Southern Utilities Company
In some parts of Bullard such as the rural areas the city of Bullard Texas does not service trash pickup or water. In these rural areas you will want to contact Southern Utilities Company. Southern Utilities only does the water so you will need sign up for a separate trash service. We recommend Republic Services for your Bullard Texas rural trash service.

Bullard Electric Utilities
There are around 20 Bullard electric companies and we feature the ones we vet and recommend from our energy consulting expertise on our website: https://electricrates.com.
Some areas of Bullard use Cherokee County Co-op which means you only have that one choice if you are in their service territory.
TXU Energy is an electric company often chosen in Bullard Texas but they are not always the cheapest and not a company we recommend. At the time of this writing the cheapest 12 month fixed residential electric rate on the TXU Energy website stated it was 14.50 and called the plan the “Super Saver 12”. After looking closer I saw that if your using 1,000 kWh you would pay about 19.30 cents per kWh. I use about this much electricity at my house and that is too high of a price compared to many others available.
As you can see a rate plan might be advertised at what first appears to be a low rate but when looking closer your paying 19.3 cents per kWh. We offer rate plans that are clear and give you an affordable price. As your energy consultant we desire to help save you money and Bullard Texas and have you refer your friends to us so we can win their business and help them as well.
Among the 20 retail electric providers in Bullard Texas there were many providers offering lower electric rates available compared to TXU Energy. Learning about the electric rate comparison process you will see many rate plans where the price on the advertisement looks exceptional. When you look closer at the Electricity Facts Label it appears completely different. Unfortunately many electric companies show a cheap rate at first but the details show something much higher. We help cut through all this an get you an affordable electric rate without all the muck you have to wade through to find the real price.
Important Consideration Regarding Bullard Texas Electric Rates
Many electric rate plans in Bullard are under 12 months and offer what they call in the industry a “teaser rate” or “introductory rate”. About 65% of people who sign up for a 6 month or fewer electric rate term forget to renew at the time required.
The short term electricity rate plan goes up anywhere from 23% – 239% once you come off contract. The Bullard electric company has to make a profit somehow so when your introductory rate expires many people get burned when they forget to renew. It is a sad reality that often low-income households in Bullard Texas are most effected by this practice.

Bullard Internet Utilities
Many in Bullard have raved about the T-Mobile hotspot but based on your area these hotspots can be hit or miss. A hotspot is usually a more affordable option than other wired highspeed internet options.
If you are in Cherokee County Cooperatives service territory they offer highspeed internet for a little over $50 a month. It is a great highspeed internet option but unfortunately not all of Bullard Texas is covered.
