Green Energy-24 Champion's Green 24 month plan is predictable and uses 100% green energy, so it's great for the environmently conscious customer. There aren't many cons, honestly. It is a green plan so it is more exensive than regular electricity plans.
Free Weekends-24 This is a good rate for a free weekend plan. For a time of use plan, this is good for home usage, but not for electric vehicles.

Champ Saver-24

  • Our Rating: 5 / 5 stars
  • Our Review: Champions plans are all pretty similar, and their 24 month plan is more of the same. Champion plans are flat and have similar kWh rates across the three different usage thresholds, which means that customers won't have any big bill surprises in store if they use 500 kWh, 1500 kWh, or 2500 kWh. The plan has a pretty competitive energy charge, which also keeps your monthly bills low. The plan has no monthly recurring or base charge, and it has a cancellation fee of $250. So be sure not to cancel your conract after only a year. Also, most importantly, this plan is an All Included deal. So when you're looking at the EFL, you will see that the kWh rate you see advertised includes all of the TDU transportation fees, as well. Which is why the rate might look high, but the bills are reasonable.
  • Pros: Champion's 24 month plan is predictable, pretty affordable, and comes with no surprises.
  • Cons: Not the absolute cheapest plan out there, but not the most expensive.
  • Plan Type: Fixed Rate
  • Term: 24 Months

Champ Saver-12

  • Our Rating: 4 / 5 stars
  • Our Review: Champions plans are all pretty similar, and their 12 month plan is no different. Champion plans are flat and have similar kWh rates across the three different usage thresholds, which means that customers won't have any big bill surprises in store if they use 500 kWh, 1500 kWh, or 2500 kWh. The plan has a pretty competitive energy charge, which also keeps your monthly bills low. The plan has no monthly recurring or base charge, and it has a cancellation fee of $150. So be sure not to cancel your conract a month early. Also, most importantly, this plan is an All Included deal. So when you're looking at the EFL, you will see that the kWh rate you see advertised includes all of the TDU transportation fees, as well. Which is why the rate might look high, but the bills are actually fairly low.
  • Pros: Champion's 12 month plan is predictable, pretty affordable, and comes with no surprises.
  • Cons: Not the absolute cheapest plan out there, but not the most expensive.
  • Plan Type: Fixed Rate
  • Term: 12 Months

EV Saver-12

  • Our Rating: 3 / 5 stars
  • Our Review: As far as EV charing plans go, Champion's is pretty good. The Energy Charge drops to close to half where it from the regular usage window, while some drop completely to zero. But other plans have higher energy charges to start, so like most other Champion plans, it ends up evening out pretty fairly. Other than that, the big thing with this plan is the charging window starts at 10 PM, while many others start at or after Midnight. This could be appealing to anyone who wants to start charging earlier, or who gets up really early for work. Other than that, the rates are flat, so there won't be bill surprises, and it's a 12 month plan.
  • Pro: Early EV charging window, no base monthly charge Cons: Not the cheapest Energy Charge discount in the market.
  • Plan Type: Fixed Rate
  • Term: 12 Months

Green Energy-24

  • Our Rating: 3 / 5 stars
  • Our Review: Champion's plans are all very open and easy to understand, and their Green 24 plan is more of the same, just with green energy for the customers. Champion plans are flat and have similar kWh rates across the three different usage thresholds, which means that customers won't have any big bill surprises in store if they use 500 kWh, 1500 kWh, or 2500 kWh. The plan has a pretty competitive energy charge compared to other green energy plans, which also keeps your monthly bills affordable. There is no monthly recurring or base charge, and it has a cancellation fee of $250. That's a hefty fee becuase it's a longer plan, so definitely don't cancel it halfway through your contract term. Also, most importantly, this plan is an All Included deal. So when you're looking at the EFL, you will see that the kWh rate you see advertised includes all of the TDU transportation fees, as well. Which is why the rate might look high, but the bills are actually pretty good for a green energy plan.
  • Pros: Champion's Green 24 month plan is predictable and uses 100% green energy, so it's great for the environmently conscious customer.
  • Cons: There aren't many cons, honestly. It is a green plan so it is more exensive than regular electricity plans.
  • Plan Type: Fixed Rate
  • Term: 24 Months

