Because Texas has a deregulated energy market, residents can choose their own electricity provider. The provider you choose will supply the electricity that’s delivered to your home. There are many different providers available in Copperas Cove, including TXU Energy, 4Change Energy, and Direct Energy.
While you can choose your own electricity provider, you can’t choose your utility company, which is determined based on where you live. The utility company delivers electricity to your home and maintains the electricity infrastructure. Your utility company is also responsible for restoring power when there is an electrical outage. The utility for Copperas Cove is Oncor Electric Delivery.
Types of electricity plans in Copperas Cove
When you sign up for an electricity plan in Copperas Cove, there are several types of plans that may be available. Here are a few of the most common energy plan types:
- Fixed-rate plan: When you sign up for a fixed-rate electricity plan, you lock in a single rate in cents per kWh for the entirety of your contract, usually ranging from 12 to 36 months. You aren’t vulnerable to price hikes when demand is high, but you also don’t enjoy price dips when demand is low. This type of plan is best for people who want stability in their energy costs.
- Variable-rate plan: Unlike a fixed-rate plan, a variable-rate plan doesn’t have the same rate each month. Instead, your electricity rate fluctuates with the energy market. Some months your rate will spike, but other months it could drop significantly. You aren’t locked into a contract, meaning you can cancel or switch to another plan at any time.
- No-deposit plan: Many electricity providers require that you pay an upfront deposit to secure your contract. But some companies offer no-deposit plans for customers who want to avoid a deposit or a credit check. A prepaid energy plan is a type of no-deposit plan that allows you to pay ahead of time for the amount of electricity you expect to use.
