Getting Service at an Existing Location

 Getting Service at an Existing Location

To get service at a location where electric service has previously existed:

1. Fill out our online application for service. This is only available for locations that have had service with Sam Houston EC in the past.

Or, fill out and submit an Application for Membership.
*Be sure to print this document on legal-size paper, or select "shrink to fit" when you print this document.

*Please note that when establishing a membership or account in the name of a commercial entity, the company must be a corporation, or articles of incorporation must be provided.

Your meter number can be found on the face of the meter. It begins with "99" and is eight digits long. (Example: 99 000 000)

2. Provide a copy of your photo ID.

    3. Pay $25 connect fee ($75 if trip is required) and any required deposit to Sam Houston EC.

    Application, copy of ID, connect fee and deposit may be returned to any of our three Sam Houston EC office locations in person, by fax or by mail.

    When the application is processed, you will receive a unique customer number. From that point forward, each account you establish as a member will always be associated with your unique customer number.

    An Application for Membership is required for all new Sam Houston EC members, or when service is requested after membership has been inactive for three consecutive months.
