Shopping for No Deposit Electricity In Katy
It’s not easy to get a no deposit electricity plan if your credit isn’t perfect or if you are just starting out and haven’t built any credit yet.
Most companies check your credit when you try to get your lights turned on. If your credit score isn’t what they want it to be, they will ask you for a deposit. There are certain situations under which you could be exempt from having to pay a deposit, but few people qualify for these exemptions.
Electric companies set their own credit standards based on their own in house criteria. If you can’t afford the deposit they demand, you could sign-up for another electric company. If the other company has different credit standards, they may offer you an electricity plan with no upfront deposit or, at least, a smaller deposit.
Prepaid electricity plans are another popular option for no deposit electricity. A prepaid electricity plan is exactly what it sounds like. You put a small amount of money into your account up front (usually you can start with less than $50) and that money pays for your electricity for the first few days or however long the money lasts. When your account balance begins to run low, you just add more money to your account. For a lot of people, this is a much better option that having hundreds of dollars tied up in a deposit.
