Boone Electric has a new billing option available to members, Prepaid Billing. It puts the control of billing in your hands. There is no monthly bill and you pay as you go.
Prepaid Billing is like driving your car. You fill your car up with gas and go as far as it will take you. The way you drive affects how much gas you use. The gas is your electricity and the way you drive is how you use it. You are billed for your electricity day by day.
You can set up notifications by text, email or through the SmartHub app. Boone Electric will send notifications when your credit balance is getting low. The SmartHub app is a convenient and easy way to keep track of your account. You can view your electric use daily or by month. Payments can be made directly on the SmartHub app, at the office, by phone or our kiosk. View the FAQs below to learn more. Don’t see your question? Call us at 573-449-4181 so we can help.
First, your home will need an advanced meter that enables us to be able to produce daily reads of your electric use. You will need to sign a Prepaid Billing agreement and make an initial payment on your account. Net metering, commercial and dual fuel accounts are unable to participate. Boone County Regional Sewer accounts will continue to be billed separately on a monthly basis.
Prepaid Billing allows you to understand the real cost of the electricity you use and your bill with daily readings. There is no deposit to start service, no monthly bill, no contract and notifications are all paperless.
Please contact our member service representatives at 573-449-4181.
You won’t receive a traditional bill. Prepaid accounts are paperless and you will only receive notifications of your account funds when it is low. Each day’s electric usage is deducted from your credit balance. It is the member’s responsibility to regularly monitor the balance on the account. We highly recommend the SmartHub app to keep track of your electric use.
Daily readings are billed at 3 p.m. and disconnected at 10 a.m. the next morning. Once an account reaches $0, your power will be disconnected. Extensions are not allowed. Disconnects occur regardless of weekends, holidays or outside temperature. To reconnect, you need to pay the amount owed and have a $25 credit balance. There are no reconnect fees. Our advanced meters allow us to reconnect members in a matter of minutes after sufficient payment.
If it does not come back on within 15 minutes of paying your past due credit balance, and you have a $25 credit balance, please call our office at 573-449-4181 to report.
