AKRON, Ohio, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether we are catching up on the latest news, checking in with friends and family, shopping for the best deal or streaming television shows and movies, we use the Internet every day to help make our lives easier and more enjoyable. Today, FirstEnergy (NYSE: FE) is encouraging the customers of its electric utilities to receive and pay their monthly electric bills online too. By enrolling in FirstEnergy's eBill program – the convenient and secure electronic billing service – customers can do even more online and free themselves from the clutter of paper bills.
Soon, utility customers who are not currently taking advantage of the electric billing system will receive an email with a link that allows them to quickly and easily register for the free service without having their electric bill on-hand. This email is part of a new campaign – which inspires customers to "do more, paper less," and to "be a reminder-getting, payment-slaying, e-billing animal" – that will include online advertising, social media outreach and bill inserts that showcase the benefits of eBill.
More than one million customers of FirstEnergy utilities already use eBill, and currently enjoy the convenience and security of this free service. In addition to offering greater convenience for customers, eBill is an easy way to go green by reducing resources associated with printing and delivering traditional bills.
After enrolling in eBill, customers can:
- Securely pay monthly electric bill from a computer or mobile device online or set up automatic payments
- View and print past and current bills
- Set up text or email alerts to be notified when bill is ready to be paid
