With Auto Pay, you never have to worry about paying your bill on time. Auto Pay is Idaho Power’s free tool that allows customers to set up recurring monthly payments. Customers can sign up for Auto Pay through My Account and have their monthly bill automatically deducted from their bank account every month on the due date and posted to their Idaho Power account on your due date. Auto Pay saves you the hassle of paying your bill online or by mail every month.
Register for Auto Pay through My Account, Idaho Power’s online account manager. My Account allows you to register for, manage or cancel your Auto Pay account – just select Billing & Payment Options, or go directly to www.idahopower.com/autopay.
Auto Pay takes effect immediately. Please note: If you sign up for Auto Pay and your account has a past due balance, our system will request an Auto Pay payment for the past due amount the next business day. Following that, your bill would then be auto withdrawn on your current bill’s due date. If the current bill’s due date has already passed, the payment will be withdrawn from the bank immediately, posting to your Idaho Power account the next business day.
If you schedule a one-time payment for the full balance, your monthly Auto Pay withdrawal will be skipped.
If you are making a partial payment with your one-time payment, your Auto Pay payment for the remaining balance will be withdrawn on the regularly-scheduled due date or after the one-time payment processes, whichever comes later.
Yes, you can make a one-time payment anytime, even if you’re set up for Auto Pay. Note: If you make a one-time payment near your Auto Pay date, your automatic payment may have already begun processing. This can result in a duplicate payment. If a duplicate payment occurs, your next Auto Pay will be skipped.
Yes. Auto Pay and Budget Pay are made to work together. Not only can you make your payment automatically, but you will also know approximately how much each bill will be. Each program works well alone, but they are often combined for even greater convenience.
Yes, unless you are signed up for Paperless Billing. Paperless Billing and Auto Pay are recommended for maximum convenience. The upcoming date and amount of the automatic payments will be printed on the bill, so you’ll know exactly how much will be deducted and when. A reminder email, with the scheduled payment date and amount, will be sent two business days prior to the due date.
The Auto Pay deduction will be listed on your monthly bank statement as “IDAPOWER.” You also will receive a confirmation email, and the payment will be reflected on your next Idaho Power bill.
Auto Pay can be canceled up to 5 a.m. Mountain Time on the due date. To cancel Auto Pay, sign into My Account and select Billing & Payment Options. After the cancellation window, the payment will be sent to the bank and cannot be stopped. Just as if you were paying by check, a $20 returned payment fee will be applied to your Idaho Power account if there are insufficient funds. Your bank may charge you additional fees.
