Automatic Bank Draft
Having your electric bill automatically drafted from a bank account saves time and ensures that your payment is not late. Payments are drafted on the payment due date. To sign up for CHELCO's bank draft program, fill out this form and submit it to any of our area offices, or call us at (850) 892-2111.
Set up your account portal and take control of your CHELCO account. The online portal is available when you need it and allows you to safely make payments from your computer using your checking account or credit card (additional fee required) or set up automatic bank drafts.
For your convenience, CHELCO has kiosks available at five of our area offices: DeFuniak Springs, Freeport, Santa Rosa Beach, Bluewater Bay and Auburn. Kiosks are available 24/7 and can accept cash, debit or credit card payments ($3 processing fee for debit/credit).
(CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE DUE TO COVID-19) We have six area offices available during normal business hours, Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., to accept payments or provide information on your account and other assistance.
