At Choose Energy, we partner with dependable energy providers to build a trusted relationship with our users. Every electric company 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 may come across two types of rates: fixed-rate and variable-rate plans.
- Fixed-rate plans: If you choose one of these plans, you’ll pay a set rate for electricity, which won’t change as long as your contract is active. With Frontier Utilities, these contracts typically last 12–24 months. Fixed-rate plans are ideal if you want predictable energy costs, but they typically include an early termination fee (ETF) if you end your plan before the contract expires.
- Variable-rate plans: In contrast, variable-rate plans are contract-free — you can terminate your plan or switch providers at any time without paying an ETF. With these plans, your Frontier Utilities rate may change based on the wholesale price of energy, which can rise or fall significantly from month to month.
No-deposit options from Frontier Utilities
If you’d prefer to avoid paying a deposit to start your plan, Frontier Utilities offers prepaid energy plans. You also may be able to bypass the deposit requirement if you meet certain credit thresholds or other criteria. Call Choose Energy at the phone number on this page to learn more about these no-deposit options.
Green energy with Frontier Utilities
Frontier’s plans contain 25.5% green energy, slightly below the Texas state average for energy from renewable sources such as solar or wind power. You can learn how much renewable power is in your plan by reading 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
Preparing to move? If you’re a Frontier Utilities customer staying within the company’s service area, you can take your plan with you. 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
As 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 aren’t satisfied with your new plan, you can change it to a different Frontier plan with no fee within 60 days of signing up.
