Fixed-rate plans in McKinney

With a fixed-rate energy plan, your rate won’t fluctuate with the market throughout the contract. Most contract terms are 12, 24, or 36 months. You can cancel before the contract expires, but you might incur an early termination fee (ETF). 

Variable-rate plans in Mckinney

There is no contract for a variable-rate plan, which means you have the freedom to switch providers when you want. However, because there is no contract, your rate will fluctuate with the market. During months when energy demand is high, your rate can spike. When demand is low, you could see your rate also drop.
