This is a simple, fast and accurate service that enables you to pay your bill with an echeck, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover Card just about anytime, anywhere you have access to the Internet. You can also view the current balance on your electric account and review electric use for the past 12 months. When you make a payment online using our service, a confirmation of your payment is given and the amount owed immediately updates on the View Your Current Balance screen.

Credit Cards
You can pay your electric bill with Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover Card in person, at the office, over the phone, or on-line. Credit card payments are not accepted at the drive-thru window.

Automatic Draft

Our 24-hour a day kiosks are located inside the HandyMart stores in Swansboro (701 West Corbett Avenue which is the intersection of West Corbett Avenue and Old Hammock Beach Road) and near Richlands (5506 Richlands Highway, Jacksonville, which is the intersection of Richlands Highway and Rhodestown Road).

Our other two kiosks are located inside the Realo Drugstores in Surf City (13500 Highway 50, Suite 101, Holly Ridge) and Jacksonville (Wal-Mart Shopping Center at 423 Yopp Road). Payment at these kiosks is available during Realo’s business hours (hours vary from weekdays to weekends).

An important thing to note is that the machines don’t return change so if members make a payment in cash, any overpayment to an account will be applied as a credit to the account.
