Types Of Energy Plans

There are various types of energy plans that use different types of pricing models. Without going into too much detail, we will focus on the two most common types of energy plans. Fixed rate and variable rate.

Fixed Rate

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 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.

Variable Rate

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. Leaving you vulnerable to factors that may affect your monthly electricity bill.

Contract Lengths

By signing up for a longer contract with an energy providers (2 -3 years), you can usually get a lower rate. With longer terms, suppliers are able to forecast usage better. This allows them to buy energy futures to balance supply and demand. Providers will often pass those savings on to you.

How to Choose The Best Energy Provider

Electricity is a commodity. When you choose a an energy provider there is no real difference in the electricity you receive. Electricity from provider A is the same as from provider B.

There are some things you should keep in mind when comparing providers.

Energy supplier do differ on customer service, billing tools, and usage monitoring. If you don't care about online tools you might be able to get a lower rate from smaller supplier.

Most suppliers offer online billing, but larger suppliers have more tools and support. The local utility handles the delivery of your power. For example, in Houston the utility is Centerpoint. They handle outages, maintain the grid etc.
