“Electricity websites are confusing, especially in the DFW area. I appreciate that Quick [Electricity] is a “no gimmick” electric provider. I got a cheap rate and I continue to get notifications of any changes the company is going through unlike other prepaid lights companies in Fort Worth.

If consumers own a business, live or rent in the city, they can decide amongst Fort Worth electric rates in their ZIP code.
