Pay your AEP electric bill by logging in to your online account through the specific local subsidiary website, locating the Pay My Bill section and following the prompts to send the payment. Online accounts typically support payments via bank account or debit card and cover current usage charges.
Paying your AEP bill online requires you to create an account with your power provider in order to view the exact details of your usage. After signing in, view your recent statement, and click on the Payments button to initiate the process. You must choose from your existing payment methods or enter a new method, and then specify whether you wish to pay your current balance or a portion of the bill due. You may also pay a set dollar amount in advance.
AEP consists of eight different regional power companies servicing areas across the Midwestern United States, including Ohio, Texas and Indiana. Each company operates its own website that allows customers within its district to view information about coverage and pay bills. It is not possible to access an account for one region through the website of another. As such, you need to log into your account through the site for your specific power provider with your User ID and password. If you are unsure of your specific provider, AEP.com offers a bill payment search tool that lets you enter your ZIP code and locate the appropriate page for your local provider.
