How do I sign up for electricity with Pulse Power?

Why is the plan I want not available to me?

Some plans are only available in certain zip codes or geographic areas. Some plans are only available for a limited time, so we may have retired the plan before you were able to sign up. Some plans are linked to a specific promotion, so make sure to go back to the original source and link off from there.

I finished the enrollment process online, but I received a message that says I need to send more information before my service can start. What do I do?

Several factors can result in the need to send us more information. You will receive a confirmation email, detailing the next steps needed after enrollment. Please follow the steps within the email response to determine the next steps for service with us!

Where can I find my ESI ID?

Your ESI ID (electric service identifier) is a unique 17- or 22-digit number given to an electricity delivery point in the ERCOT market. In other words, it is a long number typically used to identify your electric meter. You may also see it written as ESI ID.

This number is often visible on your meter, but it also appears on your electric bill and in your online Pulse Power account. To find your ESI ID online:

  • Log in to your My Account.
  • Go to your My Account dashboard and see your ESI ID under the Service Information box at the bottom of the page.
  • Your ESI ID is listed under the name of your plan.

How much will my average electric bill be?

Your bill will vary depending on how much electricity you use, the plan you are on, the weather, the energy efficiency of your home and many other factors.

How far in advance can I schedule my transfer or move online?

  • You may schedule a transfer up to 90 days prior to relocation. (No connections on holidays)
  • For new construction, the permit requirements must be met before the utility can process the request.

Do I need to sign up my new location for online account management if I already have an online account with Pulse Power?

Yes. The transfer process will create a new service account, resulting in a new account number. Once complete, your new account will require you to register your new address information for your online account.

Will I have to re-enroll in my current Pulse Power billing and payment plans like paperless billing and AutoPay?

Paperless billing and AutoPay will not transfer to your new address automatically. You will need to elect these features for your new account upon registering.

What happens to my deposit when I transfer service?

Your deposit will transfer to your new address.

What is the cost to transfer my service?

Pulse Power will not charge fees for transferring service, however, your local utility company will charge a move-in fee to establish electric service in your name at the location. This fee, if any, will appear on your first bill.

Does my service end date have to be the same as my service begin date?

No, your disconnect and connection dates do not have to be the same. However, if there is a gap between the two, you should ensure the dates of your move in correlate to the date you will need services within your new premise.

What if the electricity is already on at my new address?

You will still need to submit a transfer request so that we can establish service in your name. Otherwise, the electricity can be turned off at any time based on the previous customer's move-out request, and you will be without power.

How much will my average electric bill be?

Your bill will vary depending on how much electricity you use, the plan you are on, the weather, the energy efficiency of your home and many other factors.

I'm moving out of Texas. How do I get the electricity disconnected at my current residence?

Please fill out our Online Cancelation Form to request a move-out.

Help! I accidentally transferred service to the wrong address.

Give us a call right away at 833-785-7797 with the correct service address. Failure to do so could cause a delay in your service start date.

Where can I find the rates, length, and other details of the plan I signed up for?

Check your inbox for the confirmation email you received after the enrollment. It will contain your contract related documentation.

What happens when the plan I sign up for ends?

You will receive numerous notices from Pulse Power before your contract expires, alerting you that it’s time to renew your contract.

What is energy deregulation and how does it affect me?

In short, deregulation allows you to choose where you purchase your electricity. That means you can now shop for your energy plan the same way you do for phone and internet service.

Energy deregulation separates the production of energy from its delivery. Utilities have typically been responsible for both supplying and delivering energy. Deregulation breaks up this monopoly, allowing you to purchase energy from independent suppliers.

What is an EFL?

Electricity Facts Label (‘EFL’) is a standard disclosure required by the Public Utility Commission of Texas (‘PUCT’) for every electricity plan offered by Retail Electric Providers (“REP”) in the state.
