You are welcome to mail your payment in, bring your
payment in, or drop it off at one of our drive-thru windows, but we also have
some other options when it comes to paying your electric bill.
Pay With Your Credit Card
You can now pay your electric bill with your credit card. We accept MasterCard
Direct Pay is a service that makes paying your electric bill easy and
worry-free. Each month, the amount of your electric bill is automatically
deducted from your checking or savings account. You'll still get a monthly
statement showing the bill amount, kilowatt-hours used, weather data, and all
the other information you get now.
Levelized billing is a good way to even out the cost of high heating and
cooling bills so no single month will reflect a considerable change in your
Levelized billing is based on the average number of kilowatt-hours you have
used in the past 12 months. This means that the payment amount will be only
slightly different each month.
The key points to remember about levelized billing are:
The amount you pay is based on your most current 12 months of actual
Your payments will be only slightly different each month.
Your account can be set up on levelized billing at any time.
There will never be a settlement month.
Pay At Your Local Bank
We know it's hard to get everywhere you need to go during a lunch hour, after
work, or when you're running behind. We also know that most people visit their
bank on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
Now you can pay your electric bill at that same time, perhaps saving you a trip

Prepay is a pay-as-you-go option that helps members avoid paying deposits, late
fees, and/or reconnect fees. Its an option that gives members control
regarding when and how often they pay for electricity. SKRECC Members just need
an initial minimum purchase balance of $100; new South Kentucky RECC members
must also pay a $25 membership fee. If you are already a member and sign up for
Prepay, you will be given credit for any deposit being held on your account.
To be eligible for a Prepay account, members must have access to either an
e-mail account or text messaging for alerts. Each day, you have the option to
receive an e-mail, a text alert, or both, letting you know how much electricity
you have used and what your remaining balance is on your account. Members must
also have a 200-amp service or less.
Once you get to a remaining balance of $25, you will also begin receiving
The greatest benefit of the Prepay option is its convenience. With Prepay, you
can purchase electricity at any time during the month, 24-hours a day, 7-days a
week, and not just when a bill is due.
Another benefit, since you are prepaying for electricity, is there is no longer
the threat of late fees, nor is there a fee for reconnection. Should you forget
to make a payment and your electric gets turned off, when you make a payment
and have a balance on your account, your electric will automatically be
You can sign up for Prepay at any of the co-ops offices. You will need to
fill out an application to establish your participation in the Prepay program.
Payments for the Prepay option can be made at any office, by telephone, online
at the South Kentucky RECC member portal, or by the SKRECC smartphone app.
Interactive Voice Response is available for members to pay their electric bill

be guided to press 3 to pay your bill by credit card or e-check.
