Direct Debit Payments
Jersey Electricity offers simple direct debit payments for their customers. So what are the benefits of opting for direct debit payments over more traditional payment methods? Well, firstly you commit to an agreed upon monthly payment amount that divides up your electricity payments equally across a 12 month period.
Direct debit customers do still receive quarterly statements, so that they can double check the charges that have been made. Those who are willing to switch to paperless e-bills with JEC get a £3 discount on their quarterly bills, which is a great option for both your bank balance and the environment.
Direct debit payments also prevent nasty late payment fines from providers, and there's no need to worry about your power being shut off if you forget to pay a bill that comes in the post.
