  1. Try searching without the street type (i.e. Lane, Drive, etc).  For example: 1234 Main instead of 1234 Main St.
  2. For apartment numbers, try with and without the # sign.
  3. If you see an address ending with "TEMP," do not choose it.
Note: TrueCost only serves portions of Texas with retail choice.  Addresses served by Entergy cannot be matched.

Shopping for Electricity?

Did you know that TrueCost can do much more than just help you find your Electric Service Identifier (ESID)?

With your meter number, TrueCost can import your smart meter data.  This lets you:

  • Compare the electric costs of various plans based on your last 12 months' usage.  We'll show you estimates of what you'd pay on current plans if your consumption is about the same as last year. Plus, TrueCost's estimates include all taxes, fees and fine-print charges.
  • View your meter data.  See exactly how much electricity you're using throughout the day.
