Automated Clearing House
No need to write a check every month, when you sign up for automatic payment through your bank or credit union! You’ll still receive a statement showing your monthly electric usage and charges, and the amount due is deducted from your checking account. You’ll never have to worry about missing the due date. This is also great if you’ll be away from home for extended periods!

Payment By Phone
Use your phone to check your account balance or make a payment at any time of the day or night. Just dial (217) 438-6197, choose Option 1, and enter your account number.

Budget Billing
Makes your bill paying easier because you’ll have the same levelized payment each month. We average your past months’ usage to determine the budget payment amount, and “balance out” your account every October. The best time to sign up for Budget Billing is in September. Call our office if you’d like more information!

Visa/MasterCard Accepted
Any charges from RECC can be paid conveniently on your credit card, even by phone! Your payments are summarized on your monthly credit card statement, and larger purchases can be spread over a payment period of your choice on your credit card account. You can also sign up for automatic monthly payment of your electric bill on your credit card.

Prepaid Electric Service
A new way to pay for the electricity you need, as you need it! With Prepaid Electric Service from RECC, you won’t get one big bill at the end of the month, and you won’t be surprised by more energy use than you expected during the month. Click here for more information on Prepaid Electric Service.
