Plan Options Explanation
Fixed Rate Plans
A fixed rate does not change over the whole period of the contract, meaning that for the length of the contract (12, or 24 months) the price you pay for electricity in ¢/kWh does not change. In general we recommend choosing fixed rate contracts of at least 12 months or more. As electricity prices per kilowatt-hour fluctuate throughout the year, and you may actually lose money by not being able to take advantage of prices when they are low. However, because electricity prices tend to increase over time, locking in fixed rates for longer periods may prove advantageous and deliver savings. You can find more information about fixed rates in our guide.
Some customers have reported savings on fixed rate electricity plans from Everything Energy. Fixed rate plans can often be a good deal if you are able to lock in a good rate at the right time of year.
Variable Rate Plans
A variable rate is a rate whose price (in ¢/kWh) varies each month. The variable rate may change at the discretion of the supplier, or as a function of price changes on an energy index. If you're interested in a variable rate, we recommend that you check out our overviews on variable and indexed rates in Texas.
Base Charges/Minimum Usage Fees
Base charges are flat charges that are charged every month regardless of the amount of power consumed. Minimum usage fees kick in when customer consumption is below a certain minimum monthly threshold. Everything Energy charges a $9.95 minimum usage fees for consumption under 1,000 kWh a month.
Green Energy Plans
Everything Energy does not offer 100% green energy plans. Everything Energy's standard plans include 6% renewable content, which is below the state average of 10.7%.
We have rated this supplier .
Everything Energy has a D rating with the Better Business Bureau, based on the small number of complaints that have been made against it relative to its size. Some customers appreciate savings on fixed rate plans, but several customers complained about problems with billing (additional charges to their bills that they felt were unfair).
