  • By check, cash, VISA, MasterCard, Discover & AMEX at the Borough office at 620 West Chestnut Street, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  • At the night drop at the Borough Office
  • At the Perkasie Borough Authority office (Cash & check only, no credit cards)

Penalties
To avoid penalties on your account, payments must be received in our office by 4:00 p.m. on the due date specified on your bill. Electric bills that are not paid by the due date are subject to late payment charges applied monthly as follows: 5% of the then unpaid balance of the monthly bill and 1.5% of the outstanding balance from previous billings. All payments are applied to the most aged balances first.

Non-Sufficient Funds – a $25.00 fee will be charged to the account whenever a check is returned to the Borough unpaid by the customer’s financial institution.

Estimated Bills – An estimated bill is estimated based on previous consumption instead of an actual meter reading. The Borough uses estimated billing during times when they cannot get to the meter. The next actual meter reading will correct any over or under estimate.

Disconnection of Services for Nonpayment – Failure to pay your electric bill on time could result in a disconnection of services. Payment arrangements can be made prior to disconnection. For more information please call (215) 257-5065.

Budget Billing – The Borough offers a budget billing program to homeowners who have a one-year established billing history. This billing option will generate a monthly bill for actual electric charges; however, the total due will be a pre-determined monthly average of utility services based on your billing history and evaluated every month. For more information on our budget billing program please contact the Borough at (215) 257-5065.
