How can I pay my bill?
You have several methods of payment. You may pay your bill at our bill payment stations at our offices, by mail, or even using the SmartHub app. Bills may be paid using cash, check, or money order. Bills can also be paid using a bank draft or an automatically recurring credit card authorization. We understand that from time to time there may be circumstances which cause a temporary problem with your finances. Our Member Service Advisors will be happy to assist you if you are unable to pay your bill on time.
What is an automatic bank draft or credit card authorization?
With your permission, your monthly electric bill will automatically draft from your checking account or be charged to your credit card. It's a convenient way to pay for Members who do not want to write and mail a check every month.
What is a Co-op?
Co-op is short for Cooperative and means that the utility is owned by you, its members. Our rates are set by our members through a board of directors elected from and by the membership. Since we are non-profit, any margin above operating cost is refunded back the members.
What is Touchstone Energy?
Touchstone Energy is a nationwide alliance of electric cooperatives that will be distinguishing themselves as preferred providers in the electric utility marketplace. Touchstone Energy co-ops are dedicated and invested community members committed to providing high quality and responsive utility service. They are pledged to operate with integrity, accountability, innovation and a spirit of community awareness.
What is the Average Payment Plan?
If fluctuating or seasonal high bills cause you problems, our Average Payment Plan may be right for you. You can bring your higher bills down and you lower bills up so that you pay approximately the same amount each month. This is done by averaging your electric bills over the most recent twelve months.
Qualifications: Member must exhibit an excellent payment history to use this program. To find out if you qualify, or for more information, please contact our Member Services department.
Value Incentive Plan V.I.P.
The program objective is to encourage the installation of High Energy Efficient Heat Pump units in new homes and the replacement of old, less efficient units in existing homes. These measures will increase the Cooperative's annual load factor while the member enjoys lower kilowatt hour usage.
For more information, please contact our Member Services department.
