Types of electricity plans in Laredo
Different energy plans work best for different households because every household and their needs are unique.
There are a few different types of energy plans for Laredo residents to choose from. While searching the Choose Energy Marketplace, you may find:
- Fixed-rate plans. These plans allow consumers to lock in their rate for the length of their contract. This is great for those who prefer predictable energy bills because the rate you pay for electricity is the same every month. The downside is during off seasons when energy demand is lower, you will not be able to take advantage of decreasing rates.
- Variable-rate plans. These plans charge rates based on the energy market, which can vary from month to month. Consumers may experience low rates during times of decreased energy demand, then a substantial increase when the energy market’s demand goes up. However, variable-rate plans do not lock customers into a contract, so you can shop and switch plans at any point.
- Prepaid and no-deposit plans. No-deposit plans are a good option for consumers who have a lower credit score or only want to pay for exactly how much energy they use. Unlike the other plans, prepaid plans require no deposit, and consumers pay for their energy usage upfront. When your account begins to run low, you will need to add more funds to cover any additional energy usage.
