Types of plans

When you sign up for your electricity plan, you’ll have a few options to choose from:

  • Fixed-rate plans: When you sign up for a fixed-rate energy plan, you lock in a particular price per kilowatt-hour in your contract. No matter what happens with the energy market, your rate won’t change from one month to the next. This type of plan is perfect for those who want the stability of paying the same rate each month. But keep in mind these plans usually come with early termination fees, and you won’t be able to take advantage of seasonal lows.
  • Variable-rate plans: A variable-rate energy plan is usually a month-to-month plan where your rate each month is dependent on the current energy market. When demand is low and the market rate is down, your price per kilowatt-hour will be lower. But during high-demand seasons, you can expect your bill to increase.
  • No-deposit plan: Most electricity plans require an upfront deposit, but there are a few ways around it. First, if you have a good credit score, you may not be required to pay a deposit for your plan. If you’d prefer to avoid a credit check altogether, you can opt for a prepaid or no-deposit plan, which requires you to pay for your electricity upfront.
