Payment Options

Online banking Most banks offer online banking and bill payment services. Visit your bank's website and select BC Hydro as a payee. You can also pay in person at your local branch.  
Electronic Funds Transfer Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is a convenient way for your company to make payments and avoid the time needed to create, process, and send multiple cheque payments. You must be a BC Hydro business customer in order to qualify. Request EFT by filling out and emailing a simple EFT request form [PDF, 26 KB].
Pre-authorized payments

Can't pay right now?

If you can’t pay before your bill is due, you may be able to make a one-time payment deferral. Payment deferrals are granted if the account is in good standing and all past payment arrangements have been met.  

If the amount owing is not paid by the due date on your bill, a late payment charge will be applied and your credit rating with BC Hydro may be impacted.
