Sam Houston Electric Cooperative is proud to offer “pay as you go” electricity. With your new myPowerUsage meter, you have the option to sign up for myPrePay. There’s no difference in the service you’ll receive—just in HOW and WHEN you pay for it.
When you sign up, you pay as often and as much as you’d like. You’re in control of your budget, your usage and your payments.
myPrePay offers Sam Houston EC members electric service without deposits and reconnect fees. There is a nominal monthly fee of $5 added to your myPrePay account—just like many pre-pay programs. Each payment transaction must be a minimum of $10. And best of all, there’s no deposit required for myPrePay accounts.
