Enroll in My Account

Once your service starts, enroll in My Account to access your account online, pay your bill, check your energy usage and request alerts.

You’re going to need your new account number. You can find it in the email we sent when you started services.

When will my bill come and what will be on it?

Your first ײƵ bill will arrive approximately 30-45 days after your services start. Bills will be mailed to your home address, or you can sign up for Paperless Billing through My Account to receive statements digitally.
