I need to change my electricity plan. What do you look for - fixed, indexed or variable? I live in Texas and our summer electricity bills are killers. Right now I'm paying 13.5 per kilowatt hour. I was on a fixed rate plan that expired 2 years ago and I never changed. I checked Texas electric choice and there are variable plans that start at 5.6 kWh. How much do these go up in the summer? I have no idea how much the rates change in any given year. Does anyone know how I can find that info? Any advice would be appreciated.
