Types of plans in Temple

When shopping for Temple electricity rates, you have several plan types to choose from. The amount you pay per kilowatt-hour usage may remain the same or vary by month. You may even be able to prepay. Finding cheap electricity in Temple is easier with so many options. 

The three major plans you will come across are:

  • Fixed rates – Consumers in a fixed-rate plan are charged the same rates for a specific period. This period might range from three months to as much as three or more years. If the energy costs go up or down within the contract period, the amount you pay per kilowatt-hour is not affected. Some providers switch your account to a variable rate plan once your contract lapses. As this tends to be more costly, be sure to research and shop around for an affordable alternative plan before your fixed-rate contract lapses.
  • Variable rates – Also referred to as variable price plans, variable rates fluctuate depending on the wholesale energy market. One advantage of being on a variable plan is that you are not tied to a contract. You can choose a different energy supplier without incurring termination charges.
  • No deposit – Through prepaid energy plans, consumers pay for their electricity before using it. You only need to activate your service by making an initial payment with cash or credit card to use a no-deposit electricity plan. The supplier will then manage your payment and routinely inform you of your energy consumption. These plans help consumers who otherwise would be forced to pay large deposits because of less-than-good credit.

Temple green energy plans

If you are keen on reducing your carbon footprint by using renewable energy in your home or business, there are several options in Temple.

Confused about deregulation?

Electricity rates in Texas are a little different from most other states. Temple residents benefit from a deregulated energy market, which means that energy users have the flexibility and control to choose the best energy plans to power their homes or businesses and even switch plans.
