Cowlitz PUD’s newest product offers you total control over your electric bill, by pre-paying it. Just pay as you go. Avoid late fees, deposits and collection charges. Track your electric account. • Pay what you can, when you can. • Track your daily usage. • Use your current deposit to purchase electricity. • Avoid late fees and collection fees. • Service continues as long as you have money in your account What is MyPowerPay? MyPowerPay is the pay-as-you-go alternative to buying electricity. It’s often called “Pre-Pay.” Essentially you can buy electricity the same way you buy gasoline. It offers you the flexibility to pay when you want, how you want, and in the amount you want – before you use it. Instead of receiving your traditional bill each month, you have an opportunity to look at your electric usage every day. MyPowerPay customers who keep their plan paid never have to pay a deposit or incur late fees or collection fees. Is MyPowerPay the Right Choice for Me? Some customers would prefer not to make one large payment each month. If you’re one of these customers, MyPowerPay might be just the option you have been looking for. Statistics indicate those who use prepaid electric programs tend to reduce their electric consumption because they are more aware of how they are using their electricity. In fact, MyPowerPay would be a great option for anyone wanting to monitor his or her electric consumption.
