Texas deregulated its energy market in 2002. Since then, residents of Coppell and most of the state have had the ability to choose their energy providers. Your energy provider is the company that supplies the energy that powers your home. You can use the Choose Energy marketplace to shop some of the top providers in Coppell, including 4Change Energy, Gexa Energy, and TXU Energy. With electricity rates in Coppell currently available for as low as 7.4 cents per kWh from Frontier Utilities, you have options.
While your energy provider will supply and monitor your electricity, your local utility company will deliver your electricity and maintain the local electric infrastructure. Oncor Electric Delivery is the utility company for Coppell residents. You can report outages, downed power lines, and other infrastructure problems directly to your utility company Oncor Electric.
Types of electricity plans in Coppell
After you select your energy provider, you need to pick an electricity plan. Below is a list of the popular types to help you choose the right plan:
- Fixed-rate plan: A fixed-rate electricity plan allows you to lock in your rate for a contract of 12, 24, or 36 months. During your contract, your rate won’t fluctuate with the energy market. You will have a consistent rate for the duration of your contract, even if there are changes in the market. However, you also won’t see savings when energy rates are lower, and you’ll pay an early termination fee if you need to end your contract.
- Variable-rate plan: A variable-rate energy plan doesn’t lock you into a contract. You can switch providers or to a different plan at any time. However, your electricity rate each month is based on the current energy market and can fluctuate often. Some months you may experience a lower electricity bill when rates are low, but during other months, your bill may be higher due to higher market rates.
- No-deposit plan: Depending on your credit score, you may be required to pay a deposit for your electricity plan. Luckily, some providers now offer no-deposit energy plans that allow you to skip the deposit and the credit check. A prepaid energy plan is a popular type of no-deposit plan that allows you to pay upfront for the amount of electricity you expect to use.
