The idea is simple

Through the use of energy-efficient meters also called smart meters, Electric Now can receive information about your daily electricity usage and make this information available to you by text message, email, and our Online Account Manager.

With our Pay-As-You-Go service, there’s no difference in the way you use electricity, just HOW and WHEN you pay for it. Prepay the full month in advance, or pay just enough to get you through the next week. It’s your choice.

Whether you prepay $10 or $100 – monthly, weekly or randomly – Electric Now will keep track of your power consumption and alert you by text message or email when your account is running low and when it’s time to make a payment to reload your electricity account to avoid interruption of service.

By using smart meter technology, Electric Now is able to provide same-day Texas electricity services in as little as two hours, making the switch even easier.

To use Electric Now Pay-As-You-Go electricity, you must have a provisioned smart meter and a cell phone that can receive text messages to receive your prepaid electricity usage communications. Whether you're looking for Houston, Dallas, or Corpus Christi energy, Electric Now is your source of great rates for Texas electricity with no deposit and no credit check. Check your eligibility to find out if your home has a provisioned smart meter.
