Valley to open new EasyPay Kiosks in Nye

Valley Electric Association is making it easier for member-owners in Sandy Valley, as well as Amargosa Valley and Beatty, to make payments.

Valley Electric announced in October that it is rolling out a new EasyPay kiosk on Oct. 8 at the co-op’s warehouse at 1150 Quartz Ave. in Sandy Valley. Announcements will come soon on kiosks in Amargosa Valley and Beatty, according to a news release from Valley.

The future Amargosa Valley kiosk will be at 33 S. Power Line Road and Beatty’s kiosk is planned for 1400 W. Knight Ave.

Consumer-members will be able to pay electric and broadband bills 24-7 with cash, e-check or credit and debit card through the kiosks. No change is available at the kiosk.

EasyPay kiosks are available in the Pahrump area, one being at the co-op’s headquarters at 800 E. Highway 372. Another kiosk is available at Smith’s Food and Drug at 601 S. Highway 160, which opened in June 2014.

To use the kiosk, consumer-members will need one of three things: an account number, a bill or a prepaid metering member card, according to a news release.

According to a news release from Valley, “the kiosk will prompt billpayers for a last name, followed by the phone number associated with the statement.”

For those who experience issues using kiosks, they should call 877-876-7076.

Consumer-members can also access their bills via SmartHub, which can be accessed through Valley’s website at vea.coop. Access can also be gained using a mobile device: iOS smartphones, Android phones and tablets.

SmartHub offers a place for member-owners to “manage payments, notify customer service of account and service issues,” check usage and “receive special messaging from VEA” or Valley Communications Association, according to information on Valley’s website.
