OCEC offers members many different options for paying their bill that are both easy and convenient.

Payments may be made by check, money order or cashier’s check through the mail. Include the payment stub from your bill with your preferred form of payment, using the return envelope provided.

OCEC offices are open weekdays, 8 AM – 4 PM. Stop in to pay your bill and one of our friendly, member service representatives will be happy to assist you.

Cash, checks, money orders and card payments are accepted in offices located in Cloudcroft, Alto, and Carrizozo.

A drop box is available at each office location if you need to drop off a payment outside of normal business hours. Please only utilize the drop box if you have a check or money order. Including your payment stub with your payment is advised. Cash payments using this method are highly discouraged.

Payments may be made online by visiting www.ocec-inc.com. Simply click on the “Pay Online” button in the upper right hand corner of the home page. An email address and account number will be needed the first time you login.

Logging into your electric account online also gives you access to usage information to help you better manage your energy consumption.
