Why Do Harker Heights Electric Companies Run Credit Checks?
Harker Heights electric companies don’t own the power plants that generate the electricity they sell or the infrastructure that transmits it. They must buy in off of the grid before selling it to their customers. Power plants cost a lot of money to build and operate. When electricity providers sell power to consumers, they must first buy this electricity from the owners of those power plants.
Like just about any other venture that makes money selling a product, electric companies in Harker Heights buy their product and resell this product on the retail market at a small profit on each kilowatt.

When a consumer doesn’t pay their utility bill at month end, the company is not just out the electricity. They lose the money they had to spend to buy it from the producers.
That’s why it’s necessary for them to make sure the people they enroll in an electricity plan are likely pay their bills. The credit check helps lower their default rate when it comes to people paying their bills.
The credit check is known as a soft credit check and doesn’t have an impact on the applicant’s credit score. Depending on the result of the credit check, the company may require a customer to provide a deposit before they will turn on the lights. You will sometimes find No Credit Check electricity plans, however.
Do Not Ignore the EFL of the Electricity Plans
Before you pick on an energy plan, you should always review the plan’s EFL. EFL stands for Electricity Facts Label. It is a required document and every plan marketed in the Harker Heights market includes one. The EFL for each plan is updated when rates are updated.
You will find a link to the EFL for every plan listed here on Vault electricity.
Every EFL is required to contain certain key pieces of information which includes the average electricity rate for 500, 1000, and 2000 kWhs. Depending on how the plan is structured there can be a wide range between these three rates. Pay close attention that you are looking at the usage level that represents the amount of electricity you expect to use.
If the rates among the three usage levels are very different, it might be an indication that this is a plan that could be problematic, and you may want to steer clear of it.
In the EFL you will also find the cancellation fees and the contract length of the plan.
