Considering Electric Bills in North Texas

When you are looking for rent house in Denton, Texas be sure to remember the utilities.  As a rule of thumb, utilities(including cable) will be approximately 25% of your rent amount in the Denton, Texas area.  You should always be an informed renter and know which utilities you’ll be responsible for and approximately how much you’ll be spending each month. This will help you manage your bills and keep extra dollars in your pocket.

Comparing Electricity Prices & Plans

In 2002, Texas deregulated the electric companies. As a result, you have an unlimited number of electric companies from which to choose. Whether we’re all receiving a better rate now is open to debate. Some of the larger local providers include Reliant Energy and TXU Energy. The prices and plans vary widely depending on your personal usage(the plans tend to reward more usage), so trying to calculate your monthly electric bill will be difficult.

Remember, especially if you’re new to the Denton, Texas area, that summers are hot and your air conditioner will be running constantly.  Your rental homes’ hot water heater and main heater, may also be electric.  A little homework researching electricity plans now will save you a lot of money down the road.

Credit Problems and the Utilities