Free Weekends-24

  • Our Rating: 2 / 5 stars
  • Our Review: Champions Free Weekend plan is what we call a Time of Use plan. We call it this because rates are different depending on the certain times you're using the electricity. Also, the advertised rates are based on the assumption that 70% of electricity is used doing the week, and 30% over the weekend when it's "free." So it's it's important to understnd the energy charge during the week is higher, and during the weekend it's zero. The weekend in this plan is defined as 12:01 AM saturday morning to 11:59 PM Sunday night. So not Friday night y'all, push those video game or movie marathons to Saturdays. Other than that, the plan is flat across all usage thresholds, so there won't be many bill surprises in regards to varying usage.
  • Pros: This is a good rate for a free weekend plan.
  • Cons: For a time of use plan, this is good for home usage, but not for electric vehicles.
  • Plan Type: Fixed Rate
  • Term: 24 Months

Plan Features

One size does NOT fit all. You have a lot of choices of plan types here in Texas. We've grouped up the plans from Champion Energy Services so you can shop for just the kinds of features you want.

Fixed Rates

These are the most common types of plans and provide the least surprises on your bills. When you use more, you'll pay more per month, and when you use less, you'll pay less per month. However, your average cost per kWh will likely remain fairly stable compared to bill credit plans.

Plan name Term Rates
Champ Saver-24 24 14.4¢ - 16.0¢
Champ Saver-12 12 14.7¢ - 16.3¢
Green Energy-24 24 15.3¢ - 16.9¢
EV Saver-12 12 10.2¢ - 15.0¢

Bill Credit

These plans will usually give a credit on your bill when your usage falls within certain ranges. If you use more or less, your rate per kWh could be significantly higher than the rate you saw when you signed up. Be sure to read the EFL carefully and understand your usage before ordering these kinds of plans. You can find out more in our blog article about bill credit electricity plans.

Champion Energy Services does not have any plans in our category here, so below you will find some alternatives which we have reviewed.

TXU Energy Solar Saver 12 12 17.5¢ - 24.6¢
TXU Energy Clear Deal 12 12 16.9¢ - 21.3¢

Even Billing Plans

These plans will usually charge a fixed dollar amount on your bill when your usage falls within certain ranges or tiers. If you use more (or less) than the tier allows, your bill will jump up or down by a certain dollar amount. Be sure to read the EFL carefully and understand your usage before ordering these kinds of plans. These plans can be a good choice for someone who wants their bill to be the same exact amount each month.

Free Energy

These plans will cost much less but only during certain parts of the day or week. If you can adjust your usage to fall into the lower-cost periods, these can be a good choice. If you don't want to put off running appliances until certain parts of the day, these kinds of plans are not for you.

Plan name Term Rates
Free Weekends-24 24 13.2¢ - 15.3¢

Green Energy

Most providers offer some kind of green or renewable energy plan. These plans can help offset your carbon footprint which helps us all!

Plan name Term Rates
Green Energy-24 24 15.3¢ - 16.9¢

Solar Buyback

If you have rooftop solar, you can benefit from a specific solar-buyback program, where the retailer monitors the amount of electricity your panels are feeding to the grid and pays you for each kWh you provide.

EV Charging

EVs are great, and because the charging cycles often happen during non-peak-load hours, some providers give a much lower rate for usage during those times. Remember, you'll have to coordinate your charging schedule to take advantage of these low rates.

