It takes approximately 2-5 business days to guarantee connection and/or a transfer of service. We recommend calling at least one week in advance to ensure your power is connected before moving in.

How will I receive my Maritime Electric bill?

You can receive your bill in the mail, or sign-up for e-billing and receive your bill via email. When setting up your new account, ask your Customer Service Representative to sign you up for e-billing, or visit MyPower to get started.

When will I receive my Maritime Electric bill?

At Maritime Electric, we have multiple billing cycles. You can determine your billing cycle by contacting us at 1-800-670-1012 and asking your Customer Service Representative. If you already have a MyPower account, you can see when you will receive your next bill.

If you do not have a MyPower account but wish to make one, you can do so by filling out the online registration form.

What is a pre-authorized payment agreement?

If you are signed up for pre-authorized payments, it means money automatically comes out of your account each month to pay for your Maritime Electric bill. This is a worry-free way to make sure your bill is paid in full and on-time. If you make pre-authorized payments, that means you do NOT have to manually make a payment each month.

If you wish to sign-up for pre-authorized payments, you will need to complete our Pre-Authorized Debit Plan Agreement [PDF- 84 KB] and return it to us.

Am I currently on pre-authorized payments?

If you are unsure if you are signed up for pre-authorized payments, please call us at 1-800-670-1012 or login to your My Power account.
