Types of electricity plans in Allen
The Choose Energy Marketplace offers fixed-, variable- and prepaid energy plans. Here is how each type of plan works.
- Fixed-rate plans: These plans are popular for their predictability. With a fixed-rate plan, your provider locks in a rate for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity you use. These types of plans protect you from fluctuations in the energy market.
- Variable-rate plans: Variable-rate plans are riskier, but they are sometimes cheaper. Your monthly rate can change based on the wholesale cost of electricity. You will experience an increase in your bill if energy costs go up, but you can also get a price break when wholesale prices are low.
- Prepaid and no-deposit plans: Many energy providers require a deposit before the start of your service. You may be able to find a no-deposit plan if you are okay with prepaying every month. Prepaid electricity plans require you to maintain a balance in your account. Your provider will typically notify you when you need to add more funds.
