How Long it Takes to Connect Residential Electricity

Electricity Express works with different companies to provide you, with the best plan and rates available in your area. We offer Prepaid and Postpaid. Once you have selected the plan that best suits you, there is a couple of thing we have to do before we can connect your electricity service.

After you have paid the deposit (if required) we need to do a recording to make sure you accept the terms and conditions of the energy plan you choose, and that the service address is correct.


How Long it Takes to Connect Residential Electricity ?

After the recording is completed your electricity service takes on average between 2-4 hours to get connected but in some cases it can take as long as 6 hours. This is if there is no problems with your order, if for any reason you need a permit, or a utility truck needs to go to your house and check the cables this can delay the connection of service for up to 24 hours.

The electricity orders are process using computers and your smart meter

which should connect you right away, but the waiting time is because the utility like Oncor has thousands of orders in their queue to process the same day, and all the companies that uses Oncor they all go to the same queue. So they process orders on the first come first serve basis.
