Types of plans

Not all electricity plans are the same. When you shop around for your next plan, you’ll have the option to choose between a fixed-rate, variable-rate, or no-deposit plan.

  • Fixed-rate plan: A fixed-rate energy plan is just like it sounds — you pay a fixed price per kilowatt-hour for your entire contract. Your rate won’t change from one month to the next due to changes in the energy market. Fixed-rate plans usually have contracts ranging from 12-36 months, and you may be subject to early termination fees if you leave early.
  • Variable-rate plan: Unlike fixed-rate plans, variable-rate plans don’t have contacts. You pay month-to-month, and your rate in any given month is based on the current energy market. During some months, you’ll see your rate increase, but you’ll see it go down in other months. Because these plans are month-to-month, there are typically no early termination fees, so you can switch to another plan at any point.
  • No-deposit plan: Most energy plans require an upfront deposit. When you sign up for your plan, your new supplier will run a credit check, and those with good credit may not be charged a deposit. If you have poor credit or would just prefer to avoid paying a deposit, you can sign up for a prepaid no-deposit energy plan.
