Payment Options

We offer a number of ways to pay your bill: by automatic payment, online, over the phone, by mail or at any Customer Service Center.

To protect your privacy and avoid delays or extra costs, we recommend making your payments directly to GVEC, rather than using third-party bill pay services.

If you have questions about making payments to GVEC, call 800.223.4832 to speak to a representative.

New to SmartHub? Sign up here or learn more about downloading our FREE mobile app. In addition to making payments, you’ll be able to manage your account from SmartHub, too. While you’re there, sign up for eBill to receive your statements by email.

Automatic payment, through SmartHub, ensures your payment is made on time every month, eliminating late payments and fees. Just set it up once in SmartHub, GVEC’s self-service portal—that’s it! When choosing this option, there are two methods available:

  • Bank Draft allows you to specify a savings or checking account to automatically debit the amount of your bill each on your billing due date.
  • Credit or Debit Card Draft allows your account to be automatically debited for the amount of your electric bill each month on your bill due date. Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accept.

Online payment, through SmartHub, allows you to make a one-time credit card, debit card or e-check payment any time, day or night, via SmartHub.
