Payments No Longer Accepted in Field: Ways to Pay

Each month, members are sent a bill, or e-bill, letting them know when their payment for electric service is due. If your account is past due, you are sent a reminder notice by mail or email and a courtesy phone call to the phone numbers we have on your account. While the majority of members pay on time each month, some members wait until the lineman shows up to disconnect their power to pay their bill. 

For the safety of our employees, and the efficiency of the cooperative, our personnel will no longer take  payments in the field. We encourage members to take advantage of the many ways to pay an electric bill listed below. Visit to learn more.
