Payment Options


For more information on payment options, please call 800-696-6552 or 641-752-1593.

eBill - Electronic billing is a fast, easy way for you to view and pay your monthly electric bill.  Features of eBill include:  an e-mail notification when your electric bill is available online, when a payment is applied to your account, and should your account become past due.  At this time, you will continue to receive monthly printed statements by mail in addition to the online information.  By clicking on a link to secure e-billing system, Manage My Account, you can view your current bill, as well as historical billing information, payment history and history usage graphs.

By Check - Consumers Energy accepts checks for payment of electric bills.  If a question arises as to the validity of a personal check, Consumers Energy may require cash or a money order.  Second party checks will not be accepted.  If a check is not honored because of "insufficient funds" or for any other reason, a service charge will be assessed and the account status will be the same as if no payment had been made. When a check of a member is dishonored by the bank upon which it was drawn within a twelve-month period, the cooperative shall demand the future payments for service rendered be made by cash, certified check, debit or credit card.

By Credit Card - Consumers Energy offers payment by credit or debit card just by telephoning us at 800-696-6552.  No more check writing, postage, late fees or trips to the mailbox and it's FREE.

Electronic Funds Transfer or Automated Clearing House (ACH) - Enrollment in this plan allows members to pay their bill by automatic electronic fund transfer from any bank, savings and loan, or credit union checking/savings accounts.  In addition, you can sign up to have your bill automatically applied to your credit or debit card each month.
