TAMPA, April 21, 2006

For 100,000 Tampa Electric customers, e-Bill, an online payment option that lets customers pay their electric bill quickly and easily each month, is now the option of choice.

Nearly one in six Tampa Electric customers have done away with paper bills by enrolling in the program, which each month lets you see and pay your electric bill online. Another advantage e-Bill offers is the ability to see your previous payment activity and easily download and print billing statements.

With e-Bill, customers can pay their monthly electric bill directly from a checking or savings account when it’s most convenient for them – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Customers can also schedule online payments for future dates.

Signing up for e-Bill only takes a few minutes and a free Demo Tour is available.
