Prepay Electric Q&A

Posted on Apr 25 2019 in Bartholomew County REMC

Would it be easier for you to make weekly or bi-weekly payments rather than one large payment each month? If so, BCREMC’s Prepay Electric option may be for you.

What is prepaid metering? Prepaid metering offers the opportunity to pay when you want, in the amount you want. Instead of receiving a traditional paper bill generated once each month, use is calculated daily. Prepay customers never pay a late fee.

What are the benefits? Our customers who are unable or unwilling to pay the required service deposit to establish or maintain electric service enjoy immediate benefits with the Prepay program.

Is there a deposit for Prepay Electric service? Prepay customers are eligible to have their deposit waived or refunded and applied toward their current energy costs. This puts their deposit money working for them NOW instead of being held in their account to secure future service.

How do I know when my balance is low? Prepay Electric customers choose how they are notified when their balance is running low.  Notifications can be received via email or text message. Each customer chooses the balance at which he/she begins to receive notifications.

How do I make payments? Payments can be made in person, by telephone, or online. You can also view your use, balance information a¡nd notification settings.

How do I sign up? Call our office at 812-372-2546 for details. You will be asked to have your account current, including any unbilled use. For many customers, the deposit is enough to cover these charges.
