About Pulse Power

Pulse Power was founded in 2018 and is based in The Woodlands. All Pulse Power plans are fixed-rate, which means your electricity rates are locked in for the duration of your contract. You won’t need to worry about volatility in the energy market affecting your Pulse Power electric rates. Pulse also offers a satisfaction guarantee, allowing customers to switch plans within 90 days of their service start date without a fee.

Texans have been enjoying a deregulated energy market since 2002. This means that you have the power to choose between multiple electric suppliers and rate plans in your local area. This may result in savings, but it’s important to carefully look at your options to make the right selection for your energy needs.

How deregulation works

Across the United States, several states have deregulated energy markets. In these areas, electric customers have the ability to pick their electricity provider (like Pulse Power), rather than having one assigned based on where they live. Deregulation was adopted to increase competition in the market with the hopes that it would lead to lower electric bills in states such as Texas.

Pulse Power energy plans

Texas Saver 12

This is the most traditional plan, offering fixed rates for 12 months. If you need to end your contract early and are not moving out of your home, you will owe a $125 early termination fee (ETF).

Free Energy Weekends 12

Although the weekday rates are higher than on the Texas Saver plan, Free Energy Weekends could offer real savings for those who use electricity mostly on the weekends. The $125 ETF will apply if you end your contract early without moving out.

Free Energy Nights 12

This is the equivalent of Free Energy Weekends for those whose primary power usage is at night (8 pm to 6 am). You will pay a premium for usage during the day, but if your usage hours align with the plan, it can be a great way to lower your bill. If you end your contract ahead of schedule for reasons other than moving out, you will need to pay the ETF of $125.

Texas Green 12

Though the rate is higher than that of the other plans, Texas Green is a great way to lower your carbon footprint. The $125 ETF will apply if you end your contract early other than for a move.

With a wide variety of plans, including renewable options and free energy nights and weekends, it makes sense why Pulse Power is so popular with Texas electricity customers. See which Pulse Power plans are available in your area by entering your ZIP code above.

Pulse Power reviews

Overall score: 2.6 out of 5

With the sheer number of potential energy providers, many find it difficult to narrow down their options. Choose Energy wants to help empower consumers to find the right electricity plan at an affordable rate.

To help customers find a great energy provider, we’ve compiled a scoring model to review top electric providers in Texas. The Choose Energy reviews model is based on unbiased and quantitative criteria to ensure provider scores remain objective.

We’ve broken down our scoring model into three main categories:

  • Customer service
  • Online accessibility
  • Business history

Using these criteria, Choose Energy assigns impartial reviews to top electricity providers in Texas. To learn more about electric provider reviews, see our full list here.

Customer service

  • P2C Complaint score: 1
  • Satisfaction Guarantee: 5

The satisfaction guarantee portion of the customer service category was ranked on a yes or no basis. Pulse Power does not currently have a guarantee. The company also holds a low P2C complaint score, listed on the latest version of the Public Utility Commission of Texas’ scorecard.

  • Total customer service score: 3.0

Online accessibility

  • Online bill pay: 5
  • Online chat: 0
  • Access to usage alerts & trends: 5

The three factors in this category were assessed on a yes or no basis. Pulse Power offers online bill pay and providers access to usage alerts, but lack online chat functionality, landing its score here in the middle of the road.

  • Total online accessibility score: 3.3

Business history

  • Years in business: 1
  • Better Business Bureau accreditation: 2

Pulse Power has been in Texas for just a little more than two years, which gives it a low score in the business history category. Additionally, it is not BBB accredited but holds a B- rating from the BBB. While the BBB is a paid accreditation, we’ve included it in the scoring as a measure of each company’s reputation in the eyes of the consumer.

  • Total business history score: 1.5
