Dixie Electric Cooperative DOES NOT use ANY local businesses as authorized payment locations. The only physical locations where payments can be made are at our offices located at 9100 Atlanta Highway in Montgomery, and 402 East Blackmon in Union Springs. We also do not accept payments via Paypal. Payments can be made online at www.dixie.coop or through our automated system at 1-888-349-4332. We are NOT responsible for payments made at unauthorized locations, or for delays in receipt and posting of payments.
Please also be aware that if you choose to use a payment method other than those methods mentioned above, there can be a delay in posting of payments due to the various remittance processes used by these unauthorized payment agents. Some delays can be as long as 3-5 business days. Should an account be disconnected for non-payment due to these payment delays, you will be responsible for any applicable fees and deposits required for reconnection of service.
