Wake Forest, NC— Did you know that many of your fellow residential member-owners have switched to PowerUp, a new and convenient pay-as-you-go billing option for residential members? PowerUp is designed to optimize payment flexibility and allow more control over personal finances.

PowerUp allows you to pay for only the amount of electricity you want, and when you want to pay for it. You can prepay anticipated charges a full month in advance, or pay just enough to get you through the next week. It’s your choice.

PowerUp allows you to put dollars in your account, and as you use electricity, the balance in your account will decrease. Since you provide us with an email and/or valid phone number, the PowerUp program will automatically notify you when your account gets low on funds. Then, you simply reload your account and see how far you can stretch your dollars before making your next payment. By pre-purchasing your electricity, you can budget and monitor your electricity usage more closely.

One of the more exciting features of PowerUp allows members to apply any existing deposit from their traditional post-pay account towards outstanding balances at conversion. Remaining credit is then applied to the PowerUp account for the purchase of future electricity.

Other benefits of PowerUp include no late fees, trip charges, or reconnect fees. And, there is no cost to switch to the PowerUp rate. You will have easy access to view electric usage, payment history and credit balances online, which allows for more control over your personal finances and planning.

For more information on our PowerUp program, please contact us at (919) 863-6300 or 1-800-474-6300. You can also visit us at www.wemc.com/powerup.aspx to review the terms and conditions of the program. We look forward to hearing from you.

Members must have an updated Advanced Metering Infrastructure meter (AMI) in order to utilize this flexible energy prepayment option. If you have questions about when your meter will be replaced, please feel free to call us at (919) 863-6300 or 1-800-474-6300.
