Payment and Billing Options
Meters are read automatically in the office. Statements are processed and mailed on the first working day of each month. Payments are due in the office by 10:00 a.m. on the 20th of the month. Any amount not paid by the due date is subject to a $10 late fee. Late notices will be sent out after the due date to all members with a past due amount.
Although most of our members pay their bill on time, we do occasionally have to disconnect accounts that are past due. If you are experiencing difficulty paying your electric bill, please call our office to make payment arrangements to clear up any past due amount. Disconnection is costly to the member and the cooperative. A $75 plus tax reconnect fee will be collected before the account is reenergized.
If you have any questions regarding your billing statement please feel free to call our billing department at (605) 463-2507.

Normally, you receive a utility bill at the end of the month for all of the electricity you used in the past 30 days. PrePay works the opposite. You pay for the electricity before you use it. You can pay ahead as much or as little as you want. Your meter is read each night at midnight and a bill is calculated for yesterday’s usage. If the credit balance drops below a threshold, you are notified that your balance is getting low. If you use up all your credit, then power is shut off until the account has at least a $25 credit balance.
Pay By Mail
Mail payment and the bottom portion of your bill. Please allow time for the payment to be received by the due date. Mail check or money order to: Bon Homme Yankton Electric, PO Box 158, Tabor, SD 57063.
