Types of electricity plans in North Richland Hills
When you’re researching electricity providers in your area, you may notice that they offer multiple plan types. Below, find an overview of the most common plan types.
- Fixed-rate plans: When you sign up for a fixed-rate plan, you’ll agree to pay a set rate for every kWh that you use. On the plus side, these types of plans offer protection from market rate fluctuations. However, you will need to sign a contract with your provider (usually 12+ months) and may need to pay a termination fee if you cancel before your contract ends.
- Variable-rate plans: With a variable-rate plan, you won’t be tied to a long-term contract. Instead, your electricity rate will vary each month, depending on the current market price of electricity. These plans could be a good option if you’re looking for a month-to-month agreement, but be aware that your energy bill could fluctuate dramatically depending on energy demand.
- Prepaid and no-deposit plans: Depending on the results of your credit check, your provider may ask for a deposit to start service. If you’d rather not pay a deposit, consider signing up for a prepaid plan, which lets you load money onto your account and pay for your energy usage in advance.
