Call 1-866-536-05201-866-536-0520 to make a payment by phone using a credit card, debit card, or EFT transfer.

Central Electric members can pay their bill over the telephone using a bill pay service (EDS). The maximum amount of a payment transaction is $3,000.00. You must have your twelve digit account number found on your bill along with your payment amount.

  • EDS closes the payment batch for previous 24 hours at 7:00 AM Central Standard Time and they send the batch to Central Electric Power Association to post payments. Therefore, payments taken after 7:00 AM will not be posted until the following day.
  • EDS will collect the applicable convenience fee at the time of each payment transaction. You will pay $3.95 for credit/debit card payments and $2.35 for EFT checks. These fees will be collected by EDS at the time of the transaction and apply to both online and phone payments.

Return your check or money order payment with your monthly bill statement. CEPA is not responsible for cash sent through the mail.

Levelized Billing

Levelized billing allows you to avoid the ups and downs of seasonal electricity bills. The amount you pay each month is based on your 12-month average electricity use, keeping your monthly payment about the same from month to month.

  • Residential member account must be in good standing.
  • Account must have a 12-month history.
