PREPAID METERING NOW AVAILABLE
Ozark Border Electric Cooperative is excited to offer a new service to our members. Prepaid metering is now available! Prepaid metering is a service that allows members to pay for their electric usage as they go, as opposed to receiving a monthly bill. With prepaid metering, you pay in advance for your electric, so there is no need for deposits. As your prepayment is used, you receive text notifications of remaining credit balances. Since the system is completely automated there are no connect fees or disconnect fees. Since you pay in advance there are no late fees and no specific due dates – you just have to pay for the electric before it can be used.
Prepaid metering has become a very popular program in many cooperatives across the country, and OBEC is pleased to be able to offer this service. If you have an active account that you would like to discuss switching over to prepaid, please contact our Billing Department for details. If you are considering connecting a new account, any of our suboffice or Member Service Department clerks will be glad to help you with the setup.
