Types of electricity plans in Lancaster
Lancaster has different types of energy plans available on the Choose Energy marketplace. Depending on your household needs, the following types of energy plans are available:
- Fixed-rate plans: A fixed- rate plan is when your provider charges one rate for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity used each month. Knowing how much you’ll be charged every month provides stability and protects you from fluctuating prices. However, if the market price falls, the disadvantage is that you will have to continue paying the fixed price.
- Variable-rate plans: These types of plans will vary depending on the wholesale cost of electricity. The pros include the ability to switch providers at any time and being able to take advantage of the low points in the market. However, your rates can also increase during high-demand.
- Prepaid & no-deposit plans: Many providers require you to pay a deposit before beginning service, especially if your credit score is on the lower end. If you don’t want to pay the deposit, some providers will also allow you to pay for your electricity upfront with a prepaid energy plan. On a prepaid plan, you’ll only be paying for the exact amount of electricity you use. However, if you run low on power, you’ll need to add more funds to your account.
