PAHRUMP, Nev. – Valley Electric Association, Inc. (VEA), a member-owned electric cooperative headquartered in Pahrump, recently introduced a free online application known as SmartHub that allows its members to pay their bills and view detailed information about their energy usage from a computer, smartphone or tablet.
“VEA is aware that a growing number of consumers are navigating their lives through their electronic devices,” said Dan Tillman, VEA’s executive vice president of administration and finance. “This is why we introduced SmartHub, a simple and secure tool that allows our members to pay their bills and track their energy usage at the click of a button.”
Members can access SmartHub from their computers by visiting www.vea.coop and clicking on the SmartHub icon. SmartHub consolidates the functions of VEA’s E-bill and VMeter services into one easy-to-access portal. Members can access SmartHub with the login information from their existing online accounts. Those who haven’t paid their bills online yet can easily set up their new accounts.
VEA members can also download the SmartHub app onto their smartphones or tablets from Apple’s App Store or the Google Play Store. Members who download the app should use the search feature to select Valley Electric Association as their utility provider. After selecting VEA as their provider, members can log in or create new online accounts from their smartphones and tablets.
“Many VEA members are already using SmartHub to access their accounts,” Tillman said. “We encourage members to download the app and discover its many useful features.”
