KISSIMMEE, Fla., April 22, 2013 – Kissimmee Utility Authority is encouraging customers to observe Earth Day, April 22, by signing up for its new paperless eBill payment option.
Customers who enroll in eBill receive e-mail reminders to let them know when their payment is due. They can log in and make a payment at their convenience, or they can sign up for automatic monthly payments that deduct the amount due from a credit card. Bank drafting, which allows bills to be directly debited to a checking or savings account,
is also available upon request.
The system stores 24 months of bills and usage data, and offers customers the option to print a paper copy for their records.
“Switching to electronic billing makes your life easier,” said Susan Postans, KUA vice president of customer service. “It’s faster and more secure than using paper – and better for the environment.”
Customers can register for eBill at https://ebill.kua.com. All payment information is stored on a secure online site for record keeping purposes.
By switching to electronic billing, payment and statements, the average American household can save six pounds of paper, 23 pounds of wood and prevent producing 29 pounds of greenhouse gasses in one year, according to PayItGreen.
Founded in 1901, KUA (http://kua.com) is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility powering 64,000 customers in Osceola County, Fla.
