Current energy trends in Katy

Extreme weather in Texas increases energy demand, resulting in higher electricity rates. Prices rose particularly high during the summer of 2022. Usually, electricity rates are lower during the spring and fall due to less demand. 

How weather affects Katy electricity rates

Katy tends to experience hot summers and mild winters. Energy demand typically spikes in the summer. However, in mild seasons, demand decreases.

These fluctuations in demand directly influence energy rates. That means rates will rise when energy demand increases, and vice versa. You can save money on electricity by locking in a fixed-rate plan during times of lower demand. However, keep in mind that if you switch from another fixed-rate plan before your contract ends, you may incur an early termination fee (ETF). 

Types of plans in Katy

Picking the right plan can save you money in the long run, and SaveOnEnergy is here to help make the process easy and convenient. Energy plan options include fixed-rate, variable-rate, no-deposit, and green energy plans. Our energy experts are available to answer your questions.

Fixed-rate plans in Katy

Fixed-rate plans lock in your energy rate for the length of your contract, typically one to three years. During that time, your rate does not fluctuate based on the market. However, you may have to pay an (ETF) if you end your contract early. If you’re interested in a plan with simple contract terms and pricing, a fixed-rate plan may be right for you. 

Variable-rate plans in Katy

A variable-rate plan offers a monthly rate subject to the market’s rise and fall. Your rates will increase or decrease depending on what’s happening in the market. The benefit is that you aren’t stuck in a contract and can switch providers anytime. A variable-rate plan may work for you if you want a shorter contract and want to take advantage of market lows.

If you have a lower credit score, electric providers may require you to pay a deposit before you begin service. However, some providers offer no-deposit plans that allow you to skip this requirement. The most common of these are prepaid energy plans, which allow you to pay for energy in advance. Payless Power offers no-deposit plans in Katy.
