Payment Options

Jackson Purchase Energy offers several billing options for your convenience.

Levelized Billing
Hate surprises? Even if you like surprises, you probably don't want to see one on your next electric bill. Jackson Purchase Energy can help. JPEC now offers levelized billing.

In contrast with budget billing that uses a 12-month average and charges customers the same amount each month, levelized billing constantly adjusts the monthly amount to better reflect actual use. That means there's no catch-up month at the end of the year, as is the case with budget billing. The rolling-average adjustment means you can sign up anytime. New members are eligible with just two months of billing history.

For more information, contact any customer service representative.

Automatic Bank Drafting
You can arrange for your payment to be automatically deducted from your checking account each month. You will still receive a bill for usage; however, instead of sending a payment, your checking account will be debited automatically. The transfer of funds from your bank to Jackson Purchase Energy will be shown on your checking account statement and will serve as your receipt. The payment will not be drafted from your account until the due date. You can request a bank draft authorization agreement by contacting any customer service representative by phone or email.

Automatic Credit Card Drafting
