About Gexa Energy

Gexa Energy has been around, operating in the Texas electricity market since 2002. That’s the same year the state deregulated energy, giving customers the power to choose a provider. But longevity doesn’t mean the Houston-based company isn’t innovative. It announced in 2019 that all Gexa Energy electricity plans would be powered by 100 percent renewable energy at no additional cost to consumers.

Gexa Energy is a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, which currently generates more than 17,000 megawatts of wind and solar generation in North America. It offers great residential and business energy plans in Texas. Service areas include:

What’s the best Gexa Energy plan?

Gexa electricity rates vary according to the company’s plans. Here are some of the most popular and key information about them:

  • Gexa Saver Deluxe 12. Customers will receive a $100 bill credit every month their total usage is between 1,000 and 2,000 kilowatt hours (kWh).
  • Gexa Superb Saver 12. This plan is geared toward households with high usage. Customers receive a $50 bill credit when monthly usage is between 1,500 and 1,999 kWh and a $100 bill credit when usage is between 2,000 and 2,500 kWh.
  • Gexa Saver Freedom 36. This plan offers energy charge security for three years. It also features 100 percent renewable energy.

All plans might not be available in your area. Your usage will determine the best Gexa Energy plan for your household. That’s where Atlas comes in.

Is Gexa Energy a good company?

Atlas rates providers it works with to make sure customers have great options, awarding providers up to five stars for excellence. How did Gexa Energy fare?

Gexa Energy rating: 3.8 stars

Gexa wins high marks for its A+ grade and accreditation from the Better Business Bureau, 60-day satisfaction guarantee, access to usage alerts, and online bill pay. It received a 1 (out of 5) on the most recent Public Utilities Commission of Texas Provider Complaint Scorecard. Another area of concern includes lack of online chat customer service.

Which provider has the cheapest Texas electricity rates?

That’s a tricky question. Cheap rates don’t always translate to low bills – Texas electricity providers display tiered electricity rates at 500, 1,000, and 2,000 kWh. Within those tiers, bill credits can apply for some levels of electricity consumption.

That’s where Atlas comes in. We plug your usage into our custom algorithm to find the best plan for your usage throughout the year. For example, Texans use more than twice as much electricity on average in August than they do in April. We take the long view to evaluate plans on the value they convey and present you with recommendations.
