For those situations when you may need some extra time to catch up on your electric bill, a Payment Installment may be able to help.
It is your sole responsibility to pay your OPPD bill on time to avoid late fees, collection activity or disconnection of service. OPPD reserves the right to reject your request to enroll in the Payment Installment service at any time. By enrolling in the Payment Installment, OPPD does not assume responsibility for payment on your bill once enrolled into the program. If you miss one payment the system will automatically remove you from the Payment Installment and you will be billed for the full amount owed (or due). Customers removed from a Payment Installment are unable to reapply for six months.
Based on the length you choose, 6, 9 or 12 months, your balance will be rolled into a payment installment. Your monthly installment is calculated using the number of months indicated on the form. Example: If your past due amount for electric service is $240 and want to pay that over 12 months, OPPD would calculate your monthly installment by dividing $240 by 12 to get $20. This $20 will be added each month to your monthly bill.
