Why do Texas electric companies require a credit verification?

Most power companies in Texas require a deposit in case you don’t pay your electric bill.  If you have poor credit history or no credit, the deposit acts as an insurance policy to the light company.

The best way to avoid paying a deposit is by paying ahead for your power. When you choose prepaid lights you not only avoid a credit check, but also many fees including disconnection penalties.

Do all energy companies do credit checks?

There are several light companies that don’t do credit checks. Quick Electricity does not require a credit check for our pay-as-you-go light service.

However, if you want a fixed rate electricity plan, you’ll have to agree to a credit verification. If your FICO credit score is over 620, you shouldn’t have a problem getting approved for energy services.

How much is a deposit for electricity when you have bad credit?

An electricity deposit can cost anywhere from $100 to $200 in a large apartment, and even more for a house. At Quick Electricity you only pay for the energy you use, and it’s only $49 to get power hooked up today.

We offer a priority connection and lights are on within an hour of payment, in most cases. You can open a new account today by calling us at 877-509-8946, or by registering online.

Do you get your utility deposit back?

In most cases, an electric utility deposit works like any other security deposit. Your money is refunded after you make your final payment. If you fail to pay your electric bill on time, you risk not getting your refund.  

Unfortunately, some electric companies make it harder for you to get your money back.

Always review the EFL, or electricity facts label, before selecting an electricity plan in Texas. The EFL is the small print surrounding the contract terms.
