How Prepaid Works
You must maintain a credit balance on your prepaid account. Charges are deducted daily from your available credit. If your credit balance falls below $20, you are notified by phone, text, or email.
Our member service department can give you historical use information so you can plan for both summer and winter energy use. You can check your balance by phone or through the SmartHub app.
Once enrolled, you can access this information in the comfort of your home or on the go with your smartphone or iPad. You have access to your prepaid balance 24/7. Through SmartHub, you can review your daily consumption quickly and easily, helping you manage your energy use for maximum benefit.
Call our member service representatives for more information about the program.
Even Pay gives members the opportunity to avoid the ups and downs of their electric bills. Participating members pay an identical amount each month based on electricity use during the past 12 months. The 12th month, members receive a bill that balances their account.
Depending on actual electricity use, the bill makes up the difference between actual use and the average bill amount. If a balance is owed, it must be paid in full. If a credit has accumulated, it can be credited to your account. If the amount is more than $25, you can request a refund by check.
You are eligible for Even Pay if you have lived at the same address for at least 12 months and meet credit criteria. The Even Pay sign-up option runs from February through September.
