Convenient — no checks, no stamps
Ensures that your bill is always paid on time — even when life gets hectic
Keeps your payment safe and secure
You’ll continue to receive a monthly statement from PGE, with plenty of time to review it before it’s due. On the due date, the payment will be automatically deducted from your bank account. If you have a question, just give us a call.
When you first apply, continue to pay your bills until you receive a statement that says “Do Not Pay.” That’s how you know Auto Pay is paying your PGE bill for you.
Make budgeting easier: Pay the same amount each month.
A typical electric bill can experience some dramatic ups and downs, as electricity needs change during the year. PGE’s Equal Pay option evens out your monthly bill so you make the same payment every month.
Once a year, we estimate your annual electricity use based on what you’ve used in the past. We divide that annual use by 11 to calculate your monthly Equal Pay amount.
Because your energy use can change over time, we give you a month every year to “catch up,” in which you pay the difference between what you’ve already paid for the year and what you’ve actually used.
If you used less than estimated, you’ll get a credit for future bills in your catch-up month, and if you used more, you’ll have an amount due.
We also review your account every four months to compare your Equal Pay amount to your actual use and adjust your Equal Pay amount if needed. These adjustments help you avoid a large overpayment or underpayment, so you should have only a small bill or credit in your catch-up month.
For more information, see our Equal Pay FAQ.
Your Equal Pay amount is an estimate based on past use. So it’s a good idea to look at your bill each month to compare your actual use to the Equal Pay amount and make sure they are similar.
You can also track any differences throughout the year on the back of your bill, on the line labeled “Equal Pay Payoff Balance.” While it’s normal to have some monthly differences, if you notice big shifts in your energy use, give us a call.
If you’re a residential customer, and your account is current, you can enroll in Equal Pay today.

Choose Your Due Date
Your bill due when it works best for you.
Request a billing due date that fits with your cash flow. It's a program that works well for those on a fixed income or whose paychecks come at specific times during the month. For example, you can request a due date three days after you receive your paycheck.
When you switch to Choose Your Due Date, your first bill will cover either a longer or shorter time period to allow for the schedule adjustment, and therefore may be a little higher or lower than your typical bill.
Your due date will not take effect until next month's bill.
You must be current on your account (zero balance). Customers with time-payment arrangements or medical certificates who are current on their accounts are also eligible.
Sign in to choose your due date.
Work with Multiple Accounts
Options to manage payments when you have multiple PGE business accounts.
If you have a number of properties or facilities, you can streamline transactions for multiple accounts. Just enroll or sign in to:
Create Account Groups: Organize accounts for easy viewing and analysis. Each person can create unique groups without impacting accounts.
View & download bills: Access summary bill for all accounts and bills by account and meter number. Download billing costs and usage for any group.
