What Happens After You Signup?
You don't have to pick up the phone or email anyone. After you signup online with Honest Gorilla, here's what happens.
Welcome Email: Honest Gorilla messages your new electric company to welcome you, and they will provide important account info and service details.
Initial Meter Read: Your new company notifies your local utility for meter reading. You don’t have to do anything. You have 3 days to cancel, if you wish.
Start Using Electricity: Once the meter is switched, you’ll start to use electricity and get billed at your new low rate.
Final Payment: Pay your old provider’s final bill if switching.

Many factors influence electricity usage and costs. We can estimate it for you by answering some questions, or sign up for free at Smart Meter Texas to access 12 months of usage history and plug in your data to get a good estimate for your unit costs. Of course, this does not account for lifestyle differences between you and the previous tenant.
Enter your zip code below and the system will automatically determine your utility company. And signing up for service is just as easy — follow the prompts, choose the best plan for you and your lifestyle, and within minutes you’ll be signed up and ready to go.
Security deposits vary by provider based on credit. We offer no-deposit options for low/no credit. Switching is free unless you want to expedite or pick your start date.
You may contact or visit your local utility company online to report an outage and check its status. For all other electrical issues, contact your property management company.
