MidSouth Electric Co-op has its local presence in the community that allows you to come by the office to pay your bill (check, cash or credit card), make changes to your account and apply for service. Our local offices are staffed by local people who are committed to service in all that we do.
Remember to bring your bill stub with you when you make a payment.
When you stop by to pay your bill, the representative will electronically process your payment immediately and provide you with a receipt. Allow 24-48 hours for your payment to be posted to your account.
You can walk into any of our offices from Monday to Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, or drop your payment (check only) in our night drop box before or after regular office hours.
You can pay your bill by mail. All you have to do is send in your bill stub and your check or money order in the payment envelope that you receive with your bill.
Your bill payment envelope should reach us on or before your due date to avoid a lesser of 5% or $10.00 late payment charge on your account.

Budget Billing is a payment plan that lets you level your payments throughout the year so that you do not have to deal with the high’s and low’s in your bill amount that result from seasonal usage variations. You can enroll for Budget Billing if –
• You’ve been a member of MidSouth Electric Co-op for at least 12 months
• You have a good pay history with no late payments in the previous 12 months
How it Works
Based on your previous 12-month usage history, plus anticipated energy costs and other factors, we estimate your energy usage for the year ahead. We then divide the total by 12 to arrive at your monthly Budget Billing payment amount.
Your Budget Billing payment amount is reviewed every October and could be adjusted up or down, depending on the cost of your actual usage.
To find out if you are eligible for budget billing, call us at 936-825-5100.
MidSouth Electric Co-op now has convenient payment kiosks available at our local offices available 24/7.
Not only is the kiosk convenient, it is also user-friendly. Some of the features are presented in both English and Spanish. There is an option to print your receipt, and payments are immediately credited to the account. The kiosks may look like ATMs; however, they do not provide change or accept coins. Any payments made exceeding the member’s balance will be credited to the account.
MidSouth Electric Co-op operates with four billing cycles per month. This enables us to be flexible in meeting your budget needs. The following table helps you better understand the four billing cycles.
Match the due date on your current bill with the dates in the table to determine your current billing cycle. If you wish to change your billing cycle, click here.
Billing cycle changes will be made on the 1st of every month and hence will be effective on your next bill.
