Electronic Payments (Online and Phone):

CVEC offers electronic payments through a payment processor integrated with our Member Information and Billing System Provider, Southeastern Data Cooperative (SEDC).

To make a payment online access your account through the secure member web portal, Access MyCVEC. From there you can view your usage, your previous bills, make a one-time payment, or set up recurring payments on your electric bill.

Once you have completed your transaction, you will receive an email confirmation and your CVEC account records will be updated. If you are making this payment to restore service or to avoid an imminent disconnection for non-payment, please contact CVEC by phone to alert us of your payment.

Although we now offer the convenience of online transactions, you may still contact one of our member service representatives any time you have a question about your bill by emailing us at or calling 800-367-2832, Option 0.

CVEC Prepaid:

CVEC now offers a Prepaid option on residential accounts. We were one of the first electric cooperatives in the Commonwealth to receive permission from the State Corporation Commission to offer this members service. For details of this option, visit our Prepaid page.

Pick Your Billing Date:

You can now choose your own billing date ... and date due, too! Read the details here.
