How Can You Apply for the Lite-Up Program in Texas?

Apply for the Lite-Up program in Texas by printing an application from Electric customers who receive Medicaid and SNAP qualify for the program, as do customers whose household income is at or below 125 percent of the federal poverty guidelines.

Applicants must submit copies of their most recent telephone and electric bills, as well as documentation of any benefits they may receive from a Lite-Up qualified program. The name and address on the electric bills turned in with the application must match the name and address of the applicant. Applicants can scan and email completed and signed applications and supplementary materials to the Lite-Up customer support email address, which is available on the Public Utility Commission of Texas website on the Assistance Paying Your Bill page.

The Lite-Up program is designed to help low-income individuals and families lower the cost of their monthly electric bill. The Texas State Legislature assesses and determines the amount of the discount every year. The discount should appear on electric bills 30 to 60 days after an individual or family enrolls in Lite-Up.

The self-enrollment application and Frequently Asked Questions page on the Lite-Up website are available in English and Spanish to improve communication with applicants.
