Types of electricity plans in Rosenberg
When you sign up for your next electricity plan, you’ll get to choose between several different types of plans to find the one that best fits your needs. Some of the most common types of plans include:
- Fixed-rate plan: When you sign up for a fixed-rate energy plan, you lock in a monthly rate in cents per kWh for a contract length of between 12 and 36 months. No matter what happens with the electricity market, your rate won’t change. You aren’t vulnerable to price hikes during high-demand times. This type of plan is ideal for people who like stability in their budgets.
- Variable-rate plan: Unlike a fixed-rate plan, a variable-rate plan doesn’t have a contract, and you can’t lock in a rate. Instead, your rate fluctuates each month based on the current wholesale electricity rate. Some months you might see your price spike, but during low-demand months, you’re likely to see your price drop.
- No-deposit plan: Depending on your credit score, you may be required to pay an upfront deposit when you sign up for an electricity plan. But some companies offer no-deposit plans, which don’t require a deposit. A prepaid energy plan is a popular type of plan that doesn’t require a credit check and where you pay for your electricity upfront.
