In deregulated cities, electricity is transmitted by utility companies. Utilities are also responsible for restoring power when there’s an outage. Your utility is determined by location, so you cannot choose your utility company, unlike your electricity provider. In Denton, the utility is Oncor Electric Delivery.
On the other hand, you can choose the energy provider that best fits your needs. Providers manage your energy use and billing. The Choose Energy marketplace features rates and plans from well-known Denton electricity providers, including Constellation Energy, Pulse Power, and TXU Energy. Right now, Frontier Utilities has the cheapest Denton electricity rates on our site, starting at 7.4 cents per kilowatt-hour (¢/kWh).
Types of electricity plans in Denton
As you explore the Choose Energy marketplace, you’ll find several providers and three main types of plans. Here’s a breakdown of the different options you can choose.
- Fixed-rate plans. With a fixed-rate energy plan, you’ll pay a set price for each kWh of electricity that you use. Usually, these plans come with a 12 to 36 month contract. Fixed-rate plans offer more predictability in terms of your monthly energy costs, but they may also include a penalty if you cancel early.
- Variable-rate plans. If you’d prefer a month-to-month energy plan, then a variable-rate plan might be right for you. With a variable-rate plan, your rate could change each month, depending on the current wholesale price of electricity. As a result, your monthly energy costs can fluctuate.
- Prepaid and no-deposit plans. If you have a low credit score, it’s likely that your provider will require you to pay a deposit on your service. Fortunately, no-deposit plans allow you to bypass the deposit and credit check. For example, with a prepaid plan, you can add credit to your energy account upfront and add more as you need it, similar to a prepaid cellular plan.
