Prepaid Electric Service

What is prepaid electric service?

Food. Gasoline. Even cell phone minutes. We pay for those and most other goods and services before we actually use them.

Now, pay-as-you-go electric service, also called prepaid electric service, is growing in popularity.  

Members pay an amount up front, and ECE uses phone, text and e-mail messages to let members know when they’re almost “out” of electricity. 

Why would I want prepaid electric service?

Prepay works best for people who want to take control of their electric account and energy use. Prepaying can offer a good solution for members who move around a lot, own rental properties, are in college or the military, or are facing financial difficulties. For starters, it eliminates the need for deposits, late fees, and disconnect and reconnect fees.
Prepaid plans give you:
- The flexibility to pay what you can afford when you need electricity.
- The clarity of knowing just where your energy dollars are going.
- The benefit of saving energy and money.
- The power to control your energy bill.
If it is easier to make daily or weekly payments instead of a larger monthly payment, prepaid services may be right for you.
