Choose Energy only partners with the most trusted energy providers so we can feel confident recommending them to you.

Types of rates offered by Frontier Utilities
Most Frontier Utilities plans are either fixed-rate or variable-rate.
- Fixed-rate plans. These plans offer security and stability with a contract. You will pay a single rate for every kWh of electricity you use. This means fluctuations in the energy market will not affect your rate. If you decide to end your contract early, you will likely pay an early termination fee (ETF), though this is waived if you move and must switch providers.
- Variable-rate plans. Under a variable-rate plan, the rate you pay for electricity will change based on variations in the wholesale energy market. You might be able to take advantage of market lows, but when demand spikes – as it normally does in Texas during the summer – your rate will also go up. Variable-rate plans do not require you to sign a contract, so you can switch to a new plan at any time.

No deposit options from Frontier Utilities
Frontier doesn’t currently offer no-deposit or prepaid plans, but you may be able to have your deposit waived based on your credit score or a number of other factors. Call the number on your screen to find out more.
Green energy with Frontier Utilities
Most Frontier Utilities plans include 15% green energy in the mix, more than the state-mandated 6%. This energy is powered by solar and wind farms. For these plans, the company purchases renewable energy credits to offset your usage. To find the exact amount of renewable energy your plan includes, view the Electricity Facts Label (EFL).
Moving or transferring service with Frontier Utilities
If you are moving to a new home, you can easily transfer your Frontier Utilities plan so that it moves with you. Simply contact Frontier Utilities to let the company know about your upcoming move. Most Texas homes have smart meters installed, so transferring service should not require a technician visit.
Moving into a new home also means you could switch to a different Frontier Utilities plan or switch to a new provider. While fixed-rate plans have early termination fees, you can bypass those fees if you move to a new address and need to end your contract early. Enter your new ZIP code above to check current rates in your area.
Renting with Frontier Utilities
If you rent a house or apartment, you can still find a plan that fits your needs. Frontier Utilities offers both fixed-rate and variable-rate plans, meaning you can choose a month-to-month option if it makes more sense for your situation. The good news is that it’s easy to transfer your energy service when you move. So even if your current living situation is temporary, you can bring your energy plan with you to your next home.
Most providers require an early termination fee for their fixed-rate plans when you end your service before the end of your contract. The amount you’ll pay depends on your provider and the length of your energy plan. Frontier Utilities charges an early termination fee of $150.
Frontier Utilities offers a happiness guarantee that allows you to back out of your plan within 60 days of the activation date without paying an early termination fee.
