When you start shopping electricity plans in Alvin, you’ll find a number of different options. To learn more about how to find the right energy plan, you can check out our energy buying guide. Here’s a quick overview of the main plan types you’ll encounter.
Choose a fixed-rate plan if you want to secure your Alvin electricity rate for an extended period. These plans are best for consumers who value stability and predictability in their energy bills. Your energy rates won’t change, but taxes and certain government fees could differ each month. Contracts run on average from 12 to 36 months, and you may be charged a fee if you end your contract early.
Unliked fixed-rate plans, the rates on these plans change each month based on the wholesale energy market. You can save on energy costs when wholesale rates are lower, but your rates could spike when demand goes up. That risk may be worth it if you want the flexibility to change plans anytime.
Prepaid & no-deposit plans
Consider a no-deposit plan if you don’t want to pay an extra fee before service begins. Prepaid plans are the most popular type of no-deposit plan, allowing you to pay for your service as you go. These are popular options for consumers who want to bypass a credit check and avoid the extra deposit before beginning service.
