Remote Payment and Account Options
As always, numerous options are also available for members who would like to make payments or manage their accounts without visiting an NGEMC office. These options include account management, outage reporting, and payment options available through our website and the My NGEMC Account app. Members can also make payments or report outages 24/7 using our automated phone lines.
As always, please be mindful of potential scams from callers demanding payment and threatening you with disconnection. If you receive this type of call, do not provide any information and hang up quickly. Report incidents via our Scam Alert Page or call one of NGEMC’s published phone numbers.
ORU Emergency Grant to Local Schools
NGEMC extends a very special thanks to all members who participate in Operation Round Up! Earlier this week, ORU grants totaling $50,000 were awarded to our local school systems to assist with student meal programs and technology needed for remote learning during the pandemic.
The grant was possible due to the generosity of members who participate in ORU. For more information on ORU, or to opt-in to giving to the program, please visit our ORU information page.
NGEMC will communicate further essential information and response plans to members through our website. Visit www.NGEMC.com/COVID19 for the latest information.
