Prepay Electrical Service
United Electric’s new Prepay Program is a pay-as-you-go plan that offers co-op members the opportunity to pay for electricity when they want, in the amount they want. It works the same way as you buy fuel for your automobile. Just as you purchase fuel to use when you want, with Prepay, you purchase kWh’s to use when you want.
UEC’s Prepay Program offers additional benefits:
- No Deposit
- No Late Fees
- No Monthly Bills
- Payment flexibility – pay in advance how much and how often as is convenient
- Same kWh rate as other services
How do I make payments?
Prepayments may be made from a mobile device, computer, via phone during regular business hours, or in the United Electric office. The minimum prepayment amount at any one time is $20.
What if my account balance runs low?
When your credit balance drops below $40, each day you will receive a low balance notice via the method you choose (email, text message and/or Smarthub). This will give you time to purchase more power before the meter stops.
If you do not purchase more power, the meter will stop and power will turn off. However, purchasing power is quick & easy, even on weekends and holidays. Within several minutes of payment being made, the meter will turn back on.
The Prepay Program is a different way to pay and manage your electric costs. If you would like more information about this new billing option, give us a call at 679-2222 or stop by the office.
