Automated Interactive Voice Recognition (IVR) System
The District offers customers the ability to pay their electric bill and enter meter readings by phone twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week by calling our automated IVR System at 1-866-999-4503.
Customers wishing to take advantage of the IVR system will need their four-digit PIN number and their Norris electric account number. The PIN number assigned to most accounts is the last four digits of the primary phone number on file with the District. The IVR system accepts credit and debit cards, as well as payments from a checking account.
Go Paperless with E-Bill
Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, your electric bill will be available to you online. Each month when your Norris electric bill is generated, you will receive an e-mail from Norris stating that your bill is ready to be viewed.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
The EFT payment option (also known as an automatic payment) is a convenient way that simplifies the method of paying your electric bill. When you sign up for EFT, Norris will automatically deduct your monthly bill amount from your checking or savings account or charge your MasterCard, Visa, or Discover card 5 days prior to the due date of the bill. Your data is securely stored on file and you will still receive monthly statements in the mail showing your kilowatt-hour usage and the amount due.
To sign up for the EFT payment option simply call any Norris office, complete the form on the back of your payment stub, enter your information online when you register for E-Bill, or complete the appropriate form below. Credit card payments can only be used for accounts billed on rates 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 12, 13, 14, 19 and 23.
For more information on any of these payment programs, contact the Customer Accounting Department at (402) 223-4038 or 1-800-858-4707.
