AVERAGE BILLING PROGRAM
Now there’s a way to know ahead of time what your monthly bill will be. The Average Monthly Billing Plan makes paying electric bills easier by removing seasonal peaks and valleys. Your monthly payments are leveled out so you know what to expect and how to plan your budget. The plan is designed to average your monthly payments to avoid those unusually high bills that occur during high usage months.
If you’re a residential customer with at least 12 months of service and no late payments for 12 consecutive months, you are eligible to take advantage of this plan. Your total annual cost for electricity remains the same, but you have the convenience of a more consistent bill each month. To transfer your account to this billing option, simply contact us at 1-800-256-7973.
SET UP AUTOMATIC DRAFT
Put your account on autopilot by setting up automatic draft on your account(s). Call 1-800-256-7973 or use your SmartHub account to get started. Automatic Draft Authorization Forms can be found here.
BILLING FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
Your 10-digit Account Number is located in the upper left hand corner of the bill detail. This unique number identifies the specific account set up under your membership for the meter being tracked by this bill. Many of our members have more than one meter (house, barn, oil well, water well, etc.) and therefore have more than one account number. It is important that you provide the account number in question any time you need information on your account or report a concern, allowing us to more accurately address the specific meter.
In order to better serve our members, Southwest Rural Electric collects and processes metering data in one billing cycle.
Bills Mailed: 8th of each month

Your electricity usage is metered in kilowatt hours (kWh). A kWh is equivalent to 1,000 watts (1.34 hp) of power used for a period of one hour. For example, if you were to use a 1.5 horsepower (about 1,000 watts) motor for an hour or a 100 watt appliance for 10 hours, each would consume roughly 1 kWh of electricity.
You can now track your energy usage in the SmartHub app or web portal!
