How can I pay my Bill with Bay Of Plenty Energy?

With BOPE there is a number of methods to pay your bills -

Direct Debit Variable -This is a popular and hassle-free payment method. You still receive a monthly energy account and the full amount owing (less any applicable prompt payment discount) is automatically deducted from your bank account on the due date. If you wish to stop a payment all you need to do is call them at least 2 days prior to the payment coming out. If you are a new customer and choose to pay by variable direct debit you will not be required to pay a bond.

Direct Debit Fixed - An agreed amount can automatically be paid on a regular basis by either direct debit or automatic payment. Bay Of Plenty Energy will estimate the fixed amount needed to keep your account current and you will still receive a monthly energy account providing you with a regular update of your balance. Special conditions apply for those wishing to use this plan.

Advance Pay - By paying your estimated annual energy costs in advance, you don't need to worry about missing a monthly payment. You still receive your monthly account to keep track of your usage. Plus, you'll receive a 20% prompt payment discount each month instead of the standard 15%! At the end of the year if there is an overpayment we will take that into account in your next advance payment or any shortfall will need to be paid.

Monthly Cheque - Simply send your cheque together with your remittance advice to Bay of Plenty Energy in the freepost envelope provided with your account. Please allow four business days for Bay of Plenty Energy to receive and process your payment, so be sure to send it before the due date. (Please do not send cash in the mail.)
