Pay At Your Co-op Office

Monthly payments can be paid by cash, check, or credit card at the Bath office. A credit card kiosk and drive-thru window are available at the Bath office. Secure drop boxes are located at both offices for after-hours payments.


Northern Electric Cooperative offers a prepaid billing option for members who would like an alternative to the traditional method of billing. Prepaid allows members to pay for their power up front with the funds being withdrawn from their account as they use energy.
