With Our Recurring Payment Plan

Save time and forget about late payment worries by signing up for our Recurring Payment Plan.

With this free service, your Direct Energy energy bill will be deducted electronically from your bank account each month. You'll save on postage and cheque-writing costs, plus your payments will always be on time — even when you're away from home.

To join the Recurring Payment Plan, all that's required is to:

  1. Print the application form (PDF: 140k).
  2. Read the Terms and Conditions.
  3. Complete and sign the form.
  4. Send the form and a blank personalized cheque to us using one of these methods:

How does it work?

  • Once enrolled, you will continue to receive a statement each month.
  • Your statement will show the amount and date your payment will be deducted from your bank account.
  • A message will appear on your statement each month to keep you informed of your transactions.

When is the payment withdrawn from my account?

  • Watch for a message on your bill to indicate you are on the plan.
  • The date and withdrawal amount will be shown on your bill.
  • Your payment will be withdrawn the morning of your billing due date.

Note: To avoid a charge for insufficient funds (NSF), sufficient funds or bank approved overdraft protection must be available when payment is due.

What if your bank account changes?

Simply advise us in writing and include your new personalized cheque marked VOID. We'll do the rest.
