Payment Options

Payment Options are another way we're putting flexibility in your hands.  Online, by phone, through automatic bank draft - you name it, it's easy.  You decide how you pay each month.


Our Online Member Portal offers online bill payment in a safe and secure environment.  Payments are credited to your Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative account immediately after processing the payment on the website.  Credit cards, debit cards, and electronic check payments are accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


View and pay your bill, sign up for alerts, report power outages and more with our mobile app.  The mobile app is available to download at the App Store for Apple devices and Google Play for Android devices.


Payments can be automatically drafted from your checking or savings account for the amount of your monthly electric bill.  Payments are drafted on the due date and you will receive your statement as usual each month.    



We can also draft your credit card or debit card account, we accept Master Card, Visa, American Express and Discover.


Contact us by stopping by one of our office locations or call our Member Services Center at 800-240-3400 or download the Automated Payment Authorization Form.


Mail checks or money orders payable to Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative and mail using the return envelope included with your monthly bill statement. You can also mail it directly to PO Box 277 Pickens SC 29671. 


Payments can be made in person at either of our office locations, Monday through Friday 8:00a - 5:00p.  After-hour payments can be made at either office location using the night depository or the KIOSK. 


Payments can be made over the phone through our Express Payment Line at 864-898-2008 or at 800-240-3400.  A Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative account number and credit/debit card or checking information is needed.


Pay your power bill without leaving your car at one of our two KIOSKS.  Conveniently placed at each office location, it's safe, simple and convenient.  Pay with cash, credit card or check, day or night.  Your payment stub contains a scan bar that makes it even easier.

budget billing

Budget Billing helps manage your account by smoothing out the highs and lows associated with your seasonal usage of electricity during the year. The average KWH usage for your household during the previous 12 months will be used to calculate a standard budget bill amount.

Qualified members will pay that amount each month, taking some of the guesswork out of your personal finances. The budget bill amount will be recalculated yearly.

levelized billing

Under Levelized Billing, each monthly bill is the rolling average of your electric usage for the most recent 12 months.  For instance, this month's bill would be the average electric usage of the previous 11 months, plus this month. 

Your electric bill will change only slightly from month to month, and the 12-month rolling average guards against drastic changes in your bill, even during the coldest and hottest months.

The only time you have to reconcile your account is when you leave the Blue Ridge Electric system or when you decide you no longer want to participate in the levelized billing plan.
