  1. How does prepaid electricity work?
    You pay for your electricity before you use it. With postpaid, which is what you may already be familiar with, you pay at the end of the month when you know your usage. Postpaid companies often charge a large deposit if you don’t have a great credit score. The theory is that, since your credit isn’t the greatest, you present a higher risk of not paying. So, these companies collect a deposit in case that happens (usually a few hundred dollars, depending on your credit score).
  2. Why choose prepaid versus postpaid electricity?
    Prepaid electric companies have created their programs for customers who struggle financially. With prepaid electricity, you often don’t need a credit check or big initial deposit to get electricity. You may pay a small amount down to open your account. That’s it. Then, you can usually pay-as-you go. It works if you have a tight budget or unpredictable cash flow. Many companies let you pay as frequently as you want – even daily if that’s what you need to do.
  3. What happens if I miss a payment?
    This is hard to do. You get daily text and/or email notifications (your choice) of your account balance. For example, the message comes at 7 A.M. You have until 1 P.M. to make your payment to avoid disconnection.
  4. What if I can’t make a payment on time?
    It happens. Our affiliated prepaid light company is designed to help you out. First, you won’t pay any hidden fees. Second, when you know you have a cash flow crunch, call us. You can get a free extension that lasts until your next paycheck. You can also get deferred payment plans to help you make it through.
  5. Do I have to worry about hidden fees or other traps?
    At many prepaid electric companies, yes. With our chosen prepaid light companies, no. Many prepaid electric companies advertise low rates to get you in and then whack you with hidden fees to boost their profits. With our selected prepaid light companies, you never pay any hidden fees. Hidden fees simply don’t exist. And you don’t sign a contract. That means you have no risk. Simply leave and go to another electric company if you’re not happy, for any reason.
  6. Do I save money with you? How can I increase my savings?
    Many prepaid electric companies use hidden fees to make up for low advertised rates. With our chosen prepaid light companies, you get the lowest rates, and there’s no hidden fees. You can also check your electricity usage in real-time. We use ‘real-time readings for real-time savings.” You can learn exactly how you’re using electricity right now. Your usage information gets transmitted to us from your smart meter. That means you can unplug devices and appliances to start saving immediately, or make other changes in your electricity usage as you see fit. You no longer need to wait a whole month to make the changes, get your bill, and then find out if what you did actually helped you save money or not.
