Con Edison Pay Bill Info
Ways to pay for your Con Edison bill.
To manage your Con Edison bill pay you may wonder in what way that can be done these days. Con Ed has several bill pay options like the so-called e*bill, direct payment, pay by credit card or debit card, pay-by-internet, online banking, payment express, by mail or going to a walk-in Con Edison payment center.
As, conEdison indicates, paying your bill by e-bill is good for you and for the environment as it is a way the pay online. Utility and other companies argue that there's no paper involved so less trees are then needed for paper production. Imagine the hugh number of trees that can be saved if a lot of people go paperless. And not to forget saving on solid waste and waste water that results with the production of paper.
Mind, on the other hand that energy companies like to talk about those environment benefits in order to have you as an online payer, saving them a lot of work and money, compared to ,mailing you the bill, so to say the old fashion way.
Another payment option is Con Edison;s Direct Payment Plan. It operate in about the same way credit card companies may do by deducting the amount you owe from your bank account. Through this DPP plan the payment will be automatically deducted from your checking or savings account, 10 days after you receive your energy bill. This option might be quite convenient for you as there's nothing you have to do.
Next option is paying online, pay-by-internet program, as Con Edison calls it. By using this program you can have the program create an authorized check for your checking account from the information you provide, and transmits the payment directly from your account to Con Edison.
Ofcourse, you can also pay by credit card or debit card. However, it is not free. The payment agent acting on our behalf charges a service fee (approx. $4.75). And you need to have a major credit card (MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club, or Discover card). You can do the payment online or by calling a toll-free number.
Then there the option called: Payment Express. This is a free service with paying your bill by phone. You have to give your Con Edison account number, bank id. number (see your check), and your checking or savings account number.
There's also the 'online banking' option, which is paying your bills while on the website of your bank.
