Questions? We can help!
It's easy! Go to our Plans and Pricing page, compare our low electricity rates and plan lengths, and then choose your plan.
In most cases, we can setup your electricity service for the same day. We’ll relay your request for power to your local TDU immediately, and they may or may not apply a priority fee for same-day service. Requests placed after 3 pm are often handled the next day, excluding Sundays.
We offer several fixed, low-rate term plans and flexible month-to-month plans throughout Texas. Check out our Plans and Pricing for specific electricity plans in your city.
Electricity rates can vary by zip code, but the difference is usually small. The TDU fees, which are determined by your local utility, are where you see the largest difference across cities. At 4Change Energy, we strive to give you the best possible pricing for your area. Visit our Plans and Pricing to get started.
While everyone’s situation is different, we typically recommend a 12 month plan to customers planning to stay in Texas. The 12 month fixed rate plan offers price stability for an entire year, and saves you the time you would have spent chasing energy prices. Plus, if you move we’ll move your service as well.
It’s simple. Go to the Plans and Pricing page, find a low-rate plan, and sign up. You don’t even have to contact your old electricity provider—we’ll handle everything for you.
You may have typed your address in a different format than we have saved online. To find your address, begin typing it and select it from the dropdown menu to continue.
Still can’t find it? It’s possible that your address is new construction and hasn’t been loaded into the statewide system yet OR we may not serve your area at this time. Feel free to call us at (855) 784-2426 (Mon-Fri 7am-8pm, Sat 8am-5pm CST) if you need help enrolling or to confirm your service area.
Since some zip codes fall into two TDUs, we've created an easy process for split TDU enrollments. If you're in a split TDU zip code, you'll be prompted to select your TDU, and if you're uncertain of your TDU simply select "I don't know" to continue with your enrollment. We'll let you know if anything needs to be updated after enrollment.
We only check your utility payment history. Even if your utility payment history isn’t ideal, we may still be able to serve you by assessing a one-time refundable deposit. You’ll get your deposit back—with interest—after 12 months of timely consecutive payments or upon leaving us with good payment history. See your TOSA for more details.
We do a basic utility payment history check and we receive a pass or fail notification from the credit bureau. If you were assessed a deposit, there’s no need to worry. Your deposit is fully refundable—with interest—after 12 months of timely consecutive payments.
Keep in mind that your deposit does not count as a pre-payment and may not be used toward future monthly 4Change Energy electricity bills.
In most cases, yes! You will get your deposit back—with interest—as provided below.
Generally speaking, no. For certain customers, yes. Here’s a snippet from our Terms of Service Agreement (TOSA) specifically identifying customers entitled to a waiver of a deposit assessed at enrollment:
You may avoid paying a deposit if (1) you submit a payment history letter from your previous electric service provider confirming two years of service and your positive payment record for 12 consecutive months, (2) you have a satisfactory credit rating, (3) you are at least 65 years of age and do not have a delinquent balance with your current electric service provider, (4) you submit proof that you are medically indigent, or (5) you have been a victim of family violence and can provide a certification letter by the Texas Council on Family Violence. Please contact us if you believe you may be eligible for one of these options.
If you establish satisfactory credit with us by making timely payments for 12 consecutive months, then we will apply the deposit plus accrued interest to your account. If you do not establish satisfactory credit with us during the time you receive service from us, then we will apply the deposit plus accrued interest against the outstanding balance on your final bill. We will bill you for any remaining balance and the bill will be due upon receipt. We will refund any credit balance to you or transfer the credit balance to your new REP, at your request and with your new REP’s consent.
Not in most cases. However, qualifying low-income customers are eligible to pay deposits over two equal installments.
If you have been assessed a deposit and opt not to pay it, you are not eligible for service with 4Change Energy.
During enrollment, you can add separate service and billing addresses. This will not affect your bills, which will still be sent to your email address on file.
Yes! Log in to your account, click Manage My Service, and then click Add Another Home. You’ll enroll your new address the same way you enrolled the first one.
A secondary account holder is someone you authorize to act on your behalf for decisions regarding your account with us. You do not have to add one if you do not want to. A secondary account holder can perform all functions that the primary account holder can perform except for adding or deleting secondary account holders.
No. You cannot transfer your account to another person, even if they are already a secondary account holder.
We won’t charge you a fee to move-in. The Public Utility Commission (PUC) allows your TDU to charge a connection fee for move-ins. To consolidate what you owe at enrollment, we add the TDU’s fee to your first bill from us.
We won’t charge you a fee to move-in. By selecting same-day or next-day service, the Public Utility Commission (PUC) allows your TDU to charge a connection fee for priority move-ins. To consolidate what you owe at enrollment, we add the TDU’s fee to your first bill from us.
