Members who sign up for Bank Withdrawal AutoPay should provide a voided copy of a check or savings withdrawal form. Credit Card AutoPay requires MasterCard or VISA. Every month afterward, the Cooperative will charge your credit card or debit your bank account in the first week of the month. This gives you time to review your bill and contact the Cooperative with any questions.

After AutoPay is established for your account(s), a note will begin to appear on your monthly bill(s) near the Total Due Amount. The note, which will be in green, will say "DO NOT PAY," and it will describe the automatic payment. (This green note may not appear until the second month of AutoPayment if the enrollment form arrives after EMEC has closed programming for the month.)

When you are enrolled in AutoPay, your bill will include a message "Do not pay" as shown.

Bank Withdrawal AutoPay is available to all EMEC customers. Credit card AutoPay is available for all residential and seasonal customers, as well as nonresidential customers with monthly bills that average less than $500 per month.

If an automatic payment transaction is declined, EMEC will bill the customer for related charges billed to Eastern Maine Electric Cooperative by its bank or financial partners.
