Automatic Credit Card
With the Automatic Credit Card Payment Program, your monthly electric bill is automatically charged to your credit/debit card or pinless debit card, no sooner than five days after the billing date listed on your electric bill. You know your electric bill is paid on time and without having to worry about writing a check, buying a stamp, or losing your payment in the mail.
With this option, you will also enjoy the benefits of eBill Electronic Billing which enables you to access your billing and account information electronically, day or night. If not already enrolled in eBill, you will be prompted to do so since participation in eBill is mandatory for participation in the Automatic Credit Card Payment Program.
