What Does “Same-Day Electricity” Mean?

When you sign up for same-day electricity service, your electricity company can deliver power to your home the same day, depending on the following:

  • Your electric meter type
  • You complete your enrollment before the provider’s same-day cut-off time.
  • You pay any required deposit.

Same-day electric service can be a great way to make your transition easier, and it doesn't take long to sign up for this type of plan.

So maybe you are wondering...

How Long Does it Take for Electricity to Get Turned On?

For same-day electric service, the electricity company will turn on the power at your new home within 24 hours...in most cases.

This means that once they receive your request for same-day electric service, you can start moving into your new home with working electricity. Or, you can transfer providers with no lapse in service.

In Amy’s case, it was a little different because typically, same-day service cannot start on weekends.

It was the first day that Amy would be living in her new house.

And, because this move-in day fell on a Saturday, she was anticipating that the electric company wouldn't be available to switch service from her old house until Monday morning.

With the right planning, you can be confident in knowing that there won't be any surprises about when to expect power.
