Account Payment Options

Keep your Alectra account current during ongoing mail delivery delays

Although Canada Post employees are now back to work, effective November 27, the postal disruption over the past few months has caused a significant backlog, and mail delivery may continue to be delayed throughout the holiday season. As an Alectra Utilities customer, you still are responsible for paying your monthly bill. To avoid any potential late fees, we encourage you to choose an electronic payment method like online banking, tele-banking and pre-authorized payments. Log into My Account to view your account online and to register for ebilling.

For customers who have participated in FIT or microfit programs and are anticipating the delivery of recurring refund cheques, consider signing up for autopay to avoid delivery delays.

Please accept our thanks in advance for your co-operation, patience and assistance.
