Your ESID Number, or Electric Service Identifier, is a number that is unique to your property address. Pronounced “Easy I.D.” it’s also known as an ESIID, ESI ID or ESI-ID. You can’t find your Texas meter number or ESID on your actual physical meter. But you can find it using our free ERCOT ESID Lookup Tool.
