FAQs about Credit Card Payments

How will my payment be confirmed?

Payment by either method will be made known to Centre Wellington Hydro instantaneously therefore, if you wish, you may converse with Centre Wellington Hydro customer service staff immediately after making a payment. Call 519-843-2900 to do so.

Why is a convenience fee required?

There are several low or no-cost means to pay your bill at Centre Wellington Hydro. These include, pre-authorized payment, equal payment plan, telephone banking, internet banking, writing a cheque, placing a payment in our drop box or paying at our office during open office hours. Even so, many customers still prefer to pay by credit card. Credit card companies charge businesses like Centre Wellington Hydro a percentage of the payment for processing it. As a regulated utility, the entire amount of your payment is spoken for – some of the payment goes to the generators, some to the transmitters, some to the market operator and some for debt retirement. Less than 20% of your payment stays with Centre Wellington Hydro. Therefore, to be fair to all customers, we have to ensure that the users of the credit card service pay for the service.

Customers may make payments for transaction amounts up to $1,000.00 and a fee of 1.75% will automatically calculate. For payment transaction amounts larger than $1,000.00, you will be required to repeat the transaction. The examples below will be illustrative.
