Billing and payment options

Your billing and payment options

PEC offers several options to make managing your account as simple as possible.


Pay online or on the go with SmartHub

SmartHub makes it easy to pay your bill. You can pay your entire balance due, make a partial payment or pay a specific amount, for one account or several. You can use a stored payment method or add additional ones to use once or save for future use.

You can make payments from your computer through the online portal or from your smartphone or tablet using the SmartHub mobile app. You can also set up recurring automatic payments from a bank account or credit card so your bill is paid in full each month.

Say goodbye to paper bills by opting for convenient paperless billing. When you combine paperless billing with recurring payments, you can save money on your bill every month with our reduced service availability charge options. Learn more about our eSaver and eBilling options here.

Billing options

Take control of your electric bill with PEC’s Fixed Payment Plan or Average Payment Plan. Both are available to residential, farm/ranch and water well members who are current on their accounts and have at least 12 months of billing history at the same location. You may enroll anytime, and payments under either plan begin with the first bill rendered after enrollment.

  • Fixed Payment Plan
    Under the Fixed Payment Plan, you’ll pay a fixed amount each month based on the average electric use at your location during the 12 months before the plan starts. PEC will also review your account periodically to determine if the plan should be reset to help prevent an excessive annual correction.
  • Average Payment Plan
    On the Average Payment Plan, the payment is calculated from the rolling 12-month use average at your location. Unlike the Fixed Payment Plan, bills will not be the same amount every month.

For more information or to sign up for a payment plan or autopay, call us toll-free at 1-888-554-4732 between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m., Monday through Friday.
