In traditional billing systems, most of us have little knowledge how many dollars in energy we have consumed until we receive our bill the following month. At this point, our ability to control and make decisions that could lower our bill are no longer available. Pay Your Way works differently. This program allows you to choose how much and how often you want to pay before you use the electricity.
Think of Pay Your Way the same as you do putting gas in your car - you pay for it before you use it. You can purchase small amounts every few days or “fill up” the tank and not worry about it for several weeks. When your supply is low, you simply purchase more.
Pay Your Way works best for members who want to take control of their energy usage. By monitoring your consumption on a regular basis, you will begin to notice patterns in your day-to-day use. Any variation from this pattern, such as a vacation or changes in weather, will become evident as you monitor your account. As you begin to learn more about your household energy use and can tie it directly back to costs, it’s easier to find ways to improve conservation and energy efficiency efforts.
Additional benefits of the program include:
- No security deposits
- No late fees
- No credit checks
- No monthly electric bills, just purchase your power to fit your budget
