How Does Prepaid Electricity Work?

Prepaid electricity is an easy way to be a Texas electricity customer. All you have to do is pay for your electricity before you use it. Then you go about your routine, whether it’s cooking dinner, making coffee, watching television, or however you spend your time.

And instead of a bill every month, you’ll receive alerts to your mobile device and/or email telling you how much electricity you’re using and how much remains on your balance.

In the long run, this can be a powerful tool to help you save energy and money.

But what happens if you run out? 

When you get close to using up your balance, you’ll receive another set of notifications delivered electronically. These notifications will show your remaining balance, along with an estimate of how many days you have remaining.

Of course, when you get that estimate, it’s important to remember that your electricity needs can change from day to day. That’s why it’s always a good idea to put more money into your account as soon as you get the low-balance notice. This way, you can keep the house lights on.

If you do lose power because your prepaid electricity balance becomes empty, simply replenish your balance, and your power will be restored.
