You can choose your own provider, but you cannot select your utility company. The utility company that serves you is based on where you live.

Types of electricity plans in Nacogdoches
When you sign up for your Nacogdoches energy plan, you don’t just get to choose your provider. You also get to select the type of plan you want. Common types of plans include:
- Fixed-rate plan: A fixed-rate energy plan has a locked-in rate, meaning your electricity price doesn’t fluctuate during your contract. Contracts can last 12, 24, or 36 months. Fixed-rate plans provide some stability for your budget, but you’ll pay an early termination fee if you end your contract early.
- Variable-rate plan: A variable-rate plan can change from month to month, depending on the energy market. Some months your rate will go up, and other months it will go down. You aren’t locked into a contract, meaning there are no fees if you switch providers.
- No-deposit plan: Depending on your credit history, you may have to pay a deposit when you sign up for your electricity plan. Luckily, some providers offer no-deposit plans that allow you to skip the credit check and deposit. A prepaid energy plan is a popular no-deposit plan where you pay for your electricity upfront.
