PAP: (Pre-Authorized Payment)
The Pre-Authorized Payment Plan offers a convenient way to pay your monthly billing. Simply fill out the authorization form at our office, and supply us with a void cheque or Pre-Authorized Debit form from your bank, and we can automatically deduct the payment directly from your bank account each month. Your invoice will be sent to you as usual approximately 20 days before the due date. On the due date the net amount will be deducted from your bank account. The program is available anytime throughout the year. Simply fill out the authorization form at our office and we will start you on the program. With this method of payment you have no more postage costs, no late charges and your bill is paid if you are away or forget. Your participation in the plan may be terminated at any time, however we require five days notice.
Equal Payment Plan: (Budget Billing)
The Equal Payment Plan offers a convenient monthly budget way to pay your monthly billing. This option is a fixed monthly amount based on the previous 12 months consumption at your residence. This amount is divided into 11 equal portions and any anticipated rate increases are then factored in. This fixed amount is deducted from your bank account on the due date for 11 months. The 12th month is the reconciliation month in which your actual Hydro account balance is then debited from your bank account or left as a credit on your hydro account. Your monthly invoice is still sent to you showing the balance of your account. The program ends in the 12th month, then all the accounts are reviewed, and if necessary adjusted. Simply fill out the authorization form at our office (or we can mail it to you) and we will start you on the program when applicable. Your participation in the plan may be terminated at any time, however we require five days notice. Those choosing an Equal Payment Plan may also want to consider Preauthorized Payment.
