Types of electricity plans in DeSoto
There are different types of DeSoto electric plans, which you can review here:
- Fixed-rate plan: Fixed-rate plans allow you to lock in your rate before you sign the contract. But while your energy rates won’t change, taxes and government fees might change slightly each month. Contracts with these plans are also more fixed and tend to run on average from 12 to 36 months.
- Variable-rate plan: With these types of plans, your rates could change monthly based on wholesale energy rates. People often find these plans attractive because they offer you the chance to save on months when energy rates are lower, but this could lead to higher rates during times of increased demand. Variable-rate plans do not lock you into a contract, so consumers can switch to another plan at any time.
- Prepaid and no-deposit plan: No-deposit plans help you avoid fees before your contract begins. Many times, they don’t require credit checks, which can be a perk. Prepaid plans also have you pay into an account. The balance of that account draws down as you pay your electricity bills, and then you get an alert when the account is running low.
