EZPay is Claiborne Electric’s pay-as-you-go billing option, and it allows members to pay for electricity in advance instead of paying a traditional electric bill on a pre-determined due date.
EZPay is similar to purchasing gasoline for a vehicle. Members can purchase electricity for their account in advance, like pumping gasoline into a vehicle’s tank. As the home uses electricity, the account balance diminishes based on the amount of kilowatt-hours used. When the balance is low, the member receives alerts that a payment is needed. The best part is that members who use the EZPay program have no deposit, no set due date, no late fees, no disconnection fees, and no reconnection fees!
Signing up for EZPay is easy! A member simply purchases $50.00 worth electricity and signs an EZPay agreement form! After that, the member can pay any amount he’s comfortable with, at any time!
EZPay gives members the ability to manage their electric service in a way that best fits their budget and lifestyle! The program is a great option for members who:
- would rather make smaller, more manageable payments instead of one monthly payment by a pre-determined due date.
- want to avoid paying a security deposit to establish electric service.
- would like the peace of mind that they will never again pay a late fee, disconnection fee, or reconnection fee.
- are interested in lowering electricity consumption and saving on utility costs.
We are the first electric utility in the state to provide this revolutionary type of payment option, but electric cooperatives across the country have been offering pay-as-you-go programs for years. These programs have proven over time to be more cost-efficient than traditional billing, because members who monitor their electricity usage on a daily basis instead of receiving a monthly bill tend to make active changes to lower their usage, saving electricity and money in the process.
Claiborne Electric’s EZPay program allows you to make payments when you want, how you want, and in the amount you want! If you think EZPay may be the right option for you, call our office today!
