Since Texas deregulated its electricity market, Belton residents have had the freedom to choose their own electricity providers. Some of the most popular providers available to Belton residents include TXU Energy, 4Change Energy, and Direct Energy. Currently on the Choose Energy marketplace, there are electricity rates as low as 6.7 cents per kWh.
While you can choose your own electricity provider, you can’t choose your utility company. Your utility company maintains the electricity infrastructure and delivers the electricity that powers your home. Oncor Electric Delivery is the utility company for Belton residents. If you experience a power outage or spot a downed power line, contact Oncor.
Types of electricity plans in Belton
Belton residents have plenty of options for electricity plans. Not only can you choose your provider, but you can also choose from different types of electricity plans. Popular types of plans include:
- Fixed-rate plan: A fixed-rate electricity plan has a rate locked into the contract. Contacts often range from one year to 36 months, and during that time, the rate you pay for electricity won’t change. This type of plan is well-suited to people who like consistency in their budgets since you don’t have to worry about price hikes or drops.
- Variable-rate plan: A variable-rate plan is one where the rate can change from one month to the next, and your rate each month is based on the wholesale electricity rate. The benefit of this plan is that you could experience a lower rate during times of low energy demand. But beware that you may have your rate spike during other times of the year.
- No-deposit plan: Depending on your credit score, you might be required to pay a deposit when you sign up for your electricity plan. Luckily, some providers offer no-deposit plans. A popular type of no-deposit plan is a prepaid energy plan. You pay for your electricity upfront based on how much you expect to use.
