Suppliers offer many different types of plans for residential and business consumers. At a high level, the suppliers offer two types of plans: fixed rate or variable rate.
Each plan has its pros and cons. If you live in a deregulated market, it’s up to you to research the local suppliers and plans to find the best plan for your home or business.
The simple definition of a fixed rate plan is that you are signing up for a contract with a fixed rate. That rate will remain constant for the term of the contract. Regardless of weather, natural events like hurricanes, or market volatility, your rate will not change. In most cases, fixed rate plans will have a term length of 12, 24, or 36 months.
The simple definition of a variable rate plan is that you are signing up for a contract with a variable rate. The rate will change on monthly basis based on market factors. Variable plans offer more flexibility but also present more volatility in pricing which may affect your monthly electricity bill.
It is important to weigh the pros and cons with your unique situation and select the right plan, fixed plan or variable plan, before signing a long term contract with an energy supplier.

In a deregulated energy market, residential or business consumers can switch plans at any time.
If you are locked into a longer term contract with a supplier, you can still switch to another supplier. You will just pay a switching fee. Switch fee differ by contract and supplier. Before switching, take time to read the terms of your contract and do that math to figure out if switching will offer cost savings in the long run.
