Fixed-rate plans in Edinburg

By signing up for a fixed-rate plan, your rate will stay the same throughout your contract. You do not have to worry about price hikes due to seasonal variations or other issues. However, if you cancel before the contract expires, you might be charged an early termination fee (ETF).

Variable-rate plans give you the flexibility to change as you need to without any early termination fees. However, your rate will fluctuate with the market price of energy. Which means during peak seasons, your electric bill can spike.
