Key Points

  • Smart meters allow electric companies to connect power to your house remotely, making a same-day electricity connection possible.

  • Same-day prepaid and no-deposit plans can help customers have control over their payments and energy usage.

Same-day electricity FAQs

  • If your home has a smart meter, you can typically get your electricity turned on the same day you enroll in a plan before the provider’s cutoff time. If you don’t enroll by the company’s specified time, your service will likely be turned on the following day.

  • Choose a provider offering same-day services and sign up for a plan. When you sign up, you can contact a SaveOnEnergy agent to ensure your service is turned on as soon as possible.

  • Each provider has different credit requirements, but Texas electricity companies do perform credit checks during their enrollment process. If you have a low credit score, you may be subject to paying a deposit with your plan. However, you can sign up for a same-day prepaid electricity plan to avoid an upfront deposit, regardless of your credit score. 

  • Most Texas electricity providers offer service Monday through Saturday. Same-day electricity is typically not available on Sundays. Cut-off times vary by provider but are usually between 2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
