Tired of your electric bill jumping up and down from month to month?
Temperature fluctuations can cause energy usage to spike in the summer and winter. With Levelized Billing, your monthly electric bill becomes a “rolling average” of your electric usage for the most recent 12 months, so you pay a similar amount each time.
MJM members who have received power for at least one year and have excellent credit are eligible for this program. To sign up, or to learn more information, please contact the billing department by calling (local) 217-707-6156 or by emailing Brenda Qualls (ext. 213) in the billing department at firstname.lastname@example.org
Your cooperative offers a payment option that gives you more control over your bill payments than ever before. With our new prepaid electric service program, participating members can pay whatever they want, whenever they want as long as a credit remains on the account.
How does it work?
With the new program, you can purchase your electricity before you use it. You could purchase small amounts every few days and not worry about it for a week or two. When your supply is low, you simply purchase more.
Your electric usage is calculated daily, and when the credits in your account are running low, we will contact you via text message, email, or phone to let you know it’s time for you to add funds to your account. Payments can be made online and over the phone 365 days a year, 24/7. Payments can also be made through the mail and in person.
What are the benefits?
Pay on your own schedule – By joining the program, you are no longer bound by the 15th of the month payment due date. This is especially convenient for those who don’t receive their paychecks until after the 15th.
Save money and energy – Prepaid service participants gain a better understanding of how the electricity they use day to day affects their wallet. As a result, participants in similar programs across the country have typically seen a 10-12% reduction in their monthly electricity costs!
No extra late fees or disconnect deposit – If a member accidentally lets his or her account reach $0, there are no extra fees. The member is reconnected as soon as he/she pays the outstanding balance, plus $25 for future electricity usage.
How can I sign up?
Contact the MJM office at (local) 217-707-6156 or (toll free) 800-648-4729 for more info or to sign up.
From time to time, anyone could have a problem paying a bill. In these instances, contact the cooperative as soon as possible before the bill is due on the 15th of the month. If your electric service is disconnected, you will incur even greater expense.
You may be able to work out a deferred payment agreement with your cooperative – keeping your service on. There are also low income assistance services such as the LIHEAP program.
LIHEAP is designed to assist eligible low-income households pay for winter energy services. The program will provide a one-time benefit to eligible households to be used for energy bills. The amount of the payment is determined by income, household size, and fuel type. An overdue bill or cut-off notice is not required in order to receive assistance.
Reconnection Assistance may be available if your household is disconnected from an energy source needed for heating and/or a delivered-fuel have refused to deliver and the tank contains 10% or less.
