BECi New PrePay Billing Option
Beauregard Electric Cooperative, Inc., Announces PowerPay Program
DeRidder, La.—Beauregard Electric Cooperative, Inc. (BECi), the member-driven company that has provided the region with reliable energy since 1939, has announced that it now offers an easy and affordable way to pay electric bills.
PowerPay is the new pay-as-you-go plan that offers the opportunity to pay the amount you want when you want. Unlike traditional monthly bills, PowerPay can be used to pay account balances in smaller amounts on a weekly or biweekly basis instead of paying one large amount once a month.
Similar to filling up a car with gasoline, members can deposit the amount of their choice into their PowerPay account—even as low as a few dollars—and when the balance gets close to empty, the members only needs to add more fuel.
“We offer the same great service that we did back in 1939, and we’ve taken Beauregard Electric by leaps and bounds into the future with new technology,” said Kay Fox, vice president of marketing and member services. “Our members are what drive us, and the PowerPay program reflects our mission to meet member needs.”
PowerPay users never pay late charges, disconnect fees, reconnect fees or deposits. After signing up, members can start the PowerPay plan by paying $50 toward their electric bill. Users are also sent low-balance notifications via email or text, and adding funds to the account is quick and easy and can be done anytime via smartphone, in-person, mail or online.
“In addition to the PowerPay payment plan, all of our members can also monitor their energy consumptions on the MyBECi mobile app and their member portal online,” said Fox. “We want to educate our members on how much electricity their household uses. With the app, you can see usage trends down to 15-minute intervals, and the more aware of how you consume energy, the better equipped you are to reduce your bill.”
