Types of electricity plans in Humble
When you sign up for your electricity plan in Humble, you’ll have several different types of plans to choose from. Here are the most common:
- Fixed-rate plan: With a fixed-rate plan, you lock in a single rate in cents per kWh for your entire contract, often ranging from 12 to 36 months. Your rate doesn’t fluctuate with the market, meaning you don’t have to worry about price hikes when demand is high. On the other hand, you don’t enjoy savings when prices are low.
- Variable-rate plan: A variable-rate plan doesn’t have a locked-in rate. Instead, your rate can change each month with the wholesale electricity market. When demand is high, your price will spike. But it will also drop when demand is low. You also aren’t locked into a contract, meaning you can switch providers at any time.
- No-deposit plan: Depending on your credit score, you might have to pay a deposit when you sign up for your electricity plan. But some companies offer no-deposit energy plans, where you can skip the deposit. A prepaid energy plan allows you to pay for your electricity upfront, with no deposit required.
Humble green energy
Did you know that the Lone Star State is a leader in renewable energy — specifically in wind power generation? Texas produces nearly 30 percent of the country’s entire supply. It also ranks highly in solar power generation, making Texas a true U.S. leader in green energy.
Providers include a percentage of renewable energy in every plan, and Choose Energy also works with energy suppliers for Humble that only sell green energy: Chariot Energy, Green Mountain Energy, and Gexa Energy fall into that category.
