Frequently Asked Questions
What are the most popular Express plans?
Express has a variety of different energy plans to choose from, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Fixed-rate plans with low prices and favorable terms are available, as well as variable-rate options for individuals searching for flexibility in their electricity costs. People who want to help the environment can also select from green energy alternatives!
Their most popular energy plan would be their “Quick 12” plan. This plan is a year-long, fixed-rate plan that has a very low cancellation fee and no base charge!
Express also offers another plan called the “Express 12” plan, which is similar to the Quick 12 plan, however, there is a flat rate charge rather than the no base charge that the Quick 12 has to offer.
What are Monthly and Yearly Contracts?
When switching over to a new energy plan, you will also have to decide the length of contract you want to be locked in for. The two most popular type of contract lengths are monthly and yearly contracts. With a monthly contract, you will be required to pay for your energy on a one-month contract. At this time you will be able to change, renew, or cancel your service without penalty. These contacts offer great flexibility in your service. With a yearly contract, you lock in your energy plan for a year at a time. This allows you to have reliability in your energy plan and you won’t have to worry about adjusting this plan for a full year. However, if you are needing to change or cancel your service before the contract is up, you will likely need to pay cancellation fees.
What is the difference between a variable-rate and a fixed-rate energy plan?
A variable-rate energy plan comes with rates that change frequently, while a fixed-rate energy plan offers rates that are locked in for a specific duration. Variable-rate plans are great for those who want the flexibility to change their energy rates, while fixed-rate plans offer stability and predictability.
Should I choose a Fixed-Rate or Variable-Rate plan?
This really depends on your needs as an energy consumer. Variable-rate plans are great for people who want the flexibility to change their electricity costs based on market conditions. These plans can be month-to-month or even year-to-year. Fixed-rate plans, on the other hand, offer a locked-in electricity rate for the entire length of the contract. This could be for as short as one month or up to three years. So, if you know you’ll need energy stability for an extended period, a fixed-rate plan may be the best option for you.
What is Energy Deregulation?
Energy deregulation is the process by which the government removes the regulations on the energy industry and allows private companies to compete for customers. This competition can lead to lower prices and better service for consumers. In the State of Texas, energy deregulation has already taken place and Express Energy is proud to be a part of this growing industry! Take control of your energy with your Power to Choose, and compare your options to find the best plan for your needs and budget!
How can I benefit from energy deregulation?
Energy deregulation is the process of separating the production of energy from its distribution. This process allows customers to choose their own energy provider, which gives them more control over their energy costs. Additionally, deregulation promotes competition among energy providers, which leads to lower rates for customers.
What is Green Energy?
Green energy is energy that is produced in a way that has minimal impact on the environment. This could be through the use of renewable resources like solar and wind power. Green energy is also produced through the use of more efficient technologies that use less energy overall. Express Energy offers green energy options for their customers who are interested in doing their part to help the environment!
What types of plans offer green energy options?
Many providers offer green energy options in their plans. These may include renewable sources such as solar, wind, and hydroelectric power. When comparing different plans, look for one that offers a percentage of renewable sources in its mix so you know you’re getting a certain amount of green energy. Additionally, many providers offer plans that are 100% green energy, providing you with clean, renewable energy for your home or business.
Are there any benefits of short term contracts?
Yes, short term energy contracts allow energy customers to take advantage of market conditions in the energy sector and switch energy plans more quickly if energy prices go up or down. Energy customers should compare energy providers and energy plans to find the best energy plan for their specific needs.
