Hike in postage rates is yet another reason to use CMP’s ‘eBill’ option

AUGUSTA, Maine, May 29, 2009 — Central Maine Power Company (CMP) is offering customers a way to save money in the wake of another increase in postage rates. The utility says enrolling in its eBill payment option can bring cost savings to customers in just a few easy clicks.

“The cost of postage going up by another two cents gives our customers two more reasons to save with eBill,” says CMP spokesperson John Carroll. “It’s good for the environment and for your wallet.”

Customers who enroll in eBill receive e-mail reminders to let them know when their payment is due. They can log in and make a payment at their convenience, or they can sign up for automatic monthly payments that deduct the amount due from the account of their choice. The system stores 12 months of bills and usage data, and offers customers the option to print a paper copy for their records.

“Thousands of customers are already enrolled in eBill, and they tell us they really like the convenience, cost savings, and the environmental benefits,” says Carroll. “The system is completely secure and it’s easy to use — it’s really worth giving a try.”
Customers who would like to enroll can visit and click on the eBill button on the home page.
