Houston electricity rate plans offer flexibility to the energy consumer

In Houston Texas electricity service customers are beginning to see that choosing a variable electric rate plan and waiting for it to eventually go up is not the best choice.

The wait and see game works for awhile but eventually you can get stung as did Steve Smith who remodeled my house not but a few months ago.

We needed some drywall hung in the living room and some electrical rewiring done and me and Steve started talking. He mentioned that he used to get on a the cheapest variable electricity rate in Houston and wait and see.

If his rate started to go up to high he would simply shop around again and choose the next best offer out there at the time. He did this until one month electricity rates in Houston were sky high.

He could not find a good low priced variable electricity rate plan or fixed plan for that matter. He started to see how doing the wait and see game may work for a little while but you will eventually get burned.

He went ahead and bit the bullet and signed up for 6 months at a pretty high price for that time in Houston Texas. Fortunately after 6 months rates came back down to normal price levels.

He now is on a fixed electricity rate in Houston Texas and enjoys the price assurance a fixed rate offers and the time saved not having to continuously shop for Houston electricity companies every few months.

Steve is now out of the home remodelling business and has started a small sub sandwhich shop in the East Texas area. He used ElectricityBid to procure his commercial electricity rate and we look forward to working with him in the future when his contract comes up for renewal.

Benbrook Texas Electricity Prices and Plans

In Benbrook Texas you can sign up for electricity rates and plans that are priced at the same price levels as providers price in the Dallas Fort Worth and North Texas region of Texas. In North Texas electricity rates and plans are cheaper than in almost every deregulated are in Texas. Each electricity provider in Benbrook Texas offers a different rate and several plans to choose from. We help sort these electricity rates and plans out from cheapest to most expensive to help an energy consumer find the best price for their electricity in Benbrook TX. The electricity comparison chart below shows electric prices for the North Texas and Benbrook TX area. Simply find the plan and company you want to sign up with and click on the “continue” link. You will then be taken to a sign up page where you can sign up online and be approved for electricity service. If you are asked for a deposit and you cannot afford to pay that deposit you can try another provider in the comparison chart until you get approved for electricity service for little or no deposit.

The latest issue that has hit the news about Benbrook electricity prices and plans has to do with with some of the prepaid electricity companies out there. Many of these companies are changing the way they talk about their product and service because prepaid has started getting a really bad name in the media and among consumers. For instance, some recent news stories have been suggesting some low-income energy consumer’s have actually died from having their electricity prematurely turned off without proper notice. This is probably a long shot but it does hit on an important point. A lot of the prepaid electricity companies have a history of turning off their bad paying customers without proper notice. If a Benbrook Texas electricity customer does not pay their bill on time it does make sense for an electric provider to eventually shut the power off but the question is when does a provider have the right to do this? Their are Public Utility Commission Rules that stipulate what notice must be provided to a customer who has not paid their electricity bill as well as how many days the customer has to pay their bill before their electricity service is turned off.  If a Benbrook Texas electricity provider disconnects an energy consumers power prematurely they can be hit with a large penalty if that customer complains to the PUCT.

If you are a low income customer and you have bad credit or no credit at all we would like to suggest a no deposit electricity plan that is not prepay or pay as you go. You previously could sign up on what was known as a no deposit plan with Bounce Energy. What Bounce did was take $125 from the customer that would be deducted on their first months electricity bill. Instead of paying a deposit with a different electricity company that you would not see for atleast 12 months you would have your $125 deducted on your first bill. If you paid your electricity bill on time the first 3 months Bounce would proactively lower your Benbrook electricity rate to their cheapest rate plan available. Since this is no longer an option be sure to ask for their best rate plan for bad or low credit score customers to make sure they consider you for a low or no deposit electricity rate plan. This plan is no longer available but we have several prepaid providrs to compare in our compare tool at the top right of this page.

For energy customers who have bad credit or just no established credit you may have found yourself being asked for a very large deposit to have electric service in Texas turned on in your name. This has been an issue facing many Texas energy consumers for some time as most electric providers in Texas do not offer a flexible electricity service rate plan for those with bad credit or no established credit. When an energy consumer signs up for electric service with bad credit the deposit requirement asked for by an electricity company can be anywhere from $150 – $1500 depending on the electric provider and the credit score. To avoid this type of deposit issue you can choose an energy supplier that has a low or no deposit electric plan. The provider we recommend above all other low or no deposit electric companies is Bounce Energy. Bounce Electric Company once offered a Fresh Start Plan that allowed a low credit score energy service customer to sign up with them at a slightly higher rate than their normal low cost rate. You remained on this higher rate for 3 months and proved to Bounce Energy that you could pay your electric bill on time and they would proactively lower your electric rate to their normal cheap electricity rate plan. This allowed you to quickly sign up for electric service at a home or apartment without having to worry about how you will come up with up to $1500 to pay a deposit requirement. Most people do not have this kind of extra cash on hand, especially for a deposit you will not receive back until your contract ends. Unfortunately their guaranteed no deposit plan is no longer available although they still have alternative plans that may get your lights turned on with no deposit required or at a low deposit cheaper than most electricity providers require.

Who is Bounce Energy

Bounce Energy is a new electric provider in Texas that was started by a seasoned software director and overall customer experience project leader at a large online marketing and back office electric service customer tracking company. Because of the extensive knowledge this company has on how to sign up electric customers, capital requirements needed to continue signing up energy customers, the ability to bill accurately and timely, and the overall customer satisfication points to consider when working to keep and renew current electric service customers in Texas makes this new electric provider one of the best new energy companies to work with. We are confident that you will find their electric rate, flexible energy agreements and overall abilities to make your customer experience enjoyable that we want to recommend their Guaranteed No Deposit Electric Rate plan as the preferred No Deposit option for customers in a credit crunch.
