(Cumming, August 26, 2015) – Pre-paying for future services is a trend that is sweeping the consumer landscape… everything from cell phone usage, to legal services, to toll lane charges… It’s not a new or novel concept by any means. But did you know that you can also purchase your Sawnee EMC electricity with a “pre-pay” approach?
Sawnee has offered Pre-Pay service for residential members, upon request, since September of 2014, and the participants have had nothing but good things to say about it. There is no fee to enroll, no late fees or reconnect fees, and no deposits required. Furthermore, if an existing member has a security deposit on file with Sawnee, that deposit can either be used to settle outstanding charges, refunded or applied to an eligible pre-pay account as a credit.
“This is a great program for a residential customer who wants to more actively manage their electricity usage or a new customer who doesn’t want to pay a security deposit” states Blake House, V.P. of Member Services. “We have been testing our processes for over a year, on a expanded limited basis, but we are now ready for broader deployment“.
