Types of Richardson plans

When shopping for Richardson electricity rates from different energy suppliers, you will notice three main types of plans:

  • Fixed rates – These are among the most popular electricity plans across Texas. In a fixed-rate energy plan, your electricity provider agrees not to change your power rates for a specific period, usually three months to five years. However, taxes and fees can be added during the period.
  • Variable rates – In a variable-rate plan, the price you pay for your power usage depends on the current market rates. The factors that influence electricity prices include current supply and demand, weather conditions, and outdoor temperatures. Rates can go up from month-to-month.
  • No deposit – Providers use credit checks to determine whether customers must pay a deposit. One alternative to a deposit is a pre-paid plan. The consumer pays for monthly service up front and gets alerts if he or she needs to add money to the account.
