We have plans to support you and your energy needs
Much of our daily lives and well-being hinge on working lights and electricity. When setting up a new home or switching services, same-day electricity is vital in order to seamlessly get back to your routines for work, life, and play. Payless Power, a Texas-based light and power company, understands that you need reliable electricity fast without a lengthy set-up process, cumbersome pre-approval hoops to jump through, and a hefty deposit. With this in mind, a company that offers same-day electricity service is a company that understands the needs of its clientele.
“And God said, ‘Let there be light’ and there was light, but the Electricity Board said He would have to wait until Thursday to be connected.”
-Comedian Spike Milligan
Moving is stressful enough. Getting electricity turned on should be high on your list, but the least of your worries. Working lights, air conditioning and appliances make settling into your house or apartment much easier. Texas residents can find a Payless Power plan that’s connected the same day with affordable prepaid and pay-as-you-go plans.
Payless Power can connect your electricity within the same day as long as your house has a smart meter that can be remotely activated. If you’re wondering whether or not your house has a smart meter, don’t worry! It’s likely you do as the majority of Texas households (7.3 million) have a smart meter. If you’re a new customer and want your electricity switched on within the same day, contact Payless Power using the customer care number (866) 963-9353, and we’ll get you started.
Moving into a house?
In Texas, you can set up your electricity service up to 60 days in advance when moving into a house. If that detail has fallen through the cracks, call us early on move-in day (or the day before) to get service connected.
Moving into an apartment?
Your apartment complex will likely have lights on in their name for showings, but will then schedule a “move out” date when you move in, meaning you’ll need to set up your own utilities. Many apartment complexes provide a list of electricity companies, hours, and phone numbers.
To keep your lights on, same-day electricity is the cheapest and fastest way to go. After paying pricey apartment deposits, fees, and first-month’s rent, choosing a Payless Power prepaid plan is affordable. You can pay up to $75 to get started, which is not a deposit, but a prepaid balance that goes toward the cost of your electricity.
In Texas, dozens of companies offer same-day, prepaid electricity to give residents energy options in the deregulated state. After you search online to compare prices and find available service for your address, choosing your light company should be easy. As a state leader in prepaid electricity, Payless Power can save you up to 20 percent on your electric bills, plus features hassle-free set-up with no deposit or credit history.
