If you like the idea of paying smaller amounts when it suits your schedule instead of paying one large lump sum on a fixed date each month, then Prepaid may be right for you!
With Prepaid Metering you purchase electricity before you use it. Usage is calculated and billed to your account daily, and you pay as you go. Prepaid also allows you to monitor your usage on a daily basis, which can result in lower electricity costs for you over time. Prepaid accounts are self managed, so you can make the program work to fit your budget.
Don’t pay that large deposit! With traditional accounts, a deposit of hundreds of dollars may be required. If you enroll in prepaid, a deposit of only $50 plus other standard fees gets you started on the program; which provides a significant savings and allows you to establish service with only a minimal initial investment.
Don’t have your service interrupted! Members with past due balances who are subject to disconnection may enroll in Prepaid as an alternative to cutoff. CEMC will collect half of the past due balance and place the rest into an arrangement that allows members to pay off large balances over time.�
Prepaid accounts won’t receive paper bills, but members will be notified when the balance runs low. Payments can be made using any existing options offered by CEMC. If funds run out the meter will be disconnected remotely, but when payment is received your service will be restored in minutes. There are no late charges or reconnection fees for Prepaid accounts.
