Billing Cycles to Change

Members should prepare to have a different payment deadline

Utilities generate bills based on what is called “billing cycles.” Billing cycles are determined by monthly meter reads, which are done by meter readers that walk from house to house, documenting the electrical usage data. Meters are grouped into clumps called routes. These routes are usually determined by location and are important because a meter reader can only collect so many readings in one day; therefore, routes create a feasible collection schedule for meter readers. The collection of routes for a specific period is called a cycle, which determines your billing cycle.

Beware of Scams

Scammers are Using New Techniques to Target Local Businesses and Residents

Victory Electric would like our members to be aware of scammers who have attempted to defraud Victory Electric members by trying to collect funds over the phone. These scams have happened in the past, but the scammers are getting more sophisticated. In some cases, they have spoofed caller ID’s, so when they call, your caller ID will have Victory Electric’s name and phone number. Individuals will call claiming to be a representative from the “electric company” told members if they didn’t go buy a pre-paid credit card to pay their electric bill, they would be disconnected within an hour.
