If you are wondering how to pay for electricity in Puerto Rico, there are a few options. Whether you want to pay online, or not, the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority makes it easy to pay that terrible (at least for me) bill.
You can access the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority at http://www.prepa.com.
Click on “My Account” on the top right corner.
Make sure the webpage is en English, otherwise click “English” on the top right corner.
Then register for an account if you haven’t already done so.
Once registered, enter your email and your password to enter.
Once in, click “View”.
There you can see your account details and you can view your bill as well as the consumption and payment history, even projected usage! (For some reason the “consumption projection” section is in Spanish even if you are in the English version of the website. Use Google web browser Chrome’s translate tool for a decent translation).
Choose whether you want to pay using a check or a credit/debit card.
You can now click on “Pay”, and that will take you to the payment page.
(I have a bank from the US and I pay my bills just fine, you don’t need a local bank to make payments, FYI)
Now that you know how to pay your electric bill online, what are the other payment options?
You can pay using a check, credit/debit card or even cash (not recommended) using the pay stub mailed to you each month.
You can pay via the phone automated service:
Dial 787-521-3434 or 787-521-3050 for the hearing impaired.
Go through the automated service to make your payment.
