In an effort to better serve our customers we are making changes to the lobby of our business office. Construction will begin Monday, October 4th . Customers wanting to make an in-person payment will be directed to use one of our kiosks and customers requiring change for a cash payment must use our drive-thru window. This is only temporary during construction.

We encourage customers making payments to use one of our many other payment options including our online customer portal, our free mobile app, our IVR system (automated telephone system), or sign up for automatic bank draft.

be aware of telephone scams!

It has come to our attention that telephone scammers are falsely identifying themselves as Power Commission staff, telling customers their bills must be paid immediately to avoid disconnection, and requesting customer’s payment information.

While the Power Commission sends out an automated courtesy call to remind customers of past due balances the courtesy call does not demand immediate payment. Customers wanting to pay by phone should initiate the call to the Power Commission.
