Pre-Authorized Payment

Pre-Authorized payments are an easy and convenient way to pay your Espanola Regional Hydro bill each month.

  • NO cheque to write, get lost or stolen.
  • NO trip required to pay your bill.
  • SAVE time, trouble and postage.
  • ELIMINATE late payment charges.

Your payment is automatically withdrawn from your bank account on or about the due date each month. With the pre-authorized payment, your hydro bill is sent to you in advance of the date your payment is withdrawn from your bank account. This way, you’ll know ahead of time the exact amount that will be deducted. To participate in the Pre-Authorized Payment Plan, please contact our Customer Service department at customerservice@erhydro.com or 705-869-2771.

 

Equal Monthly Payment Plan

Residential and small Commercial/Industrial customers of Espanola Regional Hydro are eligible to participate in the Monthly Equal Payment Plan. The amount will be based on your average billing for the last twelve-month period, so for that reason, the Equal Payment Plan is ideally suited for customers with at least twelve months of history with Espanola Regional Hydro. If twelve months of billing history is not available, the amount will be determined by one of our Customer Accounts Specialists. Your account will be reviewed at least twice per year to ensure that your monthly equal payment amount remains reasonable. You will be advised on your regular bill if the amount has been re-assessed. June is the reconciliation month when your bill will reflect the monthly budget amount, plus or minus any adjustments for overpayment or underpayment. To participate in the Equal Monthly Payment Plan, please contact our Customer Service department at customerservice@erhydro.com or 705-869-2771.

 

Telephone or Online Banking

Pay from the comfort of your home, using the internet or telephone banking services of your financial institution. Both are easy to set up, just ask your bank or financial institution for details. You will need your Espanola Regional Hydro account number to ensure your payments are received and posted to your account on time. If your bank requires 13 digits, add two zero's before your new account number. Espanola Regional Hydro usually receives the payment advice within two business days to apply to your account.
