Using PrePay lets you pay when you want, in the amounts you want. Instead of receiving a traditional paper bill that is generated once each month, usage is calculated daily. PrePay customers never pay a late charge and are not charged costly disconnect and reconnect fees if the account runs out of credit. You will be asked to have your account current, including any unbilled usage.
There is not deposit required for PrePay Members.
New Carroll EMC Members pay a standard $15 membership fee, $20 service charge and $30 PrePay credit balance. Your total amount due is $65 when applying for PrePay service as a new Member.
*Please note, service will not be connected until the account reflects a $30.00 credit
When you set up your PrePay account, you will select the balance at which you will begin to receive a low-balance notice. Notices can be received via email, automated calling service or text message.
Log on to Carroll EMC's Member Portal or download the free Carroll EMC mobile app. On the Member Portal, click the tab labeled "My Usage" to check your billing, payment or usage history. If you haven't used the Member Portal before, click "New User" to set up your User ID and password. You can check your account information from a desktop computer or a mobile device.
You can purchase more power 24/7, even on weekends and holidays, at a PaySite kiosk. Payments can also be made on Carroll EMC's mobile app and website, by responding "PAY" and the amount you want to add to the text alerts, by telephone or at any Carroll EMC office location.
If you do not purchase more power, the meter will stop and the power will turn off. However, once a payment is made within five days of the power going off and you have at least a $10 credit, your power will reconnect.
