Pay As You Go
WHAT IF PAYING YOUR ELECTRIC BILL WAS LIKE BUYING GAS FOR YOUR VEHICLE?
NOW IT CAN BE!
NO LATE FEES.
NO MONTHLY BILLS.
WHAT IS PAY AS YOU GO BILLING?
With Pay As You Go billing, you pay for electricity how and when you choose. Purchasing electricity before you use it allows you to control your budget and pay how much you want, when you want. There are no security deposits or late fees. Instead of a monthly billing statement, your usage and balance are calculated daily.
HOW CAN I MONITOR MY ACCOUNT?

• See postings of payments in real time.
• Review your usage by month, day and hour in an easy-to-read graph.
WHAT IF MY ACCOUNT RUNS OUT?
If funds in your account run out, your electrical service will be automatically disconnected. You will be notified through SmartHub that your service has been disconnected.
HOW DO I PURCHASE MY POWER?
You can purchase power online or by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your power will be restored within minutes if it’s been disconnected and you won’t be charged a reconnection fee.
