Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

A “move-in” is when you are establishing electric service in your name for the first time in a new property. A “switch” is when you already have electric service in your name at your current residence with another retail electric provider, but you would like to switch to a different energy provider.
There is no cost to switch from your current retail electric provider to Axon Power, as long as your account is in good standing* with your current retail electric provider. Your TDU may charge you a fee if you request expedited electric service, but you will be informed ahead of time if applicable.

*Please make sure your account with your current retail electric provider is in good standing and that you will not incur an Early Termination Fees, which can be found in your Terms of Service document.
No, please do not contact your current retail electric provider if you are switching because this could cause confusion about your service. When you enroll with Axon Power, we will notify your old retail electric provider via a database called ERCOT.
A “standard switch” selection can take up to seven (7) days to be completed. If you select a specific calendar day, your electric service will begin on that day; however, your TDU may charge a fee.
No, there is no interruption in your electricity during the switching process.
You may be assessed a deposit based on your credit score. However, you may be eligible to waive your deposit if you meet the criteria below:
  • If you are Victim of Family Violence per the Texas Family Code §71.004 you may submit the certification letter from the Public Utility Commission of Texas. This letter can be found here.
  • If you are 65 years or older, and are a customer in good standing with your previous electricity provider.

Credit balances due to overpayments will be refunded within ten (10) business days of the customer's request. If customer is no longer receiving electricity services from Axon Power, credit balances due to overpayments will be refunded within sixty (60) days of the customer's final bill. Unless a refund is requested, credit balances will remain on the account to apply to future bills. With the exception of payments made by cash, refunds will be issued in the same method of payment as the original payment (i.e., if a payment was made with a credit card, the refund will be issued to the same credit card account). If the original payment was made with cash, the refund will be issued by check.
Axon Power offers electricity service throughout the state of Texas in deregulated areas.
