Auto Bank Draft

Piedmont Electric members can have their monthly bill paid automatically by bank, debit or credit card draft. To review your statement and monthly electric use, you can receive a bill statement in the mail or you can enroll in Paperless Billing and view your statement online at SmartHub.

  • Once you have logged into SmartHub, select the Billing and Payments tab.
  • From there, you can choose the Auto Pay Program and set up or modify your payment information.
  • Draft dates are determined by each member’s billing cycle: cycles 32-40 on the 6th; cycles 2-10 on the 13th; cycles 12-20 on the 22nd; and cycles 22-30 on the 28th.
For more information or help with this process, just give us a call at 800.222.3107.


Piedmont Electric members now have the option of pre-pay power. This plan allows participants to determine how much and how often they pay, provided their account maintains a positive balance. No deposit is required and there are no late fees!

If it would be easier to make weekly or bi-weekly payments rather than one large payment each month, PrePay may be right for you. For additional details on this program, please contact us online or call Piedmont Electric at 800.222.3107.


Budget Billing

Budget Billing evens out the amount members pay so they can avoid paying higher bills during the weather extremes of summer and winter. With budget billing, payments are spread out over the months when milder weather isn’t impacted by heating or cooling. Many consumers find this helps them to budget their energy dollars more efficiently.

Your Budget Billing amount will be based on your previous 12 months electric use. You will pay a set amount for 11 months. In the twelfth month, a “settle-up” payment will be due. A new Budget Billing amount will then be calculated and the process begins again.

To find out more about budget billing, please call us at 800.222.3107.
