What is SmartPay?

SmartPay is a new way to pay for electricity.  This optional program allows you to buy power at your convenience, with no late fees or security deposit needed.

How does it work?  When you enroll in SmartPay, you pre-pay for your electricity, but you get to choose how much you buy and when you buy it (minimum starting balance is $25).  With convenient text and/or email notifications you can stay on top of your usage, so you know when you need to add more to your account balance.  If your account gets to zero your electricity is turned off, but adding money to your account automatically turns it back on 24/7, with no reconnect fee.  SmartPay is simple and puts you in control.  No more monthly billing statements with due dates and late fees. No more security deposits.  Enjoy flexibility and freedom with SmartPay.
