PrePay allows you to purchase energy and monitor your electric usage in a self-managed program. Our PrePay program is a billing option for residential members designed to optimize payment flexibility and avoid having to pay large deposits. Members can visit one of our offices to sign up for PrePay.
An initial $50 payment toward your credit balance and a $20 activation fee is required, in addition to our membership fee. Once your account is set up, you need to register with the FREE SmartHub app to receive notices. Our PrePay accounts are calculated daily based on the energy consumed in the previous 24 hours. When your account credit balance gets low, we will notify you by email or text to remind you to replenish your account to avoid interruption in service. Payments can be made in our office, by mail, through the SmartHub app, or with our new Pay by Phone option at 844-423-2729.
The Budget Billing Plan provides members the option to pay an average bill throughout the year. A member must have been served by GCEA at the member's current residence for a period of twelve (12) months. A year's average is calculated for monthly installments and helps spread the typcially higher bills of the colder months throughout the 12 month period. Each June is the reconciliation month for which credit or additional balance due is accessed.
GCEA has payment drop boxes at the following locations:
- The Crested Butte Bank, 116 6th St in Crested Butte, located in the entrance lobby
- GCEA Headquarters building, 37250 W. Highway 50 in Gunnison, located in the front parking lot
- Gunnison City Market - Customer Service Desk
We do request that all payments be made by check and placed in an envelope with your name and address. If you are making payment to prevent a disconnect, you should not use the drop box, instead personally deliver those payments to the office or make immediate payments online.
