Billing and Payment

Our service territory for electric and water services is divided into 82 different zones for meter reading. Everyday, the meter readers gather the data from several different zones, and it is uploaded to our billing system. Bills are mailed to customers within approximately 3 days. Payment is due upon receipt, and becomes delinquent 21 days after the billing date.  

We are open for payments 24/7. You can pay your utility bill online or on the phone anytime at no charge.  Look for the Pay Your Bill  link near the top of this website or call 386-424-3199 and have your account number ready. Payments are processed immediately. All of our payment options are shown below.

To protect yourself and your utility service from disconnection, please use caution when making your payment through a third-party payment service. Most importantly, fully understand their offered services and fees, and always keep a receipt.

  • The courtesy notice provides for nine days after the due date to pay for the delinquent bill in full or make payment arrangements. If no arrangements have been made by the date stated on the notice, the account will be subject to disconnection of services. 

Disconnection for Non-Payment

  • Customer Service personnel will assist customers, within Commission set policies, experiencing unforeseen and emergency situations, to prevent disconnection of services. For assistance, please contact Customer Service in advance of the due date on your bill or notice. Should your services be disconnected for non-payment, the following reconnection procedures will apply:
  • Payment of total amount for which account was disconnected, plus any past due charges due on account. The cut-out fee is $35.
  • Payment of reconnection charge of $50 (normal working hours) or $150 (after hours). This fee is payable on your next utility bill.
  • Update of deposit to 2x your average monthly bill.
  • Updated lease and documentation.

  • Customers must request an extension. The UC cannot put an extension on the account until after the due date. If you need an extension, please call Customer Service the day after the bill is due. 
  • Extensions cannot be combined and are not retractable once an exeension is requested. There are no extensions on deposits or returned checks.
  • If eligible for an "extension in the field" at the time of cut-out for non-payment, a signature and verification of account information will be required before the extension can be granted. The $35 trip fee is assessed.

Changes in ownership/occupancy of a residence served by the UC must be reported immediately. Changes in ownership include ALL changes of names on the account, regardless of relationship (except in the case of joint ownership with rights of survivorship from one co-owner to the survivor), each change requiring a cut-out and cut-in service.
