Sam Houston EC Offers Landlord Connect Program


Active Sam Houston Electric Cooperative members who own rental property may wish to participate in a program that automatically puts service at a rental property back into the landlord’s name when a renter requests a disconnect.

“This will increase convenience for the landlord as long as we have the agreement on file,” Dalila Clift, Sam Houston EC member services trainer, said. “They will no longer need to call into the office to cancel the disconnect request to put it back into their name.”

Clift said that since this program prevents a service from being disconnected, the fee will be much lower. Instead of a $75 connect fee, the landlord will only accrue a $25 fee for transferring service from the tenant.

In order to participate in this program, Sam Houston EC members can contact a member service representative at 1-800-458-0381 to fill out a Landlord Agreement and have their account set up as a Landlord/Tenant account.
