    The best way to do this is through Cleco's Bank Draft Program.

To enroll in Bank Draft, call Cleco customer service at 1-800-622-6537 or visit a customer service office.
  • Why is my bill higher this month?

    Two things can make your bill higher – using more electricity and higher fuel costs.

    Weather conditions, like heat in the summer, will cause you to use more kilowatt-hours of electricity to keep your home or business comfortable. Adding new appliances or equipment and an increase in the number of people living in your home also can increase energy use.

    Higher fuel costs make your bill higher. Cleco uses natural gas at many of its power plants to generate electricity; therefore, the price of natural gas affects your bill. The Louisiana Public Service Commission allows Cleco to pass on a portion of its fuel costs to customers in the form of a fuel cost adjustment charge. It’s calculated by multiplying the fuel rate and the amount of electricity used. Although you cannot reduce the fuel rate, you can reduce the amount of electricity you use, which could lower your total bill.

  • What is Cleco's Levelized Billing (Budget Pay) Program?

    Cleco created this program to help customers balance their payments. Changes in temperatures and other life events can cause energy bills to fluctuate. Levelized Billing spreads your energy usage over a 12-month period, so you pay approximately the same amount each month. Knowing what to expect each month also helps with other expenses.

    The amount you pay on Levelized Billing is based on a 12-month average of your actual energy bills from the previous 12 months.Each month the average is calculated. This average is always rounded to the next whole dollar amount. An adjustment is made to the average bill amount each month to avoid overpayment or underpayment on your account.

    You must have a zero account balance and be a customer in good standing to be on Levelized Billing. To enroll in this program, call Cleco customer service at 1-800-622-6537 or visit a customer service office.

  • How do I set up a payment extension?

    Payment extensions can be requested through MyAccount, automated phone system, call center or customer service offices.
  • Are there any state or federal agencies that can help me pay my electric utility bill?

    Yes. The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is federally funded program that helps low-income households with home energy bills by providing payment and/or energy crisis assistance based on income guidelines. Each state receives funds from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, so programs vary by state. In Louisiana, funds are administered by the Louisiana Housing Corp. (LHC) and distributed by community action agencies throughout the state.

    In 2020, the program received supplemental funds due to COVID-19. To apply, customers must contact their local community action agency. A list of Louisiana’s agencies is available at and click on COVID-19 Energy Assistance.
