How to Read and Pay Your Electric Bill

What Makes Up Your Monthly Bill?

Your electric bill covers the various costs of supplying safe, reliable electricity to your home. So it’s important to understand the information on your bill, such as usage and charges, meter readings, dates and other account details.

Missing a bill in the mail?

Please be aware that, in order to receive your bill by mail, you must:

1. Have an existing mailbox at the billing address listed on your account and have registered that address with your post office
2. Check the mail at the billing address (rather than the service address) listed on your account
3. Notify your post office of your address change if you have moved

If this does not resolve your situation, please call 800-842-7708 to speak with a member service representative.
