Pay My Bill
Many options are available for members of Guthrie County REC to make payments...
Online - SmartHub - Pay Now - An easy-to-use tool to access and manage your Guthrie County REC account online. A FREE mobile and web application delivering accurate and timely account information. Payments to accounts made in a secure environment. Up to 24 months of billing and electrical usage history is available by following this link.
By Mail - Mailed payments should arrive at the office by the due date and be made by check or money order. Send the bottom portion of the bill with your payment to ensure proper credit on your account utilizing the return envelope provided. If a question arises as to the validity of a personal check, cash or a money order may be required. Second party checks will not be accepted. If a check is not honored because of "insufficient funds" or for any other reason, a service charge will be assessed and the account status will be the same as if no payment had been made. If a payment is made by personal check in order to avoid service termination, and the check is not honored, service may be disconnected after a 24-hour notification.
Automatic - Enrollment in this plan allows our members to pay their bills by automatic electronic funds transfer from a bank, savings and loan, or credit union checking or savings account. In addition, you can sign up to have your bill automatically applied to your credit card each month. To sign up for this free service, complete an automatic authorization form and submit along with a voided check to the cooperative office.
Budget Billing - It's convenient! It's accurate! The program works by establishing an individual payment amount based on the average of your previous year's electrical consumption. The budget bill amount will remain fixed for one year and will be recalculated in August with adjustments made accordingly. To qualify, you must have lived at the same location for at least 12 months and have an account in good standing. Call the office at 1-641-747-2206 or 1-888-747-2206 to find out more information.
In person/by phone - Bring your payment (cash, check, MasterCard or Visa) along with the payment stub to the Guthrie County REC office in Guthrie Center. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.; or give us a call and make your payment using a credit card or bank account at 1-641-747-2206 or 1-888-747-2206. We also have a night deposit box that may be used at any time.
