Which electric companies have low deposits?


Credit checks and deposits are sometimes an unfortunate reality of ordering electricity. We understand that you just need to get your lights turned on, and we want to help! These 5 companies have generally had fair, consistent deposit amounts. If a low deposit is important to you, we suggest you start with one of these companies.


Can I get a prepaid electricity plan with a fixed rate?


YES YOU CAN! Payless Power has just introduced a prepaid electricity plan with a 12 month fixed rate! This means you won't have any credit check or deposit AND you'll know you have a steady, fixed-rate electric plan for the next year! It's the best of both worlds for anyone who just needs a little help getting into a fixed rate plan.


These plans are good if you need a low deposit to get started Katy, TX
