Current energy trends in Belton
As summer temperatures begin to increase across Texas, electricity rates have also gone up. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) predicts that there will be record energy demand this summer. As of June 8, 2022, Texas electric rates have continued to increase.
How weather affects Belton electricity rates
The summer temperatures in Belton are often in the 90s, and during the winter, it’s not unusual to see temperatures in the 30s and 40s. Because of these extreme temperatures, electricity demand tends to rise in the summer and winter, and with this comes an increase in the rates as well. One way you can potentially save on your electricity bill is by locking in a fixed-rate plan during the spring and fall when demand and rates tend to be lower.

Fixed-rate plans in Belton
A fixed-rate energy plan enters you into a contract for a period of 12 or more months. With this contract, your energy rate is fixed and won’t fluctuate despite any changes in the energy market. This type of plan is perfect for someone who seeks stability in their budget. However, because you will be locked into a contract, you’ll be charged an early termination penalty if you end your plan early.
Variable-rate plans in Belton
A variable-rate plan is one with a rate that can fluctuate from one month to the next. Instead of locking in a rate with a contract, your rate changes each month based on the current wholesale price of electricity. During some months with high demand, your electricity rate could spike. But you could experience a lower rate during months when demand is low. You also won’t be locked into a contract with a variable-rate plan.
No-deposit plans in Belton
Before starting your service, some providers require a credit check and deposit depending on your credit score. If you would like to avoid a credit check or bypass paying the initial deposit, consider a no-deposit plan. Prepaid plans are the most common type of no-deposit plan. Similar to prepaid cellular service, you can pay upfront for the energy you anticipate using, and reload your account as needed. This is a good option for those who have a strict budget.
