Manage My Bill
Tools for Managing My Account
Budget billing averages your monthly billing statements based on a 12-month average that is re-adjusted in January and July of each year. You pay the average bill, are able to budget for your electric bill each month, and avoid sharp increases due to the seasonal fluctuation of electricity usage.
Recurring payments can be set up two ways: do it yourself online by clicking on “Pay Bill“, or call* any Singing River Electric office and set up an Electronic Funds Transfer payment option which automatically pays your bill from the banking account you choose within seven days after receiving your billing statement. (*Members who call in will need to mail in a signed form and voided check to complete recurring payment service setup.)
Add money into your account daily, weekly, or as your budget allows. You get to decide.
