As you’re browsing 4Change Energy electricity rates, you may encounter two types of plans: fixed-rate and variable-rate. Here’s the difference between the two:
- Fixed-rate plans. When you sign a fixed-rate plan contract, you’ll agree to pay a certain rate for the duration of your plan term, regardless of price fluctuations in the energy market. These plans offer more predictability for your monthly energy costs.
- Variable-rate plans. These types of plans don’t come with a fixed electricity rate, so your energy costs will vary depending on market fluctuations. Variable-rate plans offer more flexibility because they do not include a contract, but they can be risky since your rates can increase when energy demand is high.

No-deposit options from 4Change Energy
Like most other providers, 4Change Energy runs a credit check when you apply for a new plan. If you have a satisfactory credit score, the company will waive the deposit. Otherwise, you’ll need to pay a deposit before beginning service. If you’d rather not pay a deposit, look for a provider that offers no-deposit plans, such as prepaid plans.
Green energy options with 4Change Energy
Texas is a leading producer of wind and solar energy, so it makes sense that 4Change Energy offers its customers the ability to go green with a renewable electricity plan. You can upgrade your current 4Change Energy plan to a green plan for $6.95 per month.
Moving or transferring service with 4Change Energy
If you’re moving and want to keep your 4Change Energy plan, call the company and provide them with your new home address. On the other hand, if you’re moving and want to switch providers, you can use the Choose Energy marketplace to find a new plan. You won’t have to pay an early termination fee (ETF) as long as you can provide your new address.
Renting with 4Change energy
4Change Energy specializes in affordable energy plans for Texans, offering both fixed and variable-rate plans for renters. You can choose from several term lengths, including month-to-month, six-month, and multi-year plans. As a result, you can choose a plan that suits your rental agreement.
If you’re on a fixed-rate plan, 4Change Energy will charge you a cancellation fee if you want to terminate the plan early. One exception to this is if you move out of their service area. Variable-rate plans are month-to-month and have no cancellation fee.
4Change Energy’s residential energy plans have a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. This guarantee allows you to terminate the plan within the first 30 days if you’re dissatisfied with it.
4Change Energy business electricity
4Change Energy doesn’t offer business electricity plans. If you’re a business owner in a deregulated area, Choose Energy can match you with the right commercial energy plan for your needs. Learn more about commercial energy plans and request a customized quote for your business.