No Deposit

For credit-challenged consumers who don't want to put down a deposit to begin service, a prepaid (no deposit) plan can make a lot of sense. Instead of paying for your energy after you've used it, you pay before you use it. To start service, you'll need to load somewhere between $25 to $75 on your account. You'll typically pay more per kWh, but these plans usually have helpful apps and notices to help you manage your electricity usage and keep your costs under control.

Also known as no-contract plans, month-to-month plans don't require any long term commitment from you.

Typically this type of plan will come with a higher rate that can vary from one month to the next, but in return you'll not be charged an early termination fee if you cancel service.

Champion Energy Services does not currently have any plans with a term in this range. Below are some alternative providers who do.

Residential Electricity

For Apartments

Apartments typically use anywhere from 500-800 kWh per month. When apartment dwellers shop for electricity, they should focus on fixed-rate plans with low monthly recurring charges, and pay particular attention to the 500 kWh rate on the EFL. Also, most apartment consumers should match their contract term to their lease term so they don't get hit with early termination fees.

Plan name Term Rates
Champ Saver-12 12 14.7¢ - 16.3¢
Champ Saver-24 24 14.4¢ - 16.0¢

For Typical Homes

Most medium size houses use about 1100-1700 kWh per month. Consumers in this group should use the 1000 kWh rate on the EFL as a guide for the actual rate they will end up paying. Bill Credit plans can make sense for these users, as well as free energy plans if you can move about 30% of your electricity usage to the off-peak times. The monthly recurring charge is not as important as it does not contribute a significant portion of your monthly bill. 12-24 month plans usually make sense for people in typical houses.

For Large Homes

Customers in large homes probably use 1800-3500 kWh per month, especially if you have a hot tub, pool, electric vehicle, multiple air conditioners, and the like. Focus on the 2000 kWh usage rates shown in the EFL. If you look at a bill credit plan, make sure the credit does not go away if your usage goes over certain thresholds. Generally, longer term plans of 24-36 months are best for large consumers to smooth out price volatility.

How To

Place An Order

Switching to Champion Energy Services is easy and only takes a few minutes. Click on the plan or click the orange 'Check Availability' button, and you can complete the order online in our secure cart.

To order by phone, contact Champion Energy Services at 855-768-3637

Start Service

Credit Check

Generally, all providers in Texas will perform a soft credit check when you place your order to determine if they require a deposit to start service. This is a 'soft' credit check and does NOT count as a 'hard check' on your credit report and will not affect your credit score. Most providers require your social security number, and perhaps a birthdate to process your order. Some providers can use alternate forms of identification such as a drivers license.

Deposits

Deposit amounts vary by provider, typically running somewhere between $150 and $450. There are certain cases where the deposit requirement can be wiaved, but you will have to provide additional documentation. Once the deposit is waived or paid, your service will start. You will earn a small amount of interest on your deposit. After 12 months, if your payments have all been made on-time, the provider will usually credit your deposit to your account balance. If you have completed the contract and do not owe the provider an outstanding balance, they will refund your deposit by check.

Switching Providers

Switching your electricity supplier in Texas is really easy. You simply place an order online for the provider of your choice.

During the order process, you will be given the opportunity to choose a date for the switch to occur. Generally, you can switch on the next business day, or perhaps the current business day if it is before noon or so.

If you don't select a switch date, then the switch will occur at the convenience of the utility company, which will likely be within 3-5 days.

You do not need to contact your current supplier. All the arrangements will be handled by your new supplier. For more details, you can use our blog article on "Switching your electricity supplier".

Switch-Hold

A 'Switch Hold' on your meter means that the current supplier is preventing the meter from switching to another provider.

This is allowed by ERCOT so that people can't just run up a big bill with one provider, then switch to another provider and ditch the balance. Electric companies will typically lift the switch-hold automatically when the balance is paid.

Moving In

Starting service is not much harder than switching. If the address you are moving into has had electrical service, you'll simply place an online order and select a date you wish to begin service. Usually, you can start the next business day.

