  • You will need your new account number and your CID that is printed on your bill under the transaction detail area to register to the portal
  • Once logged-in to the new customer portal you can make a payment with:
    • Checking Account by selecting “Pay with Bank Account” in the “Pay Now” screen; there will be no fee for this transaction *
    • Credit Card by selecting “Pay with Credit Card” in the “Pay Now” screen; you will be charged a fee for each transaction
  • To continue receiving bills electronically, you must register and sign up for electronic bills at the new portal even if you previously were signed up for electronic bills
