Want a $10 bill credit?

At Central Electric, we know our members like convenience. That's why we are continually looking for ways to help make managing your electric account more convenient.

For a limited time, members who choose to enroll in both the E-bill and Automatic Payment Draft programs will receive a one-time $10 bill credit.

Enroll in both E-bill and Draft, look out for your $10 credit on your billing statement, and then sit back and relax. It's as simple as that!

Automatic Draft:

Members may choose to have monthly electric bills automatically paid from checking or savings accounts. Members can sign-up for bank draft two different ways: (1) provide a signed agreement and voided deposit slip or check bearing your account number, or (2) log-in to the customer portal, select Payments-Setup Draft-Bank Draft or Credit Card Draft, and enter draft information. With automatic bank draft, you still receive your bill statement with the amount to be drafted from your bank account before the draft is made. Draft payments will be processed on the due date each month until the draft is requested to be removed by the member.

Budget Billing:

With budget billing, qualified customers can make monthly-equalized payments that are computed from the average of 12 months power use. Budget billing is reviewed every 12 months with the balance being settled on the 13th month. Failure to pay when due will automatically cancel the agreement.

Contact the cooperative at 919-774-4900 if you are interested in setting your account up on Budget Billing.