However, if there is an issue with the meter at your new address, or if the meter has not been installed, it may take several days to get a crew out to rectify the problem.

If you think there is a potential problem with your meter at the new address, you should contact the supplier you have signed up with. They can contact ERCOT and the utility company to verify what is needed in your specific case.

Transfer Service

If you move to another residence, you can generally transfer your existing plan to your new address.

Transferring service will help you avoid paying an early termination fee (ETF).

Simply contact your current provider and they can handle it over the phone. Sometimes, if you are moving to a different area of the state, your rate might change by a couple cents up or down. This is not the fault of the supplier, it's because in different areas of the state, the companies that handle the poles and wires charge different amounts based on local infrastructure costs.

Renew My Contract

If you are on a fixed length contract, the provider will contact you several weeks before the end of your term. Generally, they will present a few options for you to renew your contract.

If the offers that your exsiting provider has shown you are unsatisfactory, you can always switch to someone else. If you intend to do this, you should know your contract end date, and set your switch date to the new provider on or after that date, otherwise you could be charged an early termination fee (ETF). This could be as little as $20, or as high as $250 or even more, so you should select your switch date carefully.

Cancel Service

You can cancel your service with Champion Energy Services by contacting them and requesting what they will call a 'move out'.

A 'move-out' means that Champion Energy Services will inform ERCOT that they will no longer provide electricity for your meter. If the 'move-out' day comes, and you have not signed up with another provider, your electricity will get shut off.

If you cancel service before the end of your contract, you will likely be charged a cancellation fee.

Disconnect & Reconnect

A provider may disconnect your service for non-payment. They are required to give you notice. They are allowed to charge fees related to sending a disconnect notice, actually disconnecting your service, and reconnecting your service.

Report Outage

If your power is out, you should NOT contact Champion Energy Services. Instead, you should contact the company which is responsible for maintaining the infrastructure, poles and wires to your home.

Billing

Estimate My Usage

We've created quite a few articles to help you understand electrical usage.

Understand Your Bill

Early Termination Fee (ETF)

If you switch away from Champion Energy Services you will likely be charged an ETF (also known as a cancellation fee) unless you are on a month-to-month (no contract) plan.

These cancellation charges are allowed because Champion Energy Services has probably purchased electricity on the wholesale market to cover your expected usage, and if you leave, they are stuck with excess power that they have already paid for.

Late Charges

If you don't pay your bill by the due date, the provider is allowed to impose a late fee on your account. The late fee is limited to a percentage of your outstanding balance.

kWh (Kilowatt-Hours)

A 'kWh' or 'kilowatt-hour' is a measure of electricity usage. One 'kWh' is equal to a 1000 watt load operating for 1 hour. For example, a hair-dryer uses about 1200 watts of energy. If you divide the watts by 1000, you get kilowatts, so our hair dryer is using 1.2 kilowatts when running. Multiply 1.2 kW X 1 hour = 1.2 kWh. If your per-kWh electriciy rate is 15 cents, then running your hair dryer for an hour costs about 15 X 1.2 = 18 cents.

Average Bill

Most customers in Texas use about 1050-1400 kWh of electricity per month. According to various sources, the average electricity rate in Texas is about 11 cents. This would make the average Texas electricity bill about $115 to $154 per month.

Of course, if you have a higher electrical load than normal you will use more energy, and thus your bills can easily be higher than that. High load items would be things like a swimming pool or electric heat in the winter.

Your home size will have an impact on your usage. A smaller 600 sqft apartment might use 500-600 kWh, while an expansive 3,000 sqft. home could easily use 2,200 to 3,000 kWh.

Average Rate

Your bill will likely show an 'average rate per kWh' or some variation of that. The average rate is the total of your bill (including all fees and taxes) divided by your kWh usage. Generally, your average rate per kWh will be slightly higher when you use less electricity, because there are monthly fixed fees that don't change, so when you use less, the average goes up a bit. Don't confuse 'average rate' with your 'energy charge', which is the amount you are being charged specifically for the electricity you use, and is separate from fixed monthly customer fees.

