How does Quick Payment differ from e-Bill or Automatic Payment?
With Automatic Payment, you still receive a monthly billing statement through the mail. Payments are automatically deducted from your bank account each month.

e-Bill provides you with the ability to receive, view and pay your bill online each month for FREE. You can also schedule payments, or pay when it's most convenient for you.

When will my payment show up on my Minnesota Energy Resources account?

Can a payment be made on a rotary or pulse phone?
Sorry, no. The system requires a touch-tone phone. If you don't have a touch-tone phone, you can pay online, or call us at 800-889-9508 to speak to a customer service representative. They can then transfer you to a BillMatrix agent to take your payment over the phone.

Why do I need to register for online access before I can pay?
For your protection, registration is required to verify the identity of the person making the request.

Can I pay several different accounts?
Yes. You can pay multiple accounts. However, a separate service fee will be charged for each transaction.

How do I get a printed receipt?
Print out the confirmation screen as a receipt for your records. It contains a confirmation number that you can reference if you have any questions or problems with your payment.

How will the charges appear on my credit card, debit card or bank statement?
With credit card and debit card payments, there will be one charge listed for the total of your bill payment and service fee. With checking account payments, you will see two charges on your bank statement: one for your bill payment and one for the service fee.

Can I make a payment on behalf of a friend or relative?
You can make a payment on behalf of another person only if their account is associated with your online profile. You can make a payment over the phone by calling 800-889-9508.

Can I be charged for non-sufficient funds (NSF)?
Yes. The same rules apply to checking account payments as a regular check. In fact, if you had a NSF with Minnesota Energy Resources in the past 12 months, and you want to pay online, you will only be allowed to pay by credit card.

Can I pay more than the amount due on my bill?
Yes, you can pay more than the amount due. This would result in a credit on your next bill. An example of where you might want to do so, is if you plan to be out of town for a couple of months and won't be able to make your payments.
