Because Texas deregulated its energy market two decades ago, Cleburne residents have the power to choose their electricity provider from all of the providers offering service in the area. Your energy provider supplies the electricity that’s delivered to your home. Many providers serve the Cleburne area, including TXU Energy, 4Change Energy, and Direct Energy.
Though you can choose your energy provider, your utility company is predetermined based on where you live. Oncor Electric Delivery is the utility company for Cleburne residents. Oncor delivers the electricity that your provider supplies. They also maintain the electricity infrastructure and respond to any down power lines or outages. If your power goes out, contact Oncor – not your energy provider.
Types of electricity plans in Cleburne
When you sign up for your electricity plan in Cleburne, you may find several plan types available to choose from. Here are some of the most common types:
- Fixed-rate plan: A fixed-rate plan has a rate that’s locked for the duration of your contract. Contracts usually range from 12 to 36 months, and your rate will not fluctuate during that time. During some times of the year, this means you’ll be protected from large price hikes. But during other times, you’ll miss out on significant savings.
- Variable-rate plan: Unlike a fixed-rate plan, a variable-rate plan means the rate you pay for electricity can change month to month. Variable-rate plans also do not lock you into a contract. With this type of plan, you can expect your rate to increase during certain times of the year, but at other times when demand is low, the rate you pay for energy will be lower.
- No-deposit plan: Many electricity providers require an upfront deposit unless you meet certain credit score requirements. But some companies offer no-deposit plans, where you won’t pay a deposit based on your credit. A prepaid energy plan is a common no-deposit plan where you pay for your electricity at the beginning of the month.
