About 4Change Energy

You could say 4Change Energy has been around – the Dallas-based retail electric provider has been offering Texas electricity plans since 2012. It is part of Texas-based energy giant Vistra Energy. It prides itself on offering residents a variety of options – fixed-rate, variable and green plans – and terms ranging from 12 to 36 months.

One thing that sets 4Change apart is its connection to communities it serves across Texas. The company donates 4 percent of profits annually to charitable organizations, including the American Red Cross, Heroes for Children, and Feeding Texas. 4Change service areas include the following cities:

What’s the best 4Change Energy plan?

The best 4Change Energy plan is the one that suits your Texas electricity needs. But here are some popular plans and key details about them:

Mass Saver 12: Customers earn a $90 bill credit if they use at least 1,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) in a month. This plan also offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.

Eco Saver Plus 12: This plan caters to households wishing to reduce their carbon footprint. It is sourced with 100% Texas wind power. Customers can earn up to $50 in monthly bill credits.

Generous Saver Plus 36: Where this plan stands out is its rate stability for 36 months – important in a time of a volatile energy market. Again, customers can earn up to $50 in monthly bill credits.

Is 4Change Energy a good company?

Atlas rates providers it works with to make sure customers have insight into their options, awarding providers up to five stars for excellence. How did 4Change fare?

4Change Energy rating: 3.8 stars

4Change wins high marks for its accreditation from the Better Business Bureau, which comes with an A+ grade from the organization. It also scores highly for its satisfaction guarantee, years in business, and usage alerts. However, it received a 1 (out of a maximum 5) on the most recent Complaint Scorecard published by the Public Utilities Commission of Texas.

Which provider has the cheapest Texas energy plans?

That depends. Cheap electricity rates don’t always mean cheap Texas electricity bills. That’s because Texas energy providers display rates at three usage levels – 500, 1,000, and 2,000 kWh. Even between those levels, bill credits can sometimes apply.

Confusing? Yes. That’s where Atlas can help. We plug your usage into our custom algorithm to determine the best plan for your energy consumption throughout the year. Texans use only half as much energy in April as they do in August. Atlas takes the long view to find plans on the value you’ll get from them before we issue any recommendations.
