Types of Energy Plans in Hillsboro

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.
