Lakeland Electric’s newest billing program for residential customers is Pay As You Go (PAG).
And the best part, there’s no security deposit required, and if you have a deposit with us, we will credit it back to your account.
Just like putting gas in your car – with Pay As You Go, you pay for your electricity first, and then use it. Customers create an initial credit on their account of at least $25.00 including unbilled charges at the time of setup. Lakeland Electric will provide electricity and other utilities as long as there is a credit balance on the account. Customers can add funds to their account whenever they choose and for whatever amount they wish. Customers can also set up an automatic bank draft for their account that will periodically add funds based on their settings.
Lakeland Electric’s Average Billing Plan allows you to pay a fixed amount each month. The fixed amount will be based on the average cost of consumption based utility services (electric, water, and wastewater) you received at your home from the previous 12 months of billing. The benefits of this program include:
- No more guessing what your monthly payment will be!
- Large fluctuations between winter and summer bills are eliminated!
To qualify for the program, you must be a residential and/or a small commercial account (General Service Non-Demand.) You must also be current with your payments.
To enroll, contact Customer Service at (863) 834-9535 or use our easy online form!

The account must have a payment history in good standing.
The account must be active for at least 6 months with Lakeland Electric.
The last payment extension must be at least 90 days ago.
Extensions can be made by calling (863) 834-9535 from 7:30 am to 8:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Or, by signing into Manage My Account, 24 hours a day.
Delay days is available for customers who get paid once a month and need to change the due date of their bill to accommodate their pay day. Customers must be current on their bill to qualify for Delay days. For example, teachers, Social Security recipients, and customers on disability payments may qualify for delay days.
