Years ago, when the electricity market changed in the Hutto area, electric utility customers were introduced to a system they knew little about.

Most electric utility companies won’t take the time to explain the key market issues that would help the consumer understand more about this market change.

In fact, it is our opinion that many of these electricity companies would like to keep the consumer UNINFORMED.  We are the not one of those companies.

Questions Some People Ask:

Once I get the service connected, who do I call if the power goes out?

In our area you will call “Oncor Electric Delivery.” This company DOES NOT sell electricity; but they maintain the wires/poles and read the meters. A 24 hour emergency service phone number will be provided on your bill. That number for this area is 888-313-4747.


How long will it take to begin my service?

A “Standard Connection” will take 2-3 business days.   For instance, if you call on a Monday, your service can start as soon as Wednesday.  If you call on a Friday, the Standard Connection could occur on the following Tuesday.   However, you may request an “expedite” which can get your electricity service started on the same day if requested early enough on that day.  For instance, you complete your order by 10:00 am on Monday, there is a excellent chance your electricity will be on by the end of that day; sometimes within an hour or two.  Call for specifics.  (See next question for connection fee prices)


How much will it cost to open my account?

There are NO ‘fees’ due at the time of your request for service. (We do not have an automatic requirement for a deposit: see next question on the deposit issue).   The connection fees are minimal, and due on your first bill.  The standard connection fee is less than $3.  The additional fee for an expedite is approximately $5.


Will I have to pay a deposit to start my service?

That will be determined at the time of enrollment.  An instant credit check will be performed to determine if a deposit will be requested.  (Stellar credit is not required to avoid a deposit).   If a deposit is requested, you will find we have some of the lowest deposit requirements in the industry.   For a house, deposits range from $70 to $280.  For apartments or duplexes, deposits range from $40 to $160.   You also will have the option of paying half the deposit at the time of enrollment, and the second half on your first bill.  Call for details.


If I am switching my electricity service provider, how many days will that take?

The switch to another electricity provider in Hutto will usually take place in 1-2 business days. With the standard switch there are no connection fees. You can also ‘self’ select a switch date, up to 90 days in the future, for a fee of approximately $5.00.  The self selected switch date is a great tool when you know your current contract is going to expire in a couple of months, and you would like to take advantage of the low rates available at the time of enrollment.

Can I pay my bill online?

Yes. You will have access to an online account where you can pay your bill online, set up auto-bill pay, view your usage history, print past bills, change contact information and perform other tasks related to your account.
