Learn more about HINO Electric supply plans
Similar to other Texas electric companies, HINO Electric offers a variety of residential supply plans. Contracts can vary in length from 3 months to 27 months depending on location. Many supply plans from HINO Electric, including the People Come On and Love Around Texas plans, have a fixed rate. With fixed-rate plans, customers' rate per kWh stays the same during the entire contract. Fixed-rate supply plans protect consumers from price increases in the market. For consumers who are interested in commercial supply plans, HINO Electric offers custom quotes and supply plans since each business has different needs.
Explore pay as you go plans
HINO Electric offers pay as you go supply plans for consumers who may want to avoid signing a contract. The pay as you go plans are prepaid electricity plans. Consumers pay in advance for the electricity they will need during the month. These plans do not require a credit check or an initial deposit. Customers will get an alert via text or email when their account balance needs more money added. Money can be added to the account online or at a payment center.
HINO Electric gives back through scholarships
The HINO Electric RGV Scholarship Fund is a nonprofit organization to raise money for students from the Rio Grande Valley to put toward higher education. HinoPalooza is the main fundraising event for the organization. The event includes a barbecue cook-off, live music and a team roping contest. Another fundraising event is the Rio Grande Live Stock Show. Items are auctioned off to businesses and individuals can purchase students' projects, and the money goes toward the charity.
How to switch providers
If you're looking to change your energy services to HINO Electric, the company's site states that there is no fee associated with switching. However, other Texas electric companies may charge a cancellation or early termination fee. If you're looking to switch providers, check your current terms and conditions for current fees. Keep in mind that your utility company will continue to provide your electricity during the switch.
Consumers are encouraged to compare supply rates
There are so many choices when it comes to Texas electric companies. Consumers in Texas have the power to choose, and the only way to find the best electricity plan for you is to compare companies. Determine the rate you are currently paying for electricity so you can compare it to new rates from other electric providers.
