No Deposit No Credit Check Electricity Plans in Houston TX

Normally, when searching for electricity service in Houston, a social security number or driver's license is needed. Depending on a person's credit rating, a refundable deposit or additional paperwork may be needed.

Often, medical, education-related, or job-related events can cause changes in credit rating. In addition, current immigration, graduation, or divorce situations may temporarily leave someone with bad credit or no credit rating at all.

Unfortunately, this frequently results in high-deposit requests from Houston electricity providers of as much as $400 or more that are not possible for some consumers to pay. For this reason, no credit check and no deposit energy plans have become a preferred option.

Prepaid, No Credit Check, and No Deposit Electric plans permit you to sign up for electricity service for as low as $39 depending on the size of your home. Prices for these plans are usually 20-30% higher than conventional post-paid plans.



Here at Texas Electricity Ratings, we've reviewed the plans available, and we think these plans represent the best overall value for consumers.

How Do You Start Pre-paid Electric Service in the Houston area?

When you have found a plan, the No Deposit Electricity Company will require you make a payment to establish a positive balance before starting your service. This initial payment is called a connection balance.

Pre-paid electricity service does not require a deposit, but you will need to make a payment to the provider before your power is turned on. Your No Deposit Electricity Company simply requires a balance of approximately $20-$50 that will be used as a bank to establish electricity service. As you use electricity, they will reduce your account balance to pay for the usage. You may also need to pay a Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU) fee, which may make the total due prior to starting your service more than $50.

When your account gets lower, the provider will contact you via text and email to have you add more money to the account.

How Prepaid or Pay-as-You-Go Electricity Service Works

Prepaid plans are quite self explanatory. Prepaid electricity service in Houston means you purchase your electricity prior to using it. With pre-paid electricity service, you pay a No Credit Check Electric Supplier upfront that manages your payments and power usage. You register for service and make an initial payment by charge card or by means of cash at a check cashing location.

You are then contacted by text message whenever you have to refill your account in order to keep your service active. If you are trying to find affordable power with no deposit, this is the simplest way to do so, as long as you keep your account up to date.

How much does it cost to start service?

The up-front payment required by different prepaid providers will vary anywhere from $10 to $50 depending on the provider and the plan. This table shows the different up-front payments required for different plans.

    What are the cheapest prepaid electricity plans in Houston?

    Long Term No Deposit Electricity Service

    If you really don't want to go with a pre-paid plan, these plans may work better for you. Instead of a deposit, you pay a one-time non-refundable fee when you start the plan. Terms ranging from 3 months to 12 months.

    Fixed Rate No Deposit Plans will require a non-refundable up-front payment of $39 to $149. Athough the fee is typically non-refundable, you have the benefit of working to restore your credit, and pay for your electricity service after you use it.

    You tend to pay a somewhat greater rate and a higher monthly minimum charge but the benefit is attractive to many customers.

    Certain companies offer these plans, such as:

    What incentives are available for No Deposit Electricity Plans?

    Many No Deposit Electric companies serving Houston provide incentives of up to 1 or 2 months of free energy or cash amounts of as much as $200. Some electric suppliers also have pre-paid electricity with free nights and weekends. These rewards are frequently paid out after 6 months and 12 months of continuous service and require that you maintain your account current, which means you have not had any late payments or service turn offs due to non-payment.

    Will I Get a Bill?

    No. Pre-paid Electric Service clients do not get a regular monthly bill. Instead, you will get text and emails from your No Deposit Electricity Company updating you with your balance. Your No Deposit electric provider will supply a Summary of Usage and Payment (SUP) for up to twelve months of usage. The SUP will show your usage, your charges, the average cost of service and payments by calendar month.

    My Power has Been Turned Off. How Do I Get It Turned Back On?

    First , you need to settle the previous balance before you can reconnect. If you are trying to switch to a different provider and have not paid off your previous balance, you will not be able to change without paying your previous balance. As soon as your balance is paid, your electricity company will need you to make a payment to create a new connection balance in order to restart service.

    Your No Deposit Energy Company may require you to make your balance payment at a third-party payment processor that acts as an agent of the service provider. You begin to receive service within 2 hours of paying your balance.

    Can I get a Deferred Payment Plan if I live in Houston, Texas?

    You may request a Deferred Payment Plan if:

    1) During extreme weather, your account reaches a negative balance of $50 or more. An extreme weather event occurs when the National Weather Service issues a heat advisory or a cold alert in your area.

    2) A State of Disaster has been declared. The Governor and the Public Utility Commission requires that deferred payment plans be offered when a State of Disaster is declared.

    3) Under-billing. Your Retail Electric Provider (REP) has under-billed your account for reasons other than theft of service.

    If you enter into a deferred payment plan, your REP may apply a switch-hold until the account is paid in full. A switch-hold effectively locks your account until your balance is paid off.
