Payment and Billing
Choose Your Way To Pay
Boone REMC makes it easy to pay your electric bill by offering more options for your convenience. Members can pay online, by MoneyGram, or find more information on budget billing options. As a local electric cooperative, our goal is to ensure the process is as easy as possible for our members.
From here, you can also find answers to your payment and billing questions, and a detailed breakdown of how your billing statement works. Read on to learn more, or contact us directly.
Billing, Delinquent Accounts, and Meter Reading
Boone REMC sends bills for electric service on a monthly basis, which are due and payable upon receipt. A bill is considered delinquent after the stated due date, and a past due account may become subject to disconnection. Bills are not considered paid until payment has reached Boone REMC, either online, by mail, or at our office.
Paying by Mail
Boone REMC is not responsible for the delivery schedules of the U.S. Postal Service. If paying a bill by mail, please include the return portion of your billing statement. Please note: this goes to a Martinsville, IN address. If you do not have the return portion of your bill, please mail payment to:
P.O. Box 563
Lebanon, IN 46052
Paying in Person
We also accept payment at our office at 1207 Indianapolis Avenue in Lebanon. Boone REMC accepts cash, checks, and money orders, as well as Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A deposit box is available in our drive-through lane for after-hours payment.
Budget Billing Plans
If you’re struggling to make a payment, Boone REMC offers a variable budget billing plan. If you need assistance with your payments, you can also contact our billing department about payment extensions, or contact a local, state, or federal assistance program.
If you do need payment arrangements, please be sure to contact the office before your service is subject to disconnection.
Late Payment, Disconnect, and Reconnect Fees
Delinquent accounts are charged a penalty amounting to 10 percent of the first $3, and three percent of the balance over $3. When the first of the month falls on a holiday or weekend, the next working day will be considered the due date.
If a Boone REMC representative must be sent to the customer’s home to collect a payment or disconnect service, a $45 fee will be added to the delinquent bill. If a service that was disconnected for non-payment is reconnected during regular business hours, a $45 reconnect fee is also added to the bill.
The service charge for reconnections after regular business hours is $255. The total charge for after-hours reconnection is $345. The member is responsible for all expenses incurred by Boone REMC related to delinquent accounts.
All meters are read on a monthly basis. Boone REMC utilizes automated metering infrastructure (AMI). Our AMI meters automatically collect your monthly meter readings.
