If You Don’t Compare Electricity Rates, You Are Overpaying
If you haven’t looked at what rates are being offered by other electricity providers recently, you are almost certainly overpaying. With well over a dozen reputable electricity providers offering service in Uvalde TX, the chances that your current provider is offering you the lowest rate available are low.
Competition helps keep prices low for any market. The Texas electricity market is no different. Electricity rates in Texas change constantly. Providers are constantly attempting to undercut each other for position at the top of our list of the cheapest rates. 12 months is the most common plan length. But plans are available for contract lengths between 3 months and 36 months.
Once the term of your plan ends, you can expect your provider to offer you another 12 month plan. The rate on this 12 month plan may be the lowest rate available by any provider. But it’s not likely to be. That’s why you should compare this offer to other offers currently listed on Vault Electricity and choose the plan that works for you.
If you decided not to sign up for a new plan with your current provider, they will be happy to keep you on with month to month pricing. This is a mistake. You will almost surely be paying more than you should.
Why Do Uvalde Electric Companies Run Credit Checks?
Like most other companies that sells a product, 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 have to 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 a customer doesn’t pay their electric bill TXU has to eat the cost of the electricity they provided. Companies run credit checks in order to make a judgement as to the likelihood that people 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 lose.

Can I Just Skip Reading the Electricity Plan EFLs?
The language used to market electricity plans in Texas can be unclear. But the EFL (Electricity Facts Label) is supposed to spell out in detail exactly what the rates and fees attached to an electricity plan are.
Generally, electricity providers in Texas are allowed to innovate by dreaming up electricity plans with many different pricing structures. The EFL is a standardized document that gives consumers a tool to compare electricity plans in a like format.
Items that can be found in EFLs include:
- Per kWh costs
- Cancelation Fees
- Average electricity rates for 500, 1000, and 2000 kWhs
- TDU passthrough fees
- Flat fees
- Length of Contract
- Percentage of renewable energy included with the plan
- Descriptive language to clarify how electricity rates for the plan are calculated.
For every plan listed on Vault Electricity, you will find a link to that plan’s EFL. Often the rates that are marketed don’t tell the whole story of what your actual costs may be. It is always a good idea to review the EFL before you decide to choose a plan.
