Scam Alert!

You can be assured that you will never get a phone call from YVEA asking to make a payment over the phone to avoid disruption of service.

You will however receive a courtesy call if you have a past due balance.

If you call in to make a payment, we must send you into our automated secure system and you must verify your account

information in order to make a payment.

It is always good practice if you receive a phone call of this nature from any company calling to ask for payment, especially credit card information, that you ask for a phone number and tell them you will call them right back with your payment.

Please call Yampa Valley Electric at (970)879-1160 if you have any questions.

Budget Billing:

Many people like to know, within a few dollars, what their electricity bill will run each month in order to keep within their budget.

Budget Billing is a way to even out your monthly payments in order to avoid those high spikes that can sometimes occur during the peak usage months.

We take the current twelve (12) month’s history at your service location with and round to the next highest five-dollar increment. 

You then pay the same monthly amount going forward. The account is reviewed after six months to ensure there haven’t been any significant increases or decreases in usage; the monthly amount is updated if necessary. The payment amount is then paid for an additional five months with the six month being the a clearing month (account is trued-up). Your average is again recalculated as is was a year ago and you start the process again.

Sign Up:

If you are interested in Budget Billing call us at 970-879-1160 or send an email to


To be eligible for Budget Billing, you must have had residential service at your location for one year or more. Additionally, your account also must be current and in satisfactory credit rating.

Budget accounts are reviewed every six months. If your average use has increased or decreased by 10 percent or more, you are notified and are given the option of increasing or decreasing the budget amount, depending on which direction it needs to go.

If the Member becomes delinquent on the Budget Billing Plan, the member shall be required to pay the balance due in full immediately and be eliminated from the program.

Contact us if you wish to discontinue Budget Billing or if you have made any changes in your electricity usage.

Third Party Notification: 

Third Party Notification is a service that gives YVEA members the opportunity to designate a third-party to whom notices of discontinuance of service for non-payment will be delivered.

Third Party Notification Form

Automatic Payment Plan: 

Many members prefer to have their monthly electricity bill automatically deducted from their bank account or charged to their credit card. 

The process is easy to set up and is convenient.

Automatic Payment Authorization Form Form must include a voided check if using bank draft.
