What Are the Benefits of eBilling?

Most importantly, by registering for eBilling before November 12 you’ll be helping support local families in need with a donation of six healthy meals through The Food Bank. But, there are also many other benefits to being an eBilling subscriber. These benefits include:

  • Receive your bill from anywhere: Regardless of where you are, whether you’re taking an autumn vacation, working at home, or travelling with the family you never have to worry about missing a bill. As soon as your bill is ready, you’ll receive an email notification with all the important details about your bill including the amount owning and due date.
  • Clear away countertop clutter: You already get enough mail, help tidy your counter space by switching from a paper bill to an electronic copy. You’re clearing clutter and helping to reduce waste by making the switch.
  • Manage Your Electricity Consumption: Cooler weather is here. If you’re trying to keep your electricity costs from heating up, you can monitor what you’re using through My Account, WNH’s online customer portal. eBilling subscribers can also use the portal to monitor their consumption and cut their costs by learning which appliances use the most electricity.

Sign up today and help make a difference in the lives of many local families.
