If you are relocating to a deregulated area from another state or you’re just moving across town; you’re going to have to set up energy service in your new home. Direct Home Connect can help! Getting setup with an electricity or natural gas provider is a phone call away. We can set up your home services including cable, satellite, internet and security before you move in!
But what if you wanted to set up your natural gas services yourself? Here’s a quick reference guide to setting up electricity or natural gas service in your new home.
CHOOSING A SUPPLIER
In a deregulated energy market, you can choose to purchase your energy from your utility or from a retail energy supplier. The two exceptions are Texas and Georgia. In Texas deregulated areas, you must choose a retail electric provider and in Georgia’s Atlantic Gas Light service territory, you must choose a natural gas provider, rather than purchasing your energy from the utility. If you have a single provider in your state, it may just pay to call them directly and schedule them to come out and get you set up.
To sign up for your new plan, you can simply call to set up your new service, but a few of our offers are only available online.When you call, one of our experienced representatives can answer any questions you have about the plan, rate, or company. He or she will also take your personal information and conduct a credit check to determine whether you’ll need to pay a deposit. Once all the paperwork is in order, you’ll be all set to start receiving electric or gas service at your home.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
Once you’ve signed up for a plan, your new retail energy supplier will work with the local utility to ensure that your electricity or natural gas supply is connected to your new home on the right date. Some plans even offer same-day service.How do I transfer my energy service?
Even if you’re moving to a new area, you may not need to find a new retail energy provider. Many suppliers operate in more than one area, so you may be able to transfer your electricity or natural gas service when you move.Just call your current retail energy provider to find out if it can still supply power to your new address. If your provider is able to transfer your service, just let it know your move-in date. The provider will coordinate with the utility to deliver energy to your new home at that time.
