Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign-up for service with 4Change Energy?

Simple! Enter your Houston zip code in the box above. We’ll show you plans in your area, and you pick the best fit. Once you choose your low rate, we’ll need some basic information—like your name and address. Then you’ll choose a charity.

How do I switch my electricity to 4Change Energy from my current provider?

The sign-up process is basically the same for everyone. We’ll ask during enrollment if you’re switching service providers.

What do I do when I’m ready to move?

We’ll take care of you. If you move to another home within our service area, we’ll get you set up on a new plan (with no additional fees). If you move out of our service area, we’ll waive the cancellation fee when you provide proof of your move.

Which plans are available in my area?

Rates and plans vary slightly by area, which is determined by your geographic location or zip code. At 4Change Energy, we strive to give you the best possible pricing and tailor it to your area. Enter your Houston zip code above to see how much you could be saving.

Which plan should I pick?

We recommend locking in one of our low rates for as long as possible. We offer 12- and 24-month terms, which guarantee you lower-than-normal rates during the hot summer months. However, some customers enjoy the flexibility of a shorter term—or our month-to-month plan. These plans are popular among customers who are servicing rental properties or are planning to move out of state soon.

Why do rates change from city to city?

Our energy charges are really about the same! The Transmission Distribution Utility (or TDU) fees, which are determined by your local utility company, are where you see the largest difference across cities. For the Houston area, you’re likely covered by CenterPoint Energy or Texas-New Mexico Power Company.

What if I don't have the best credit history? Can I still get service from 4Change Energy?

Yes! At 4Change Energy, we realize there are bumps in the road. If you don’t have sufficient credit or your credit score isn’t ideal, you’ll just need to provide a deposit. Fortunately, after 12 months of timely payments, you get that deposit back (with interest!). See your TOSA for more details.

How can I lower my bill even further?

For each friend, neighbor, family member, coworker or acquaintance you refer to 4Change Energy who enrolls with your unique referral link, we’ll give you a $25 VISA gift card. Even better? There is no limit to the number of referrals you can submit and we'll send your referral $25, too.
