Your Bill

Your Bill

Our goal at A&N Electric Cooperative is to provide accurate, timely monthly bills to the members we serve. Customer service specialists are standing by during regular business hours, 7:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, to answer any questions.

Receiving Your Bill

USPS Paper Bills are processed and mailed to the address on your account each month. If you do not receive a bill, please contact our billing office. Email Paperless billing is available if you no longer wish to receive a paper bill. You can continue to view your paper bill image and bill inserts on our website. You will receive an e-mail notification when your bill is ready to be viewed. Sign up for paperless billing with SmartHub or call our office and a customer service specialist will help set this up for you. If you would like to receive a paper bill but do not use the return envelope, contact our office and a customer service specialist will be happy to mark your account to no longer receive a return envelope.

Capital Credits

As a nonprofit utility company, A&N electric Cooperative works hard to provide reliable and affordable service. Any profit we earn from your business is allocated to each member in the form of a capital credit account. Your capital credit balances are printed on the back of your bill annually, usually in April. Capital credits are refunded in part each year as approved by our Board of Directors in the form of a refund and will show as a credit on your bill. Past members will continue to receive a capital credit refund check. Remember to inform the Cooperative of any address changes so that you will continue to receive your capital credit refund. To learn more about capital credits, call 757-787-9750.

Members Helping Members

Members Helping Members is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization established to provide financial assistance to less fortunate cooperative members who cannot afford the cost of their electric service bills. A&N Electric Cooperative has agreed to assist them in collecting tax deductible donations to fund the program. If you would like to make a monthly tax deductible contribution to MHM, check the box on the bottom portion of your bill or sign up here. The Cooperative will add the designated amount to your bill each month. You will receive a statement of your yearly contribution on the back of your January bill.

Meter Laws

Virginia law makes any tampering with a meter, or attempting to divert electricity in any way, an illegal act that is punishable by a fine or imprisonment, or both. Tampering with A&N Electric Cooperative equipment is also dangerous and could result in fatal injury.
