Paris utility companies & energy providers

Deregulated electricity markets have two major players: utility companies and energy providers. Your utility company is determined by where you live, and certain utilities serve certain parts of the state. Your utility company will deliver your electricity and maintain the energy infrastructure. Oncor Electric Delivery is the utility for Paris residents.

While you can’t choose your utility company, you can choose your energy provider. Your provider supplies the electricity your utility company delivers. Paris residents have many providers to choose from, including TXU Energy, 4Change Energy, and Direct Energy. The cheapest plans currently available are from Express Energy.

Types of electricity plans in Paris

There are several types of electricity plans to choose from in Paris, making it easy for everyone to find one that fits their needs. Here are some of the most popular types of energy plans:

  • Fixed-rate plan: When you sign up for a fixed-rate energy plan, you lock in a single rate that you pay for your entire contract. Your rate won’t fluctuate with the energy market. Your price won’t go up when demand increases, but you also won’t enjoy savings when energy rates are low. This type of plan is well-suited to those who prefer stability in their budget from one month to the next.
  • Variable-rate plan: A variable-rate plan doesn’t have a rate locked into your contract. Instead, your rate each month is based on the wholesale cost of electricity. Your rate may spike during high-demand months, but you’ll see savings in times of low demand. Unlike fixed-rate plans, variable-rate plans don’t require a long-term contract.
  • No-deposit plan: Many electricity plans require that you pay an upfront deposit based on your credit score. Luckily, some providers offer no-deposit plans. Often these plans are prepaid, meaning you pay for your electricity upfront with no deposit.
