Types of plans

There are many types of plans to choose from when selecting an energy supplier. Some of the most common include:

  • Fixed-rate plans: When you sign up for an electricity plan, you’ll choose between a fixed and variable-rate plan. With a fixed-rate plan, you pay the same rates for your electricity each month. It doesn’t matter if the market fluctuates — you lock your rate into your contract.
  • Variable-rate plans: Variable-rate plans are entirely dependent on the market. Unlike a fixed-rate plan, you don’t lock in your price. Instead, your electricity rate rises and falls with the market. Sometimes you’ll pay more, and sometimes less.
  • No-deposit plans: Some electricity plans require residents to pay a deposit upfront. If you prefer to avoid a deposit, you may sign up for a no-deposit plan. Some no-deposit plans are available only to consumers with good credit scores, while others allow you to skip the credit check altogether.
  • Prepaid plans: A prepaid energy plan is a type of no-deposit plan where you pay for your electricity upfront. You estimate how much electricity you’ll use, and that’s all you pay for. Because you pay upfront, you don’t have to lock into a contract. But as a result, you may pay a higher rate.
  • Green energy plans: Texas is a leader in green energy, making it easy for the state’s residents to find suitable green energy plans. Many companies offer 100% green energy plans for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint and utilize renewable energy.
