Bank-A-Watt Pre-Pay Program
Pay for electricity YOUR WAY
with our BANK-A-WATT PRE-PAY program!
With BANK-A-WATT prepay billing, you have the flexibility to pay for electricity how and when you choose, in whatever amount you choose. Daily, weekly or monthly… you select the payment plan that works best for you and the amounts that fit into your budget.
Your electric usage and account balance are calculated daily. You can monitor your account by phone, online at nremc.com or by using a SmartHub app on your mobile device or tablet. You decide how much electricity you want to purchase and pay for it with cash, check, debit or credit card. When your account runs low you will get an alert by phone, text or email (your choice) to let you know it is time to “recharge” your account to the level you desire. You can purchase enough electricity to last a day, a week, a month, or longer.
Signing up for BANK-A-WATT is easy! Simply review the Member Agreement then print off and bring the signed application to our office, scan and email it to us, or mail it. A member services representative will call you when it is received to complete the sign-up process.
A minimum first-time energy purchase of $50 is required. Any payment made into your account thereafter must be at least $5. If your balance reaches $0 your meter will automatically disconnect after 9:00 a.m. the next business day. Once a $25 credit balance is established reconnection will take place within an hour without any late, disconnect or reconnect fees.
If it will be easier on your budget to make daily or weekly payments, or if you are leaving for the season and don’t want to be worry about your bill, then BANK-A-WATT might be the program for you.
