Why Do Vernon Electric Companies Run Credit Checks?

Retail electric providers have thin profit margins.  In order to sell electricity to homeowners and businesses, they must first buy this electricity from the power plants that generate the electricity.  They must pay for this power even if the homeowner doesn’t pay their own electricity bill.  If someone fails to pay their bill the electric company takes a loss.

Electric companies run soft credit checks on potential customers. These do not affect the customer’s credit score.  Based on the credit check the electric company will decide whether they want to ask for a deposit.  If they feel there is a big enough chance that someone will not pay their bill, the company will require a deposit.  This protects them from loses if the customer fails to pay their bill after receiving electricity.

Why It’s So Important To Compare Vernon Electricity Rates Often

Here in Vernon, electricity rates change constantly.  There are many reasons for rate volatility in the Texas electricity market.  Weather often plays a part in electricity rates.  This is because hot or extremally cold temperatures can place heavier demand on the grid.   This in turn can drive up the spot or day-ahead prices for electricity.

Natural gas prices and predictions of future movements in natural gas prices play a big role in how electricity is priced in Texas.  Even though wind power in Texas has grown substantially, natural gas is still the most important single source for fueling power plants in Texas.

Outages at power plants can affect how much power is available for the grid at any given time.  This can also put upward prices on electricity rates.

Generally, consumers are protected from these short term movements in electricity rates.  Assuming you have a fixed rate electricity plan, you aren’t going to see your rates jump around from day to day.  But these factors along with others affect how electricity providers price their fixed rate electricity plans.

Providers are constantly trying to win business by offering lower rates than their competition.

Did You Know – Vernon, Texas

Vernon, Texas is the county seat of Wilbarger, County. On the map it resides in Northern Texas on the Oklahoma border, next to the cities of Lockett, Thalia, Electra, and about 48 miles from Wichita Falls, Texas. The population was 10,350 when it was last checked a year ago, meaning it was the 227th largest city in the state. As sources say, the city used to be called Eagle Springs, but was changed after the Civil War when settlers cultivated the land that had originally been the land of the Tonkawa Indians. It was named after the home of George Washington (Mount Vernon). And interestingly, the Great Western Cattle Trail went through Vernon at one point. Some notable people from Vernon are Country Music legend Eck Robertson, Football players James Dixon, Lawrence Gaines, Bill Herchman, Mac Percival, among others.

The economy of Vernon is driven by Tyson Foods, Rhodia, North Texas State Hospital, Victory Field Correctional Academy, and Texas AgriLife are some of the biggest employers in the city.

How Is Vernon Electricity Created?

Wind power has been the fastest growing source of electricity in Vernon for some time.  The open plains of west Texas are geographically the perfect location for installing wind turbines.  Government subsidies where largely responsible for the boom in wind power by encouraged companies to invest in wind.  The state of Texas invested billions of dollars to expand the infrastructure to transport this electricity from west Texas to Vernon and other parts of the state that need the power.

Solar energy has contributed probably less than it should to the Texas electricity grid.  Even though the state has the largest capacity to support solar energy in the country, relatively little investment has been made in utility scale solar projects in Texas.

This will soon be changing.  The manufacturing costs of photovoltaic cells has gone down while efficiency has slowly improved.  Between 2011 and 2016 the amount of solar capacity in Texas increased by 1000%.  This growth rate may be accelerating in the near future.
