Payment Options

Method of Payment:

Central Electric currently accepts cash, checks and money orders as method of payment. Please make sure that your payment reaches our office by the due date of each month to avoid a minimum $5.00 penalty.


Online Bill Payment:

Would you like to pay your electric bill at any time of day, night, or on the weekend? Are you ready to pay your bill but can’t find the statement or the envelope? Sign up for SmartHub using your email address and your electric account number. You can then view and pay your bill using Visa, Mastercard, Discover or e-check.

Bank Draft or Recurring Credit/Debit Card:

Looking for a hassle free way to pay your bill each month? Sign up to have your payment automatically deducted from your bank account or credit card. To sign up, call 855-730-8707 or log in to SmartHub and have your electric account number and banking information ready. Via phone, you will need to make a payment and then save your account information. Follow the instructions on the line.

Your payment will be debited from your account or credit card each month on the 15th. If the 15th falls on a holiday or weekend, it will be deducted on the next business day. You will still receive a bill each month and it will read "Automatic Payment by Bank Draft" or "Automatic Payment by Credit Card."
