Types of electricity plans in Pflugerville
Pflugerville residents have several types of electricity plans to choose from when they shop with the Choose Energy marketplace:
- Fixed-rate electricity plans normally involve signing a contract, which often range from 12 to 36 months. Your electricity rate is locked into your contract, meaning it won’t fluctuate. You don’t have to worry about spice hikes when electricity demand is high, but you also don’t enjoy savings when demand is low. Fixed-rate plans are ideal for consumers who want stability and security in their energy plan.
- Variable-rate energy plans don’t have a contract or a locked-in rate. You’re on a month-to-month plan, meaning you can cancel any time. The rate you pay each month fluctuates with the wholesale energy market, meaning your rate can change from one month to the next.
- No-deposit electricity plans don’t have the upfront deposit required by many electricity plans. Some no-deposit plans are designed for those with good credit, while others skip the credit check altogether. A prepaid plan is a type of no-deposit plan where you pay for your electricity upfront and add more funds to your account when it starts to run low.
