If you are experiencing a hardship that is preventing you from making your payment in full or you would like information on payment or billing options, please contact a Member Services Representative via email or phone at 303-637-1300. Below are a few billing options for members who need more flexible payment arrangements. 

Budget Billing

Budget Billing is a 12-month plan consisting of 11 equal payments and a 12th, or final settlement payment, which is adjusted up or down depending on your actual usage. You are only billed for the electricity you use. Your Budget Billing monthly payment is estimated based on your past electric usage, so you must have at least six months of usage history with United Power before you are eligible for this program.

Pay As You Go

Pay for electricity before you use it, just like a prepaid cellphone plan. You will receive alerts when your account is running low, and then you can decide how much to refill, whether a few days or weeks at a time. With Pay As You Go, you no longer pay late fees or reconnect fees, and there are no deposit requirements. Current United Power Members may be able to use a previously paid deposit as a credit upon enrollment in the program.

Temporary Payment Arrangement

United Power understands that circumstances sometimes prevent you from paying your bill in full. In the event you cannot make your payment, we’ll work with you to arrange a temporary payment schedule. Payment arrangements are made on an individual basis.

Additional Resources

If you are having trouble paying your utility bill, LEAP may be able to help.
