Register For Online Access
The website offers our customers a variety of functions and services.
Many of the services use personal and customer account information.
To protect your privacy, we may require that you establish an online profile.
We reserve the unqualified right to:
- Accept or decline an application to register for online access.
- Terminate any online profile.
- Discontinue the provision of any service related to such an online profile.
When registering for online access, you will either designate or receive a username
and password that you can use to establish your identity when you sign in for and use
certain services. You agree:
- To provide accurate and complete information when registering for online access.
- To update your information as necessary so that it remains accurate and complete.
- Not to impersonate any other person, operate under an alias or otherwise conceal your identity.
The right to use the services and functions of an online profile on the website is limited to you as
the party enrolling and those authorized persons to whom you give your password. You are responsible for
safeguarding your username and password and agree to hold WPSC
harmless from any claims resulting from improper use of your password. You agree to be responsible for all acts
or omissions with respect to access to or use of an online profile by any person using your password.
Please contact WPSC immediately if you believe that the
security of your username or password has been compromised.
Information collected from you on the website (including information about your online profile and customer account)
We will send an email with an activation code to your email address to successfully complete your enrollment in My Account.
Failure to validate your enrollment with a valid email address will require you to enroll again to access the My Account system.
By validating your account with a valid email address, you agree to receive account notices via email.
In addition, you may receive newsletters and other marketing or informational communication.
These communications are optional, and you will have the opportunity to opt out if you do not want them.
By enrolling in My Account, you may choose the paper-free billing option. You understand and agree that
stopping your paper bill means you will no longer receive a paper copy through U.S. mail. You will be able
to view or access your bill by signing in to My Account using your email and password.
We periodically include notices in billing statements, including, but not limited to, notices that are
required by law or a regulatory agency regarding changes in your service. By selecting the paper-free billing
option, you understand and agree that those notices will be available to you only in your online bill.
Your obligation to pay your energy bill by the due date is not altered or modified in any way by stopping your paper bill.
Summary Bill customers will receive only the Summary Bill summary page(s) in paper form.
The Summary Bill is available online along with each individual account enrolled in the Summary Bill.
Summary Bill customers do not receive a paper copy of the bills for the individual accounts enrolled.
If your paper bill is scheduled to stop, you may request continuation of your paper bill at any time.
You are obligated to keep email and payment information up to date. We are not responsible for late or
missed payments due to inaccurate information on the account.
Payments scheduled in My Account:
- Before 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday will post that same day.
- After 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday will post the next business day.
- Anytime Saturday, Sunday or on a holiday will post the next business day.
To ensure timely payments, allow enough time for your payment to post by your due date.
If you do not, or if for any reason your account is not in good standing, you will be fully
responsible for all late fees and face possible service disconnection. If we are unable to
complete the payment because of insufficient funds in your account, or if the payment was
submitted without enough time to post to the account, late fees and service disconnection may
result. We are under no obligation to inform you of an incomplete payment due to nonsufficient
funds or credit in your payment account to process the transaction. In this case, you are
responsible for making alternate payment arrangements to bring your account up to date.
Customers may be subject to the following if there are one or more late payments or returned payments:
- A late payment charge every month until the balance is paid in full.
- Up to a $30 returned check fee.
- Inability to pay by personal check for a rolling 15-month period.
- Requirement to pay with cash, money order, credit card, debit card, traveler's check or cashier's check from a bank or other financial institution.
- Inability to make a payment in My Account with a checking or savings account for 15 months.
We respect your privacy and maintain your My Account password as confidential. You have sole responsibility
for the security of your password, and you are solely responsible for notifying us if your password is lost or stolen.
We are not liable for any actions, claims, costs, damages or expenses arising from a lost, misplaced or stolen password.
If you have forgotten your password or want to change your password for any reason, you may reset your password online.
Unauthorized use includes accessing any account without the permission of the customer of record where we are not in
receipt of that permission. Businesses hired by customers to review energy accounts online must ensure that we receive
permission from the customer of record before account access can be authorized. Any unauthorized access to any account
will result in automatic removal from My Account.
When you give someone your email and My Account password, you are authorizing that person to obtain account information
and/or make changes to your account. You are responsible for all transactions that person performs while using your email
and password. All transactions that person performs, even those transactions you did not intend or want performed, are
authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then only transactions that person performs
after the time you notify us are considered unauthorized. Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with
fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions. For your protection, log off after every online session and close your
browser to ensure confidentiality.
We offer a webchat or pop-up option to provide real-time electronic assistance and
navigation of our online platforms and services. When using the webchat or pop-up option,
you should not enter any personal or sensitive information (e.g., account number, Social
Security number, credit card or email address).
Cancellation and termination of service
We may, without notice, restrict or terminate your use of My Account and any service,
user accounts or passwords at any time. You may cancel services at any time. Any such
restriction or termination will not relieve any obligations you incurred and accrued
before the effective date of such termination.
External links and content
As a service to you and for your convenience, our website, including My Account, may
include links to websites operated by third parties. By providing links to third-party websites,
we are not endorsing or sponsoring such third parties or their websites. You agree that we are not
responsible for the availability of, or content on, any websites operated by third parties that may
be accessible through or linked to our website.
We recommend you read the terms on any site to which you link.
SSL and Encryption
The process of logging on that requires usernames, passwords or any personal information you enter in
fields or forms is secured using an industry standard security technology known as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
By using SSL, we attempt to safeguard the confidentiality of your username, password and other personal information.
For SSL to work, your browser must be capable of supporting SSL; please check with your browser manufacturer for details.
Encryption is the process of converting information into a more secure format for transmission.
The plain text is converted to scrambled code while being transmitted, and then decrypted back to
plain text at the receiving end of the transmission.
The web address will begin with "https" instead of "http" when using SSL.
Service level agreement

Price of mobile app
The mobile app is free to all customers. The mobile app may be deleted at any time.
Use of the mobile app automatically opts the user into receiving emergency alerts from the WPSC

WPSC may send push notifications that are free of charge. Such push notifications are a courtesy,
but users with emergencies should always call 911 with life-threatening emergencies.
Natural gas and electric emergencies also may be reported via the 800 number listed in the mobile app.
Except for emergency alerts, users can deactivate these messages at any time by changing the notification settings in the mobile app.
Setting / Notifications / Alerts
Users are responsible for opting in and updating/maintaining all settings and alerts.
Any user changes and updates may be delayed up to 24 hours before taking effect.
Usage and dollar amount limit alerts are estimates and are therefore subject to change based on the user's actual use.
Usage alerts do not represent final bills.
Payment of bills through Stripe
Some customers of WPSC are able to pay their energy bills on the
mobile app by using the electronic bill payment service offered through Stripe Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Stripe").
While using this service, some of the information is retrieved from Stripe's servers. As a result, your use of the bill
You should review both carefully before signing up for Stripe, as the WPSC
terms and conditions do not apply to the service, and WPSC is not responsible
for the functionality or security of the service.
