When you receive your invoice will depend on when your electricity meter is read by Centerpoint.
Centerpoint is the electric “delivery” company in Houston and they set the schedule for reading electricity meters. You will typically receive your electricity bill about 4 to 7 days after your meter has been read by Centerpoint.
If you have started new electricity service, your first invoice can arrive anywhere from 1 to 5 weeks from the date your electricity meter was ‘turned on;’ again, this depends on the meter reading schedule in your area.
Once you get your electricity bill, you will have at least 10 days to pay before it is considered ‘late.’
If the bill is not paid by the due date, a ‘disconnect notice’ will be sent alerting you that you have about 10 more days to pay the bill before a disconnect occurs.
This gives you approximately 3 weeks to pay the bill before a disconnection for non-payment would occur.
