Get a $5 credit when you sign up with DWP for automatic bill pay

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is offering a $5 credit incentive for customers to enroll for electronic bill payment. Electronic bill payment provides customers an easy way to pay bills on-line, check their water and energy usage, and access environmental information. Paying bills electronically is also helpful to the environment because it reduces paper and printing associated with bills.

To register on the website, customers need their Customer Access Number (CAN) from their bill, the last four digits of their Social Security Number or Tax ID, and their e-mail address. To enroll for online or phone payments, customers will also need their bank account information. The $5 credit will be provided once on each residential or commercial account upon enrollment.

This program is free of charge for customers who have an automatic payment plan through their checking account. There is still a premium charge for those who pay by debit or credit card.

To register on-line, customers should log on the LADWP website. For additional information or to pay by phone, customers may also call 1-800-DIAL-DWP. (1-800-342-5397).
