Contest incentivizes utility e-bill sign-up with account credit prize


Goodyear encourages environmentally friendly, cost saving option

 

 

Goodyear, Ariz. (Oct. 23, 2017) – Would you change the way you receive your utility bill if there was a chance you could win a prize? That is the question behind a contest run by the city of Goodyear to encourage residents to use electronic billing, or e-bills, for utility services. Anyone who currently receives an electronic bill or changes from paper billing to electronic billing between Oct. 31 and Dec. 31 is entered to receive a $50 or $200 bill credit, based on the type of service received from the city.

“Of the nearly 29,000 utility customers served by the city of Goodyear, eighteen percent receive e-bills. While that is great, we know we can do better, so we decided to run this contest,” said Customer Service Supervisor Johnn Gaio. “We encourage e-billing because it has a positive impact on the environment by using less paper, and it opens up a variety of freedoms for our customers because they are able to access their account and pay their bill anywhere they have email access while eliminating the bulk in their mailbox.”

In addition to being environmentally friendly and offering digital access to account information, e-bills are more efficient to process and track, improve accuracy and eliminate concerns arising from lost or damaged mail.

For more information, full contest rules and to sign up for electronic billing, visit www.goodyearaz.gov/ebill, call (623) 882-7887 or email goodyearutilities@goodyearaz.gov.
