Where can I pay my bill in person?
Answer:

A number of payment locations are conveniently located throughout our MaineMassachusettsNew Hampshire service area. To find the nearest location to make a payment, please use Western Union's location finder HERE.

NOTE: Effective February 6th, 2018, Hannaford Supermarkets will no longer accept Western Union payments.


Please be aware that some locations may require a bill in order to make a payment or process a security deposit. Federal requirements limit the maximum payment amount at $2,500 per transaction. Use only authorized payment agents to facilitate timely payment posting!

Many of our customers pay their bill directly to us or use a payment agent that we've authorized to collect customer payments. However, some customers have used bill payment services that do not have any arrangements with us to process payments. We cannot ensure that payments made through one of these unauthorized bill payment services will be forwarded to us in a timely manner or even ensure that payment will be forwarded at all.

To protect yourself and your utility service, be sure to follow these steps:

  • Use caution when making your payment through a third-party bill payment service that is not authorized by Unitil.
  • Be sure to bring both portions (top and bottom) of your bill or provide your 14-digit Unitil account number.
  • The payment agent might charge a service fee for each transaction. Check your local phone directory and contact the payment agent for specifics. Most importantly, always keep your receipt.

Pay Online or by Phone - We accept payments by credit/debit card or electronic check on our secure websiteWith a quick, toll-free phone call, you can also pay your bill using your credit card (Visa or Mastercard only) or by check using our automated call answering system. No waiting required! If you wish to speak to a representative to pay by credit card, a $2.75 handling fee per transaction will apply. For a list of our Customer Service phone numbers, click HERE.

I've logged in to my online account but cannot access my billing or usage data. Why can't I see it?

Why does my budget billing monthly payment amount sometimes change?
Answer:

Generally, your budget billing monthly payment amount will change once or twice within the year. These adjustments are made to your payment amount to prevent you from having a large amount due or credit balance at the end of the program year. Prior to our changing your payment amount, we will include a note on your bill to make you aware of the new amount, which will appear on your next bill. The decision to change your payment amount is based on several factors. While we try to limit the number of adjustments, your payment amount may change when:

  • The price of electricity and/or natural gas changes
  • Warmer or colder temperatures mean you will use more or less energy to heat or cool your home
  • Your monthly usage has changed compared to prior usage history that was used for calculating your payment amount
  • You have purchased or replaced appliances
How do I cancel my enrollment in the Budget Billing program?
Answer:
You may cancel your budget plan on our secure website by submitting a request on our "Questions & Comments" form, or contact our Customer Service Team at  888-301-7700800-852-3339 (Capital-area electric), 800-582-7276 (Seacoast-area electric), or 866-933-3820 (natural gas customers) 866-933-3821.  After we receive your cancellation request, your next billing statement will reflect the cancelled budget. Your bill will include any previous balance owed, your current charges, and your deferred balance from the program. The total amount billed will be payable by the due date reflected on your bill.
How do I read my meter?
Answer:

Your meter could be one of several models we use in our service areas. Digital and odometer displays are the most straightforward to read because they present your energy usage directly; dial meters can be a little more difficult. Click here to learn how to read your dial meter.
