your plan with you if you’re a Frontier Utilities customer staying within the company’s service area. Otherwise, you may be able to switch to a different Frontier Utilities plan or sign up with another electricity company near you without paying an ETF.
Renting with Frontier Utilities
If you’re a renter, you can choose from several excellent Frontier Utilities plans, including 12-month fixed-rate and month-to-month variable-rate options. If you’re in a short-term living situation, you might find that variable-rate plans are ideal since you don’t have to sign a long-term contract. Otherwise, you can choose a fixed-rate plan with a term length that aligns with your lease.
With most providers, you’ll need to pay an ETF to cancel a fixed-rate contract early (variable-rate plans don’t have these fees). The Frontier Utilities cancellation fee is $150 for 12-month plans and $200 for 24-month plans.
Frontier Utilities has a Happiness Guarantee for new residential customers. If you’re dissatisfied with your new plan, you can switch to a different Frontier plan with no ETF within 60 days of signing up.
