Fixed-rate plans in Tyler 

A fixed-rate plan provides predictability in the price you pay for energy. With a fixed-rate plan, you sign a contract to lock in your rate for a set amount of time, meaning your rate won’t spike due to high temperatures or spikes in demand. That said, if you need to cancel before your contract ends, your provider may charge an early termination fee. 

Variable-rate plans in Tyler

Variable-rate plans do not require you to sign a contract, but you also will not lock in your energy rate. Instead, your electricity rate will fluctuate from month to month depending on the wholesale cost of energy. This means the rate you pay when demand increases could be much higher than what you pay during times of low demand.
