Bill Payment Options
Cookson Hills Electric offers several convenient options for you to pay your electric bill.
Kiosks have been installed at the Stigler office in the outside drive-thru lane and at the Sallisaw office in the drive-thru lane on the north side of the drive-thru window. The kiosks will accept cash and credit/debit card payments 24 hours a day, seven days per week. To make a payment, you will need your payment stub or your account number. If you have your payment stub, you may scan the barcode on your payment stub with the barcode reader located in the upper right corner of the kiosk. Or you may enter your account number on the screen and follow the prompts.
Please note the following: the kiosks will not make change. Your cash payment credited to your account will be equal to the exact amount of dollars you insert into the kiosk. If you want to pay the exact amount of your bill, you will either need to make your payment in the lobby during normal operating hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) or use a credit or debit card.
All credit or debit card payments will automatically be assessed a $1.50 convenience fee when made at the kiosk. To avoid the $1.50 convenience fee, you can continue to make face-to-face credit/debit card payments with a cashier at the drive-thru window or in the lobby, or you may enroll in the auto credit card payment program. If you must make a credit or debit card payment after normal operating hours through the kiosk, you will be assessed the $1.50 convenience fee.
If a payment is made after 8:00 p.m., the payment will not be credited to your account until the following day at 6:00 a.m. The convenience fee is not applicable to cash payments.
If you have questions regarding how to use the kiosk, please call us Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 800-328-2368, and we will be happy to assist you.
