Learn about Friendswood, TX, electric rates

With a warm and humid climate, Friendswood experiences consistent hot summers and mild winters. This is an important fact for residents shopping for electricity in Friendswood to remember. If you know how much energy you consume each month, you can make a better informed decision when it comes to selecting from one of the many Friendswood energy plans.

The next thing for residents to determine is what type of supply plan will work best for their situation. This means figuring out if you should sign up for a fixed-rate supply plan or a variable-rate supply plan.

Fixed-rate supply plans give residents the comfort of price protection and a more stable energy rate. With a fixed supply rate, you will sign a contract and secure an energy supply rate for a selected term. Throughout that term, you will keep the same supply rate. This is a safe option for most residents in Friendswood, especially if you own your place of residence and plan to stay there for a while.

Variable-rate supply plans allow residents to take advantage of market-price lows when the price of energy one month is lower than the previous month. However, variable supply rates can also rise from month to month, offering less price stability than fixed-rate plans. Variable-rate supply plans might be a good idea for those who keep a close watch on the energy market and can switch to a fixed-rate plan when they see prices steadily increase or at market-average lows.
