The System offers a Bank Draft Plan for paying electric bills. The plan authorizes WCMES to send the customer’s bank a draft each month, near the discount date, in the amount of the electric bill. The customer receives the regular bill marked “Memorandum only; do not pay” to inform the customer of the amount of the draft and kWh used. Bring a voided check and a government issued photo id such as a driver’s licenses to our office at 11181 Hwy. 22, Martin, TN 38237.
