One method of payment does not fit every member’s needs. YVEC offers several payment options for your convenience. Additionally, a 24-hour payment drop box is located in the drive through at our office building in Huntley.
Standard Monthly Billing
You will receive a monthly invoice for your electrical usage. The cooperative’s system is divided into two billing cycles. The east end (east of Huntley) of the system’s cycle is around the 15th of the month to the 15th of the following month and bills are typically mailed on around the first day of the month. The west end’s cycle is around the 1st of the month to the 1st of the next month and the bills for these accounts are typically mailed on or around the 15th of the month. Bills are due and payable upon receipt.
