Why Do Carrollton Electric Companies Run Credit Checks?
Producing electricity requires a lot of capital and investment in infrastructure. Carrollton electric companies don’t own the power plants or infrastructure. When electricity providers sell electricity to consumers, they must first purchase this electricity wholesale from the owners of those capital assets.
Just like most other companies that makes money selling a product, electric companies in Texas buy their product and resell this product on the retail market with a small add-on for profit.
When a consumer doesn’t pay their electric bill, the company is not just out the electricity. They lose the money they had to spend to buy it.
That’s why they are so concerned about making sure the people they enroll in an electricity plan pay their bills. The credit check helps keep their default rates down when it comes to people paying their bills.
The credit check is referred to as a soft credit check and doesn’t affect your credit score. Depending on the result of the credit check, the company may ask a new customer to provide a deposit before they will turn on service.

Also, the cheapest electricity provider for your situation may be different than the cheapest electricity provider for someone else’s situation. Companies design plans to target different market segments. While a provider may have the best rate for people that use around 500 kilowatt hours of electricity, their pricing structure may make them relatively more expensive for someone who uses 1000 kWh of electricity monthly.
In addition to that, they may have great rates in Carrollton but be more expensive in other parts of Texas.

If your business uses more than 400,000 kWh per year, you will want to put it up for bidding, where the best electricity providers in Texas do a reverse auction to win the right to supply your business with electricity.
If your Carrollton business uses less than 400,000 kWh per year, you can go with the broker rates that are published everyday by the best electricity providers. VaultElectricity.com receives those rates each day, so we know which electric providers have the cheapest electricity rates.
It’s important to note that the broker rates are cheaper than the rates you will receive if you call the electricity providers directly.
