Charlottesville Utility Bill Pay

To sign up for the ACSA’s new customer portal and payment system, please click here.

Any check or electronic transfer used to pay an ACSA bill that is returned due to insufficient funds, an invalid account number, a stopped/frozen/hold/”refer to maker” payment, or being drawn on a closed account will be assessed a $35 cash fee. Services will be terminated and this charge, along with any other charges, must be paid in cash before service will be restored if such payment was made to avoid termination of service for non-payment or to have services restored after such termination.

You don’t have to re-enroll in Invoice Cloud if you are already a member of Easy Pay. Both methods of payment provide a convenient, safe, and safe way to automatically pay your monthly utility bill.

Utilize the Budget Plan to eliminate uncertainty surrounding your monthly bill. You can know exactly how much you will owe each month thanks to this free and simple method of helping you manage your monthly expenses. This plan calculates your annual utility costs and divides that sum into 12 equal payments. These payments serve as the “level payment amount” for your monthly billing. Your account is examined every six months to see if your level payment amount should change in order to end your budget year with a zero balance. There may be additional occasions when we adjust your budget amount as a result of modifications to your usage patterns, unusual weather, or adjustments to your utility rates.

Call us at 434-970-3211 to request an application if you’re interested in using the Budget Plan, or fill out and submit the online form instead. Before submitting your request, please read the Budget Plan Rules thoroughly.

When customers are having trouble paying their utility bills, the Utility Billing Office’s Collections Office is in charge of administering payment plans on their utility accounts.

You can talk about your payment options, such as installment plans and payment deferrals, by calling (434) 970-3211.

The Water and Wastewater Assistance Programs and the Gas Assistance Program are administered by the Utility Billing Office to help eligible households pay their utility bills. For more information on these programs, call (434) 970-3211.

The City’s policy on leak credits is intended to provide customers with some financial relief from the effects of unreported water leaks while still providing them with a financial incentive to be concerned about and repair leaks.
