You can choose from a few different types of energy plans in Harlingen, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Here are the primary energy plan types in Texas’ deregulated market.
If you like reliability, a fixed-rate plan may be appealing to you. You will lock in a rate per kilowatt-hour (kWh) at the start of your contract. This rate remains fixed until your contract expires. You won’t experience rate fluctuations, so if you shop when demand is low, you can ensure stable, affordable electric bills throughout your contract. On the downside, you may have to pay an early termination fee (ETF) if you decide to end your contract early.
With this type of plan, your price per kWh will change based on the current market value of electricity. This can mean your bill may be low one month and then spike the next. On the plus side, you won’t need to sign a contract for a fixed period, giving you more flexibility and protecting you from ETFs.
Prepaid and no-deposit plans
If you have good credit, you may be able to score a no-deposit plan. This means you won’t have to pay a flat upfront cost to initiate your energy service. If you are asked to pay a deposit and don’t want to, you may be able to get around it with a prepaid electricity plan. Prepaid plans require you to pay upfront and top up your account when your funds run low.
