Methods for Paying Your Grady EMC Electric Bill
1. Paying online via the internet at Grady EMC's website
This allows you to use your credit or debit card for the transaction. There are prompts to "walk" you through
the process. Payment to Grady EMC is immediate upon you receiving verification from your credit/debit card
company. Your bank statement will show SEDC (Southeastern Data Cooperative) as the Payee, not Grady EMC.
SEDC is the administrator of our billing system. This is an easy, fast method of payment.
2. Automatic Bank Drafts, Credit or Debit Card Drafts
Having your bill paid automatically by "drafting" your bank account, credit card or debit card monthly
eliminates penalties, late-fees, cut-offs, etc. You will still receive a bill each month but it will indicate payment
by automatic draft.
3. Online bill payment processing through a third party.
Information to pay the bill is sent electronically by you to your bank requesting they pay your Grady EMC bill.
YOUR BANK IMMEDIATELY DEBITS YOUR ACCOUNT, and electronically transfers that information to a third
party payment processor. The third party then writes a check to Grady EMC for the amount of your bill and
MAILS it through the postal service to Grady EMC. AS SOON AS THE CHECK IS RECEIVED BY GRADY EMC,
YOUR ACCOUNT IS CREDITED.
Please Note: Grady EMC has no control over the time involved from your bank account being debited until your
account with Grady EMC is credited. A number of days can pass between the third party processor and Grady
EMC receiving payment through the postal service.
