While you can choose the company that supplies the electricity to your home, your local electric utility will still deliver the service and maintain the infrastructure. If you experience a power outage, you can contact Oncor, the utility for Plano:

  • Filling out the “report an outage” form on its website

Types of plans

When you shop for your new electricity plan, you’ll have multiple types of plans to choose from. Here are some of the most popular:

  • Fixed-rate plan: A fixed-rate energy plan is one where you lock into a contract, and you pay the same electricity supply rates each month. You’re protected from fluctuations in the energy market for the entirety of your contract. Of course, the downside is that you end up paying higher rates than others when the market rate decreases.
  • Variable-rate plan: A variable-rate electricity plan is one where the rate fluctuates over time. You might pay a different rate from one month to the next, as your rate is tied to the current energy market. When the market rate goes down, you save money. But you could end up paying higher rates when the market goes up.
  • No-deposit plan: Some electricity plans in Texas require an upfront deposit, especially from customers with credit issues. No-deposit plans allow you to skip the deposit. Some of these plans are available only to borrowers with good credit, while others allow you to skip the credit check altogether, such as in the case of a prepaid plan.
  • Prepaid plan: A prepaid plan is a type of no-deposit plan where you pay for your electricity usage upfront. You decide how much electricity you’re likely to use, and that’s how much you pay for. Should your usage run higher than expected, you’ll be notified to add more money to your account.
  • Green energy plan: More and more consumers are making the switch to green energy. Texas is a leader in renewable energy, so Plano residents will have an easy time finding a green energy plan.
