Pre-Authorized payments are an easy and convenient way to pay your North Bay Hydro bill each month.
Your payment is automatically withdrawn from your bank account on or about the due date each month. With the pre-authorized payment, your hydro bill is sent to you in advance of the date your payment is withdrawn from your bank account. This way, you’ll know ahead of time the exact amount that will be deducted. North Bay Hydro will require a completed Pre-Authorized Payment Plan form and a sample cheque marked ‘void”. It’s as easy as clicking on the link below, printing and completing the form, and mailing or faxing it to us. Please be sure to include the ‘void’ cheque.
Residential and small Commercial/Industrial customers of North Bay Hydro are eligible to participate in the Pre-authorized Monthly Equal Payment Plan. The amount will be based on your average billing for the last twelve-month period, so for that reason the Equal Payment Plan is ideally suited for customers with at least twelve months of history with North Bay Hydro. If twelve months of billing history is not available the amount is determined by one of our Customer Account Representatives. Your account will be reviewed at least twice per year to ensure that your monthly equal payment amount remains reasonable. You will be advised on your regular bill if the amount has been re-assessed. June is the reconciliation month, when your bill will reflect the monthly budget amount, plus or minus any adjustments for overpayment or underpayment. To participate in the Pre-Authorized Monthly Equal Payment Plan through your financial institution chequing account, we require a sample cheque marked ‘void’ and a completed Pre-Authorized Equal Payment Plan Form. It’s as easy as clicking the link above, printing and completing the form, and mailing or faxing it to us.
