Types of electric plans in Pasadena

There are several types of Pasadena electricity plans. A few of the most common plan types you may encounter are:

  • Fixed-rate plans: you pay a fixed rate for every kWh of power you use, meaning you pay the same price for the entirety of your electricity contract. Most contracts range from one to three years. However, if you cancel your plan before your contract ends, you may have to pay an early termination fee (ETF). The advantage of fixed-rate plans is stability and protection from spikes in the energy market.
  • Variable-rate plans: Variable-rate plans are great for those seeking flexibility and who want to avoid a long term contract. Variable rates are based on wholesale electric prices. This can lead to extreme variability in prices - and one of the main reasons WE DO NOT RECOMMEND variable rate plans.
  • No-deposit electricity plans: Every light company requires a credit check and - if your credit score is not adequate - a deposit before servicing a home or business. For those who cannot afford a deposit or have bad credit - No deposit electricity plans offer a quick, easy way to get your electricity turned on. They generally require a $25 to $75 deposit to get started and then
  • Time-of-use plans: Time-of-use (TOU) plans have a fluctuating rate that depends on the times they use electricity. These plans are great for overnight EV charging, or customers who are meticulous about moving their heavy energy usage (washing and drying clothes, running pool pumps, etc) to evenings and overnight off-peak hours (11PM-5AM). But, Time of Use plans have risk. If your usage patterns change - you could have a large bill if you use energy during the hot part of the day, between 12PM-8PM, your rate may increase if you use the majority of your energy during the day and on weekdays.
  • Renewable energy plans: Texas' leadership in renewable energy generation means that 20% + of the fuel mix in every Texas electricity plan is made up of green energy depending on the provider and plan. Some Texas electricity companies exclusively offer plans powered completely by green energy, such as Green Mountain Energy, Energy Texas, and Gexa Energy.
  • Solar Buy Back Plans: Solar buyback plans give homeowners a way to make money on the excess power being generated from their solar panels. In other words, you can be compensated with bill credits for the excess solar power generated from your solar system. A number of Texas electricity companies support these plans, including: Chariot Energy, Rhythm Energy and Energy Texas
