Flexibility is our goal and we provide you with an assortment of billing options

Regular Billing

Residential and commercial customers are billed once a month. Bills are sent out at the beginning of each month and are due on the 21st of the month. Bills come with a return envelope for your convenience or you can view and pay your bill online. There is a 1.5% penalty applied to unpaid balances.

Pay Online

Save time and money by paying your PSREC bill online. It is simple. To make a one-time payment without setting up an account, visit our Pay Now site.

To manager your account online, including viewing your usage history, you simply need to register online, then log-in to your account.

Automatic Bill Payment Plan

Another convenient time and money saver is having your bill automatically deducted from your checking or savings account! No checks, no postage, no late payments, no hassles, no driving to a pay station or the post office. Each payment is listed on your monthly bank statement and your next bill from PSREC.

To get started, visit SmartHub, or give us a call at (800) 555-2207. Each month you will receive a statement by US Mail or E-mail reflecting the amount due prior to the transfer. To pay on-line go to SmartHub, or Pay Now.

Credit Card Payments

Use your credit card to pay your PSREC Bill. You have four options for credit card payment:

Check Payments

Cash Payments

Drop off at our PSREC office located in Portola, Doyle Payless or Margie's Book Nook in Susanville (addresses listed below, must have payment stub, may take up to two business days for payments to be posted). Payments dropped at Margie's Book Nook and Doyle Payless must have exact change, these payment locations will not give change.

Budget Billing

Are you frustrated by utility bills that fluctuate from month to month? Get control, with our tailor-made Budget Billing plan. With Budget Billing, your bill will stay roughly the same every month year-round despite changes in the weather.

Your monthly Budget Billing plan is based on your past energy use and the price we pay for energy. At the end of each year's Budget Billing plan, we balance your account. If you used more energy than you paid for, we'll add the amount to your bill. If you overpaid us, we'll credit your bill.

To participate in our Budget Billing plan, your account must be active for a minimum of one year, and you must have a good credit rating with Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric.

To sign up for Budget Billing please call our office at 800-555-2207
