How weather affects Cypress electricity rates
Like the rest of Texas, temperatures typically peak in Cypress during the summer, when they can hit the high 90s or even over 100. During the winter, it’s common for the temperature to drop into the 40s. Due to these significant fluctuations, energy demand is generally highest during the summer and winter.
On the other hand, temperatures are more moderate during the spring and fall, making these periods less energy-intensive. The lower energy demand during these seasons makes them ideal times to change providers, since you may secure cheaper rates. Keep in mind that if you terminate a fixed-rate contract early to switch plans, you may have to pay an early termination fee (ETF).
Types of plans in Cypress
Cypress customers can choose from a variety of types of energy plans. You can learn more about the features of different energy plans here or call the number on your screen to speak with one of our energy experts. In the meantime, here is a quick overview of each type of plan available in Cypress.
Fixed-rate plans in Cypress
With a fixed-rate plan in Cypress, you’ll be guaranteed a set price for the energy you use throughout your contract. Fixed-rate plans typically run for an agreed period of time — usually 12 to 36 months — and can’t be canceled before the contract is up unless you pay an ETF.
Variable-rate plans in Cypress
Having a variable-rate plan means that the cost of your energy usage changes according to the market price at different times of the year. You may get prices cheaper than a fixed-rate plan during periods of low energy use. However, if demand increases, you may pay more than you would with a fixed-rate plan. The advantage of these plans is that you can stop at any time without worrying about an ETF.
No-deposit plans in Cypress
When you sign up with a new energy provider, they typically run a credit check. If you don’t pass the check, you may have to pay a deposit before beginning service. No-deposit plans allow you to avoid paying this fee. With most no-deposit plans, such as the popular prepaid plan, you pay into an energy account upfront and top it up when the balance is low.
Green electricity in Cypress
Green energy plans use electricity produced with little to no carbon dioxide output. There is a portion of green energy in every Texas power plan since the Lone Star State produces a significant amount of wind power and solar energy. However, if you want to ensure that all your energy usage is offset by green energy, consider purchasing one of the green electricity plans in Cypress available on our marketplace. You can view the percentage of green energy each plan contains through its Electricity Facts Label (EFL), which is linked to the plan’s card on the marketplace.
