Types of electricity plans in Brownsville
Consumers can choose their electric provider as well as the type of plan that best fits them. In Brownsville, some of the most common plans are fixed-rate, variable-rate, and no-deposit plans.
- Fixed-rate plan: With a fixed-rate plan, you get to enter a contract and lock in a low rate for the next twelve months or longer. This cost is not affected by the fluctuations of the market price. However, if you break the contract, you may have to pay an early termination fee (ETF).
- Variable-rate plan: For more flexibility, choose a variable-rate plan. You can switch plans whenever you would like because there is no contract. Your rate is subject to monthly market price fluctuations.
- No-deposit plan: Certain providers require a deposit before you can sign up for a new plan, especially if your credit score is on the lower side. However, some plans, such as prepaid plans, let you pay upfront for the energy. These are often called no-deposit plans.
