BPU to eliminate fees for paying bill online, telephone

The Board of Public Utilities will no longer be charging customers if they choose to pay their bill online or over the telephone.

Customers were previously charged a $3 fee for paying their bills online or by an automated telephone service.

Those interested can make payments to BPU at anytime during the week.

Rate-users interested in paying their bills by phone can call 1-855-BPU BILL (278-2455). Credit card payments or electronic payments using  a banking account can be made.

Payments made before 1 p.m. will be posted during the day of the payment; payments made after 1 p.m. will be posted the following business day.
