Billing & Payment Information

We offer several convenient payment options:

PAY AUTOMATICALLY. NO STAMPS REQUIRED.

Save time and money. Residential customers can sign up for our Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT), and your bill will be paid on time, every time, directly from your checking or savings account on the date it is due. No stamps required. You will still receive a copy of your bill before the due date, so you will have time to ask any questions before payment. Best of all, it’s totally free! To enroll in the program, log on to My H2O Online or contact our customer service center.

Utility Bill Collection Rules

In 2014, the General Assembly passed and the Governor signed House Bill 939/Act 155 of 2014, to reauthorize the 10-year-old “Responsible Utility Customer Protection Act,” Chapter 14 of the Public Utility Code for another 10 years. The new law revised some Chapter 14 provisions related to low-income programs, Protection from Abuse Orders and medical certificate filings, and added some new regulations and reporting requirements. Chapter 14 rules apply to cash deposits; reconnection of service; termination of service; payment arrangements; and the filing of termination complaints by consumers for electric, gas and water. Under the law, a customer can only establish one payment arrangement with the PUC. The utility company has the discretion to offer more than one payment arrangement. The Public Utility Commission will work beginning in early 2015 to implement the new law with new and amended regulations, and continue to work with all parties to ensure compliance with the law, as well as protect the health and safety of Pennsylvanians. The Act protects responsible bill-paying customers from rate increases attributable to the uncollectible accounts of customers that can afford to pay their bills, but choose not to pay.
