Pay As You Go
This prepay program allows you to choose how much or how often you want to pay before you use the electricity.
Traditionally, people receive a utility bill once a month for all of the electricity they used in the previous 30 days. With Pay-As-You-Go, you to choose how much and how often you want to pay before you use the electricity.
Because you pay for the electricity in advance, the Pay-As-You-Go program does not require members to place a deposit and there are no late fees. The program also saves money. In similar programs across the country, Pay-As-You-Go participants typically see a 10 to 12 percent reduction in their electric bill.
New members looking to participate in this prepay program must complete both the Pay-As-You-Go Agreement and Membership Application.

Would it be easier for you to make smaller daily, weekly or biweekly payments rather than one large payment each month? The prepay option works best for people who want to take control of their electric accounts and energy usage. By monitoring your consumption on a regular basis, you will begin to notice patterns in your day-to-day usage. Any variation from this pattern, such as a house guest (increase) or a vacation (decrease), will become evident as you monitor your account. Monitoring and controlling daily usage can help keep electrical costs down.
With prepay billing, you pay for electricity how and when you choose. Purchasing electricity before you use it allows you to control your budget and pay how much you want, when you want. Also, there are no security deposits or late fees. Your usage and balance are calculated daily.
You purchase electricity before you use it. Payments can be made anytime online, over the phone or in person at a WRVEC office. You will receive an alert letting you know it’s time to recharge when your account is low. Alerts can be set up for phone and/or email.
If funds in your account run out, your electrical service will be automatically disconnected. You will be notified by phone or email that service is subject to be disconnected. You can purchase more power online or by phone any time of day, seven days a week. Your power will then be restored and you won’t be charged a reconnection fee.
To start a prepay account, you make an advance payment towards future kilowatt use and a nonrefundable prepay connect fee. When you’re running low on funds, you can deposit at least the minimum payment or more.
It’s up to you. Buy energy to last for a few days or several months.
WRVEC residential members or where technological capabilities exist can switch to a prepay account. Your existing deposit will be applied to your current account balance, with any remaining amount being applied as a credit to your prepay account.