Bill Period or Cycle

The dates this bill covers. Your Texas utility company will read the meter at their discretion. This will not always be a month or 30 days. If you are on a plan that has "monthly" fees, that fee will appear on your bill, regardless of how many days were within the period.

Energy Rate vs. Average Rate

the 'Energy Rate' is the price in cents that you pay your electricity provider for the actual electricity that you consumed. The 'Average Rate' is the total you paid for electricity service (including all TDSP fees, bill credits, taxes, etc) divided by the number of kWhs you used that month.

ESI ID (Electric Service Identifier)

This is the unique identifier of the electricity meter for your address. If you have multiple meters (one for the house, one for the shed) you will have multiple ESI IDs. Each ESI ID will generally get it's own bill, unless your current provider offers some sort of combined billing.

TDSP Fees
These are fees charged by your utility, and are present regardless of which electricity provider you have chosen.
Fees are charged from the utility and are passed on to the retail electricity provider

TDSP fees can be a fixed charged per bill, or a variable charge based on how much electricity you used during that period. There are a few providers that offer "bundled" rates, which include these fees in their Energy Charge. In bundled rates, your actual average rate will not change during the course of your contract (assuming the plan has no monthly charge).

Some of the TDSP fees you may be charged are:

  • Customer Charge
  • Distribution Cost Recovery Factor
  • Distribution System Charge
  • Energy Efficiency Cost Recovery Factor
  • Metering Charge
  • Nuclear Decommissioning Fee
  • PUC Assessment
  • System Restoration Charge
  • Transition Charge (1-5)
  • Transmission Cost Recovery Factor
  • Transmission System Charge

The TDSP fees charged and their amounts will vary depending on which TDSP services your area. As of May 2018, Oncor has the lowest per-bill charge at $5.25, while AEP-North has the highest, at $10.53 per bill. TNMP has the lowest average usage charges, at around 3.3¢/kWh, and CenterPoint is the highest, around 4.1¢/kWh.

Electric companies generally have the same energy charge applied, no-matter which TDSP the plan is in. The difference in the TDSP fees are the reason the same plan can cost around a penny higher in CenterPoint vs TNMP.

FAQ

What do customers think about Champion Energy Services?

That depends on who you ask. There will always be someone who feels wronged by a company, no matter how good they actually are. The average Champion Energy Services customer review is 3.2 / 5 stars. Keep in mind, consumers will go out of their way to complain far more often than they will to give praise.

About Champion Energy

Founded in 2005 and headquartered in Houston, Champion Energy is one of the few energy providers in the industry that has never been affiliated with a utility company. While the company expanded its retail energy to the northeastern states, the company remains Texas-centric; serving about 2.5 million customers most of which are in Texas. In 2015, Champion Energy joined Houston-based Calpine Corporation, the largest generator of electricity from natural gas and geothermal resources in the United States.

Champion Energy's long-standing reputation for customer satisfaction has earned it several consecutive J.D. Power "Highest in Residential Customer Satisfaction with Retail Electric Service" awards. Texas Electricity Ratings ranks Champion Energy as one of its Gold Tier Providers. Both Calpine and Champion Energy help the Texas communities they serve through donations to food banks and charities across the state. Champion Energy is also well respected for providing annual scholarships to Texas high school seniors seeking to attend a Texas college program.

Champion Energy In The Community

Champion Energy helps the Texas communities it serve through donations to food banks and charities across the state. The company has long history of supporting Houston charitable organizations, including the Ronald MacDonald House of Houston, the Boys and Girls Club Greater Houston, and several others. Champion Energy and it's parent company, Calpine, has donated a total donating $200,000 to the Houston Food Bank and $100,000 to food banks and charities in Texas.
