Bill Payment Options

Bill Payment Options

Pay my bill online with SmartHub

Co-op members can view and pay their electric bills online with this free and secure service.  SmartHub will notify you when your bill is ready, past due, etc.  You can also view a two year history of payments and readings of your account.  Go to SmartHub to sign up now.  You can also use your smart device by going to the app store and downloading the smart app.

Automatic payments

With this service, a member needs only a checking/savings account or debit/credit card, and we do the rest.  Members receive their bills each month, by paper or electronically, and the payments are automatically withdrawn from the accounts on the 25th of every month.  Complete this form and send it to Franklin REC or go to SmartHub and sign yourself up!

Budget billing

With this service, members know exactly what their electric bills will be each month.  When members sign up for our budget billing, we base their bills on the past 12 months' usage.  Budget billing accounts are reviewed in May and November.  Participants are notified at those times, if adjustments are needed, on their statements.

Credit or debit card payments

Members may sign up for this as a monthly service or contact us whenever they want to pay their bills using a MasterCard, Visa, or Discover cards.  We accept payments weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by phone, at our office or online with SmartHub or the Pay Now option.
