Since the 2002 deregulation of the electricity industry having the power to choose and compare electricity rates means keeping your electricity bills as low as possible for the many home owners and renters of the city. McKinney residents can choose from postpaid electricity plans to prepaid electricity plans. Postpaid electricity rates plans have terms of six, twelve, and twenty four months. Having the ability to tie down your energy rates for extended periods of time can help keep home energy bills as low as possible. Prepaid electricity is also another great option for the many renters and home owners who have credit issues which can result in high deposit requirements. Prepaid energy plans have no credit checks, no deposits and no long term contract terms which means all you need is a valid address with a smart meter to get your electricity connected. With so much growth in McKinney many small to large businesses have also opened in the city to keep up with the high consumer demand. Many businesses need to take advantage of their right to compare electricity rates so keep high energy bills as low as possible.
