Types of electricity plans in Del Rio
There are several types of energy plans available to Del Rio residents. You can shop the different plans and choose one that best fits your budget and preference.
- Fixed-rate plan: A fixed-rate energy plan has a contract where you lock in your monthly electricity rate for 12—36 months. Your rate is based on the current market rate when you sign your contract. It doesn’t fluctuate with the market, and you aren’t vulnerable to price hikes. On the other hand, you don’t save money during times when rates are low.
- Variable-rate plan: With a variable-rate energy plan, your rate could change every month. It’s based on the wholesale cost of electricity, meaning it rises and falls with the market. In some parts of the year, you’ll see your rate spike. But during other months, you’ll have savings due to low demand. With this type of plan, you aren’t locked into a contract.
- No-deposit plan: Many electricity plans require an upfront deposit, especially if you don’t have a good credit score. Luckily, some no-deposit plans allow you to skip the credit check and the deposit. With a prepaid energy plan, you pay for your electricity upfront. You can pay for only what you think you’ll use, and if you need more, you can simply add money to your account.
