Types of electricity plans in Cedar Hill
Not only can you choose your own energy provider in Cedar Hill, but you can also choose the type of plan you want. Below are some of the plans available to help you choose the best one for you:
- Fixed-rate plan: When you sign up for a fixed-rate energy plan, you enter into a contract for 12, 24, or 36 months. With a contract, you can lock in your rate, meaning your electricity rate won’t fluctuate with the energy market. This type of plan makes it easier to budget since you know your rate won’t change. However,you might pay an early termination fee (ETF) if you end your contract early.
- Variable-rate plan: Unlike a fixed-rate plan, a variable-rate plan doesn’t involve a contract or a locked-in rate. Instead, your rate depends on the current energy market and could fluctuate each month. There’s less stability with this type of plan, but you have the benefit of energy savings when rates are low. Additionally, there is no contract so you can switch plans when you want.
- No-deposit plan: Many providers require a deposit for your energy plan if you don’t have satisfactory credit. One way to get around the deposit is with a no-deposit energy plan, which doesn’t require a deposit or a credit check. A prepaid energy plan is a popular type of no-deposit plan where you pay for your electricity upfront based on what you expect to use.
