McAllen residents are passionate about their city, and we are just as passionate about providing affordable, dependable and straightforward McAllen electricity plans to help keep the community cool in the summer and well lit every evening.
As far as citywide pastimes go, bird watching is a bit more popular in McAllen than researching McAllen electricity providers — which is why we've put together a guide to help you better understand the different kinds of plans offered by electricity companies in McAllen.
Your Electricity Plan Options
In Texas, all electricity plans fall into one of three categories, which are defined by the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT). The three basic types of McAllen electricity plans include:
Fixed rate electricity plans typically have a minimum service term of three months and a kilowatt-hour (kWh) rate that remains the same for the length of the term. Common term lengths are 6, 12 and 24 months. Fixed rate terms can protect you from fluctuations in energy prices and typically carry fees for canceling service before the end of the term in exchange for the provider's commitment to keep your rate the same. The only circumstance in which your price could change is to reflect actual changes in law or regulatory charges.
Indexed electricity plans can be either month-to-month or fixed-term electricity plans. They come with a rate that's determined by a predefined formula, which is disclosed to you and is based on a public index or other publicly available information. For example, when a rate indexed to the price of natural gas is going down, you'll enjoy a lower price. If it’s going up, your rate could increase as well. However, if you’re on a month-to-month indexed plan, you can switch to a fixed rate at any time.
Variable rate electricity plans have month-to-month rates that can be changed at any time by the retail electric provider based on their sole discretion and without notifying you in advance. That could mean some unwelcome surprise rate changes on your electricity bill. Learn more about unpredictable variable rate plans.
Unlike most electricity providers, when it comes to what's right for McAllen electricity, we think variable rate plans are just too unstable for many customers, and we won't offer them in McAllen — or anywhere else in Texas for that matter. We think it's important to be upfront and honest with our customers, so you never worry about getting a surprise bill due to rate hikes.
