Discount Power Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign up for service with Discount Power?
Signing up is quick and easy with our online enrollment.
Once I sign up, how long will it take for my Discount Power service to begin?
If you're starting service at a new location, your service can begin within 1 to 3 business days after you sign up. If you're switching from another provider, your service with us will begin in less than 10 business days after you sign up. You may be required to satisfy certain requirements, such as paying a deposit or providing valid ID, which could delay your start date. You are also able to select a specific start date for your electricity service to begin with Discount Power, if preferred.
Will my electric service be interrupted when I switch?
Switching your retail electric provider will not interrupt your service. Your current local wires company will still deliver your electricity as it does today, with the same power lines and service trucks.
Is there an early termination fee if I cancel service with Discount Power?
You won't have an early termination fee if you are on our variable-price, month-to-month plan. If you are on one of our fixed-price, term plans, we buy electricity to serve your account before you use it; therefore, if you terminate your contract early a cancellation fee may apply.
What are my payment options with Discount Power?
We accept payment by check, bank draft, or credit card. You can also set up your automatic payment by credit card or bank draft. We accept MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
What if a deposit is required?
You will be notified during online enrollment if a deposit is required. If one is required, it was assessed based on your credit score. One may also have been assessed if we were unable to identify you with the credit bureau. Using your social security number is the easiest form of identification.
Is there an alternative to paying a deposit?
If it has been determined that a deposit is required for your account, your enrollment will be placed on hold until your deposit requirement is met. You can pay your deposit during online enrollment, through our online account manager, or by calling us at 1-877-455-4674 Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm CST. If you qualify for LITE-UP, the low income telephone and electric utilities program, your deposit can be paid in two (2) installments. Please contact us for additional information by phone or email at email@example.com.
How do I find the status of my online enrollment?
Once you create your online account, you can find the status of your enrollment. If you do not wish to create your online account at this time, you can also get an enrollment status update by calling our Customer Care Center at 1-877-455-4674 Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm CST.
