Types of plans

As you browse electricity rates in Texas, you’ll see that you have the power to choose from fixed-rate and variable-rate plans. Here’s a look at how the two plan types differ. 

  • Fixed-rate plans require a contract (usually 12, 24, or 36 months) but allow you to lock in a certain electricity rate for the duration of your contract. These plans are good if you’re looking for consistency in your monthly energy bill and you’re willing to sign an agreement with a provider. 
  • Variable-rate plans are generally month-to-month plan. That gives you flexibility with your electricity provider. But variable-rate plans don’t let you lock in a predetermined energy rate, so your bill could fluctuate each month even if your usage remains constant.

In addition to these plan types, you might also see no-deposit plans offered by certain providers. In Texas, many electricity providers require a deposit and credit check before your service begins. However, some suppliers offer no-deposit plans for people who don’t have stellar credit or who can’t afford a deposit.

Green energy plans

These days, more consumers are looking for green energy options to reduce their impact on the environment. As a result, electricity providers have begun to offer green energy plans or add-ons. In McAllen, green energy providers include Gexa Energy and Green Mountain Energy.
