Pepco's Electronic Bill Payment Options Provide Alternatives to Mailing Payments

For Immediate Release
October 26, 2001

Recent mail delivery disruptions in the area have heightened interest in Pepco`s alternatives for making bill payments.

Pepco offers several convenient bill payment options, including its Pre-Authorized Transfer and Online Bill Payment programs.

The Pre-Authorized Transfer program is an automatic bill payment service that deducts monthly bill payments from an enrolled customer`s bank or credit union account. All Pepco customers with accounts in good standing are eligible for the program. If necessary, a transfer can be suspended by contacting Pepco at least five business days before the due date, and then payment can be made by cash or check. An enrollment form can be obtained at Pepco`s Web site, or by calling (202) 833-7500.

A separate Online Bill Payment service offers even more flexibility, allowing customers to both view and pay their electric bills online. This option gives the customer complete control over when to make a payment. Once made, a payment cannot be cancelled. New users can register for the service by visiting Pepco`s home page and clicking on "Pay Your Bill."

Pepco uses industry-standard software to ensure that electronic payments are secure.

As always, customers may make in-person payments at several Pepco locations:

  • Edison Place, 701 Ninth St., N.W., Washington, D.C.
  • Forestville Business Office, 8300 Old Marlboro Pike, Forestville, Md.
  • Martin Luther King Business Office, 2806 Martin Luther King Jr., Ave., S.E., Washington, D.C. (checks or money orders only)
  • Rockville Business Office, 200 West Gude Drive, Rockville, Md. (checks or money orders only)

In addition, Pepco customers can pay their electric bills at any branch of SunTrust and Allfirst banks.

For more information about Pepco`s bill payment options, call (202) 833-7500, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., or visit Pepco`s Web site
