Flint Energies Customers Can Choose How to Pay Bill

Flint Energies Customers Can Choose How to Pay Bill

 

REYNOLDS/WARNER ROBINS/PERRY/UPATOI - Flint Energies now offers a non-traditional prepaid electric service called “Pay Your Way.” According to Sr. VP Jimmy Autry, the rate is the same, but members are no longer subject to due dates, late fees, or disconnect fees.

“We have been billing electricity in the same way for 75 years,” said Autry. “Usage has been measured with a meter and we rendered a bill after the fact.” This after-the-fact billing could provide surprising bills that did not fit into the member’s budget, he said.

Pay Your Way is a great service for members who are paid once or twice a month and their due dates do not match their paychecks. Many members who are paid each week on Fridays find it easier to pay smaller amounts each week instead of being hit with larger monthly bills, said Autry. “But members can choose either way to pay their own bills.”
