Frequently Asked Questions
MyClayElectric is a new way of doing business with Clay Electric Cooperative. Our new business system features changes and improvements online, through our automated telephone system, and on your paper bill. In addition to a fresh look, the new mobile app and online account at ClayElectric.com have easy-to-use tools to pay your bill, monitor your energy use, set up payments, update your account and more. Another element of MyClayElectric is our improved automated phone system, which now offers more ways to pay, including check by phone and the ability to enroll in Auto Pay. Enhancements to your paper bill include highlighting the most important information: how much you owe and when your bill is due.
Both offer similar features and allow you to choose how you want to manage your account. If you prefer to use a computer or tablet, we suggest using the web version. If you prefer to use your smartphone, download our new, free mobile app for iPhone and Android devices.
In addition to a new look, your online account offers additional ways to study your energy use. When you log in, you will see alerts and co-op news on the top right side of the dashboard screen. On the app, look for the “Notifications” tab. You can customize how Clay Electric communicates with you. Options can include email, text or push notifications through the app. You can also pay multiple accounts in one transaction.
This web page is the best place to start. It has answers to frequently asked questions, written instructions and video tutorials. We’ll add more information about features and update it as new features become available. We will also provide information in the Kilowatt newsletter and on Facebook. If you have questions after reading the FAQs, call 800-224-4917.
Click here for instructions, or click “Register” in the top right corner of the ClayElectric.com website. You’ll need your account number, last name or name of your business on the account, and the email address you want associated with your account.

Next, go to your email inbox and look for a new email from Clay Electric. This is to verify your email address. In that email, click on the “Verify Account” link, and you’ll go to a page to create and confirm a password. Then click “Submit.”
To ensure account safety, you’ll need to create a security phrase, something that is easy for you to remember but hard for others to guess. When you make payments in the future, you’ll see that phrase in the top right corner of your online account, a visual reminder that it’s safe to make the payment. Enter your phrase and click “Save.”
You can find it on your Clay Electric bill or by calling customer service at 800-224-4917.
