Automatic Draft is a free, convenient way to pay your bill automatically each month. You no longer need to write a check, because this bill payment process electronically debits funds each month.
How the program works:
- Once you complete the online bank draft form select Log in to Automatic Draft link, below. Your account will only be drafted when it is reflected on your Duke Energy bill. Any current charges on your account at the time of this request should be paid in the manner you normally use (i.e. cash, check, or money order) prior to signing up for Automatic Draft.
- After you receive your first bill reflecting you are on Automatic Draft (view example), your monthly bill amount will be debited from your chosen active checking, savings, credit union, or money market account and transferred to Duke Energy’s bank automatically.
- You will continue to receive a Duke Energy statement with a message at the top stating the "due date" (the exact date) that the funds will be deducted and processed from your account. If you would like to stop receiving a paper bill, you can sign up for e-Bill and receive your statement notification electronically while Automatic Draft handles paying it each month.
- You can use Automatic Draft to pay for more than one Duke Energy account, and a separate draft is processed for each account. Please complete the online form for each account to be drafted.
If you wish to only make a one-time payment, please visit our credit card/electronic check payment page.
