Types of Energy Plans in Carbon

There are basically three types of Electricity Plans available for residential customers. Houston electricity companies offer a wide range of options and terms. For the most part they are in three categories: fixed-rate and variable rate and pre-paid.

Fixed-Rate Electricity Plans in Houston

Fixed-rate plans will have a set price for the term of the contract. Regardless of weather, natural events, or market volatility, your rate will not change. Fixed-rate plans have a term length of 6, 12, 24, or 36 months. We recommend fixed-rate plans for most customers.

Variable-Rate Electricity Plans Houston

Variable-rate plan rates may change on a monthly basis based on market factors. Variable-rate plans offer more flexibility but present more volatility in pricing. Price changes may impact your monthly electricity bill in the form of price hikes. In most cases, we do not recommend variable-rate plans.

Pre-Paid Electricity Plans in Houston

When you sign up for pre-paid electricity, no social security number and no credit check are required.

Signing up takes a few minutes and requires a small upfront payment to establish your account balance. Prepaid providers will text you to add more money as you balance changes. Or you can use your prepaid provider's app to monitor your usage and manage your budget online.

Renewable and Green Energy Options in Carbon

Over 30% of the energy produced in Texas is from renewable energy resources such as solar, and wind. In fact, Texas produces more green energy than any other state. And is one of the reasons that Texas has some of the lowest electricity rates in the US.

Every Texas energy provider has about 20% green energy in their mix of energy sources. You can see this in the Fuel Mix section of any Texas Electricity Plan EFL (Electricity Facts Label).

Most Texas electricity companies have a 100% green / renewable energy plan, where 100% of the energy you buy supports renewable energy generators. Some Carbon electricity companies are exclusively green, where every plan is 100% green and prices and rates support 100% green energy and renewable generation.

The 3 types of renewable energy plans to select from:

Green energy term plans:
These are similar to traditional 3 to 12 month term plans with 100% green energy.
EV Charging Plans:
Plans targeted at EV owners that are "Time of Use" where you pay low rates at night (between 11PM and 5AM) and a higher rate during the day.
Solar Buy Back Plans:
Plans that allow homeowners who own their solar panels to sell excess power back to their provider or offset their electricity bill with excess power generated by their solar panels and may earn bill credits of up to .25 cents per kWh exported back to the grid.
