Late Payments

Coastal Electric Cooperative offer many options to make paying your bill convenient.

Our members due date varies based on when we read your meter. We read all meters on a monthly basis, but have divided our service territory into meter reading cycles.

Your bill due date is posted on your bill. Bills are due upon receipt, but members have 20 days to pay the bill. Coastal Electric Cooperative does not send delinquent notices.

Avoid late payments

Members who miss a due date may be charged a late penalty fee, $3.00 or 10% of the bill, whichever is greater.

Other fees:

If we visit you to collect payment or leave a courtesy reminder – $15.00 per trip
If service is disconnected and reconnected during normal business hours – $25.00
If service is disconnected and reconnected after normal business hours – $50.00

Note: Member who has their service disconnected for non-payment may be charged an additional deposit up to 2.5 times their average monthly bill.

Members can pay their bill online at any time day or night, seven days a week. It’s fast, secure and free. Payments made online are credited immediately.

Another convenient option is AutoPay from either your checking account or credit card. Never worry about being late again.

Payment arrangements

If it’s not a matter of time, but you don’t have the money pay your bill, contact us by email or call us by the due date, it may be possible to extend your payment beyond the current due date.
