Before you start exploring your energy options, it’s important to understand the difference between plan types. Below, we’ve summarized three popular plan types you may encounter in our marketplace.
When you purchase a fixed-rate plan, you’ll enter into a contract with your provider (generally for 12, 24, or 36 months). You’ll pay a predetermined price for electricity, which won’t change for the duration of your plan, which allows you to better predict your monthly energy expenses. However, if you end your plan early, you’ll usually pay a penalty fee.
Variable-rate plans are more flexible than fixed-rate plans because they don’t come with a contract or a stable electricity rate. If you opt for one of these plans, your energy rate may change each month, depending on the wholesale price of electricity. As a result, it can be more difficult to anticipate your energy costs.
Prepaid and no-deposit plans
If you don’t have good credit, your provider may ask you to pay a deposit on your electricity service. However, some companies offer no-deposit plans, which don’t include a deposit requirement. For example, prepaid plans let you load money onto your electricity account in advance and top up when necessary.
