What to Do If Your Electricity Plan is Expiring
Sometime as the end of your current plan approaches, your electricity provider will probably contact you with an offer for a new plan once your current plan expires. This new plan may have a better or worse electricity rate depending on what is going on in the market and how aggressive the provider is currently being with their own pricing.
Either way, you should compare this offer with other plans being offered by other electricity providers. There is a good chance you will find a better rate with another provider. If you do find a better rate with another company, you can usually enroll in a new plan with a start date as much 2 months out. When the switch date arrives, your new provider will handle the switch. There is no need to contact your current provider.

Which Electric Company Distributes the Electricity in Plano?
You may be surprised to know that the retail electric company you select is not the company that is responsible for actually delivering the power to your home. Deregulation created separate roles for different types of companies within the Texas electricity market.
The heavy lifting of delivering power to your home is actually done by companies known as transmission and distribution utilities. These utilities have defined regions where they are responsible for maintaining the power lines and actually getting power into your home. If there is a power outage or a downed line, it is their crews that respond.
In the Plano area, the TDU is ONCOR. They deliver electricity to every home and business in their region regardless of who the retail electricity provider is that sells the electricity to that address.
This makes it so much easier to pick an electricity provider because it take reliability of service out of the equation and allows consumers to focus purely on price.

Plano No Deposit Electricity Plan Options
Electricity providers run credit checks on people who sign-up for electricity. As long as the credit check meets their requirements, no deposit is required.
Quite often, however, they will ask for a sizable deposit. When this happens, you have a couple of options.
You can try enrolling with a different provider. The credit requirements of each provider can be different. If one provider asks for a deposit, another provider may offer you a no deposit electricity plan. At a minimum, you may find that another provider asks for a smaller deposit.
If you have no luck with these options, you can enroll in a prepaid electricity plan. Prepaid electricity plans are very popular in Texas. You can usually get power turned on for under $50. This money is not a deposit. You are paying for the electricity you use in advance.
