Your bill is more than just the cost of the energy you use. It shows various fees and charges, why we collect them and who gets to keep the money.
There are many options to choose from. The Payment Options at a Glance page provides a summary of all the options.
Pay by Phone is available to you at no cost. You can be anywhere and securely transfer your payment directly to us 24 hours a day. Your payment will post to your account the following business day. Pay by Phone is a one-time payment option. You will have to call us every time you wish to make a Pay by Phone payment.
Additional information is available on the Pay by Phone payment page.
