More Plans with Bounce Energy
Gexa Energy and Bounce Energy offer relatively similar rates on a regular basis. What Gexa Energy lacks is the variety of plan choices for variable and month-to-month rate options. Bounce feels it would be better to present you a variety of plans so that you can find the one to best fit your preferences and situation. Moreover, customers appreciate that Bounce respects the customer's desire to "try out" a company with a very short-term commitment before making a longer-term investment. How many other companies out there offer you the chance to lock in a great rate for your energy in increments of 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24, or 36 months? Bounce also provides green fixed-rate plans for 6 and 12 months, as well as a few variable-rate plans that don'`t have contract obligations.

If You're Locked In a Fixed Rate Contract with Gexa Energy, You Do Have Options!
If you're in a contract with Gexa Energy, but you want to take advantage of our great low rates and superior rewards programs offered by Bounce Energy, try one of the 3 options below. All you'll need to know is the month in which your current contract ends, though it is also important to know the amount of your contract termination fee). Whether your contract ends in 30 days or 2 years from now, there's a way to switch.
Option 1: Your Contract Ends in Less Than 90 Days
You're able to switch to Bounce Energy once you're within 14 days of the end of your contract with Gexa Energy. You can schedule your electricity turn on with Bounce Energy 90 days in advance, so you can actually schedule your switch 104 days in advance of the end of your contract. Just make sure to select a date within the last 14 days of your contract.

Option 2: Your Contract Doesn't End Anytime Soon
If you signed up for a long term contract and the only way to get out of the contract is by paying a termination fee, you can use our Savings Tools to calculate the "value of switching". This tool can help you determine whether you should pay that termination fee.
For example, if your current rate with your current provider is 12.3¢ per kWh and you use 1,000 KWhs, you could use our tool to learn that switching to a Bounce plan would save you $306 per year. Even if you paid your current provider a termination fee of $150, you'd still be saving more than $150 during the course of the 1st year.*Calculate Your Savings
