Payment Options

Paying bills – it’s never fun. But at Lamar Light and Power we try and take the edge off by providing customers with several convenient payment options. First, you can drop off your payment in person or mail it to us at 100 North 2nd Street, Lamar, CO 81052. Our hours of operation are 7:00am – 4:00pm, and we welcome you anytime during these hours. If you can’t make it between 7 am and 4 pm, we’ve put out a drop box for you on the West side of the front parking lot.
Online Bill Pay- The City of Lamar has increased your options to pay your utility bill in a safe and secure manner, from the comfort of your home or the ease of your office. This customer service feature was launched in an effort to provide our customers with the most modern of today’s bill paying ability. Online bill payment is a fast and convenient financial planning tool that allows you to view your 12 month consumption history, view your payment history and budget for future utility payments.
If you would like more information or have any questions about this feature you can call 719.336.4376 or 719.336.7456.
CAP Plan- If you feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything checked off your “To Do” list, let Lamar Light and Power make your life a little easier with our CAP Plan. The CAP Plan is a fast, safe, and easy way to pay your city utility bill. Your monthly billing amount is automatically withdrawn from the bank account you specify on the 4th business day of each month. The CAP Plan is a one-time setup application process. All you do is provide a voided deposit slip and signature and that’s it. No more scrambling for an envelope and stamp.
Budget Billing- Budget Billing is a smart way to manage your time and money. It’s for folks who like to budget their expenses in advance. Your electric bill is averaged by adding the last twelve months of usage and dividing it by eleven. This average now becomes your monthly payment. Here are the terms:

  1. You must have been in your residence for at least twelve months.
  2. You will need to have a zero balance on your account at the time of signing the contract.
  3. You must pay the bill by the 10th day of the month, and not fall into past due or delinquent status.
  4. Any balance left over at the beginning of January must be paid by February of the same year to bring your account balance back to zero.

Contracts, terms, and a list of requirements are available at our offices. Come in and sign up, you’ll be glad you did!
Payment Agreements- The last thing we want to do is discontinue service due to delinquent payment. If for some reason you have become delinquent on your bill, you’ll receive a discontinuance notice by mail. In this notice, you’ll be informed that our policy requires your balance be paid in full. If you simply cannot pay your bill in full, we will encourage you to come see us at our office and let us help you find solutions to your delinquent status through a fair and reasonable payment arrangement.
