Energy suppliers offer two different types of plans for residential and business customers: a fixed-rate plans or a variable-rate plan.
Each type of plan has its respective pros and cons. As a Texas customer, it’s important to understand the two types of plans before signing up for an electricity plan for your home and/or business.
Fixed-rate plans will have a set price 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 have a term length of 6, 12, 24, or 36 months. We recommend fixed-rate plans for most customers.
Variable-rate plan rates may change on a monthly basis based on market factors. Variable-rate plans offer more flexibility but also present more volatility in pricing which may impact your monthly electricity bill. In most cases, we do not recommend variable-rate plans.
