Drive-through payment lane to close in March at DREMC Manchester office

Duck River EMC members in Coffee County have made the drive-through payment window at the Manchester District Office the busiest in the entire service area. This is why construction of a second drive-through lane will start in March.

Unfortunately, this will necessitate the closing of the existing payment window while contractors work to add the second lane. Starting March 8, co-op members will need to park and come inside the office to pay their electric bills, or use other payment alternatives. Completion of the new drive-through lane is expected in June.

Manchester District Manager Michael Millraney says a special payment line will be set up inside to help speed the transaction process while the drive-through is under renovation.
“We will do our best to get folks in and out as quickly as possible,” he adds.

In the meantime, DREMC reminds members of other convenient ways to pay their electric bills, including:

  • Online at – The co-op’s website has a bill pay feature that’s easy to use. Just click the “Pay My Bill” button.
  • Use the DREMC mobile app – Download the free mobile app or mobile web app for secure access to account information, to view bills and payment history, manage alerts and reminders, and make payments. Go to the website for more information.
  • Bank draft or electronic check – Sign up to have your electric bill deducted from your checking account on the due day or pay by electronic check online using the DREMC bill presentment service.
  • By telephone – Call your local DREMC office and pay with a credit/debit card.

“Once the second drive-through lane is open, it will be more convenient for folks who prefer use this method of paying their bills,” Millraney says, “There will be shorter wait times and less traffic congestion.”
