There are two ways to pay your utility bill electronically: over the phone and online. A fee is charged for each electronic payment. This fee goes directly to the bank; the utilities do not benefit from the assessment of this fee. For more information about other convenient utility bill payment options that do not have a bank fee, check out our automatic payment option.
The maximum payment amount for each credit card transaction is $350. Your payment will be posted to your account by the end of the next business day.
