When Should I Renew my Burleson Electricity Plan Contract?
One mistake you should avoid is going off contract. If the contract on your current plan expires, your provider will gladly keep you on as a customer. But often you will be transitioned to a monthly plan with no contract at a much higher rate than you were paying. Don’t find yourself in a situation where you are suddenly paying more than you had been for the same electricity.
The best thing to do is to begin shopping for a new plan as early as 60 days prior to the end of your current contract. Most providers will allow you to enroll in a new plan with a start date as much as 60 days in the future.
If you find a rate that is better than what you are already paying you should consider enrolling in that plan. That allows you to lock in that great price; even if the start date is a couple of months in the future.

Electric Rates Have Moved Higher – What Should I do?
Sometimes you may find that the whole market has moved higher and all of the rates being offered in the market are higher than your current contract. If this happens you can be patient and wait until your current plan expiration date is a little closer to see if rates improve.
Keep in mind, though, that if electricity rates for the whole market have moved higher, your rate too will increase once your current plan expires. In this case you are still better off choosing from the cheapest plan currently available. Otherwise, you could be paying even more once your current plan ends.

Why Do Burleson Electric Companies Run Credit Checks?
Much like other companies that sell a product, Burleson electric companies must pay for the electricity they resell to consumers. Even if someone fails to pay their bill to the electric provider, they still must pay the producers of the electricity.
Power plants and other producers of electricity such wind turbine operators sell the power they produce into the grid. Retail electricity providers such as TXU buy this power and resell it to their customers. Their profit margins can be slim.
If someone doesn’t pay their electric bill TXU has to absorb the cost of the electricity they provided. Companies run credit checks in order to make a determination about how likely it is that someone will pay their bills. If they determine someone to be a greater risk of default, they will as for a deposit to protect themselves from losing money.
