Automatic Payment is a simple way to have your utility bill automatically deducted from your checking or savings account each month. It's an electronic funds transfer system that saves you the trouble of writing checks and buying stamps.
(Please Note: the savings account option is not available for Wisconsin Power & Light customers.)
How does Automatic Payment work?
Once you're signed up, you'll receive your Alliant Energy billing statement at the usual time. Your billing statement will show the date the payment transfer will be made.
But instead of having to send a check, the amount due will be automatically deducted from your bank account on the date shown on your bill.
With Automatic Payment, you'll avoid the hassle of writing a monthly check - and you'll never worry about a late payment if you're away from home, ill or just busy.
How is Automatic Payment different from online billing?
With Automatic Payment, you'll receive a paper billing statement in the mail each month, and the amount due will be deducted from your checking or savings account on the specified date.
If you enroll in the Paperless Billing option, you'll no longer receive a paper bill - you will receive and review your bill online. And instead of having the amount due deducted automatically, you'll schedule an e-Bill payment for a date you choose.

Can I sign up for both Automatic Payment and online billing?
Yes! When you enroll in both programs, you'll receive and review your bill online - but the amount due will be deducted from your bank account automatically.
How do I sign up?
Sign up online through My Account - all you need is a copy of a recent bill and your checking or savings account information.
