However, your local utility company will still deliver your electricity. You can’t choose your own utility company — it’s based on where you live. AEP Texas Central is the utility company that delivers electricity and manages power lines in Victoria, TX. Outages or problems with the power lines should be reported to AEP Texas Central.
Types of electricity plans in Victoria
When you sign up for your energy plan in Victoria, you don’t just get to choose your provider. You also get to choose from the following types of energy plans:
- Fixed-rate plan: A fixed-rate energy plan has a rate that’s locked into your contract for 12, 24, or 36 months. During that time, your rate won’t fluctuate with the market. You aren’t vulnerable to price hikes when demand is high, but you also won’t see savings when demand is low.
- Variable-rate plan: A variable-rate plan doesn’t have a contract, which means you don’t lock in a rate. Instead, your rate can fluctuate monthly with the energy market. Some months it will fluctuate in your favor, but other months you’ll pay more.
- No-deposit plan: Depending on your credit history, you may have to pay a deposit for your electricity plan. Some companies offer no-deposit energy plans, which allow you to skip the deposit and credit check. A prepaid energy plan is a popular type of no-deposit plan.
