Northeast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative understands people today are busier than ever. For this reason, Northeast is pleased to offer several convenient options for paying your bill.
You can prepay for your electric service using the cooperative’s Prepay Program. To participate, contact member services at 800.256.6405 to ensure availability for your account and to be set up with a prepay account.

For our budget-minded members, we offer an average monthly payment plan. It brings the highest bills down and the lowest bills up to nearly the same amount each month. While your bill won’t be exactly the same every month, it will usually be very close.
Your monthly bill is averaged over a 12-month period so the amount you pay each month stays about the same. Members will still be able to look at their bills and tell what they would have had to pay for that billing period. Meters are still read on the same schedule as in the past, and your bill is computed just like always. The bill still arrives in the mail to tell you how many kilowatt-hours were used and the total bill amount. Your averaged bill amount will be shown as the amount due on your bill.
To qualify for this service, you may not have an unpaid balance.
Call one of our Member Service Representatives at 1-800-256-6405 to apply for this program.

Your meter will be read each month, and the bill will arrive approximately one week after the meter is read.
