About Your Bill

Sample Bill with Legend

Bank Drafts

For those not familiar with bank drafts:

  • The member starts by completing a form, attaches a void check (or copy of one) to the form and sends it to the Cooperative’s Billing department.
  • After that, the amount of each month’s electric bill is automatically withdrawn from the member’s bank account.
  • The member will receive their bill at the beginning of each month showing the amount that will be drafted.
  • Drafts for all participants will take place at the same time and will be on or near the 12th of each month.
  • Use the Bank Draft Authorization Form pdf link to print and fill out.

Levelized Billing

With levelized billing you can avoid the winter and summer highs in your bill by averaging your amount due each month. The amount changes each month as your usage fluctuates, but you never have the settle up month you have with budget billing. If you are currently on budget billing and think you would prefer the levelized option you may contact our Billing Department.

Anyone with questions regarding either option or anyone interested in enrolling in either option should also contact our Billing Department at the number below.
