CPU’s electronic account tools are fast, free, secure and convenient


If you use the PowerLine portal or mobile app to manage your account with Clarksdale Public Utilities, then you know the benefits of these electronic tools. Along with 24/7 account access, they allow customers to monitor usage and securely pay bills, and payments post immediately to keep accounts in good standing.


Even though CPU offers these services free of charge, some customers are using third-party companies to pay their CPU bills. We want customers to know that CPU is not affiliated with these providers, many of which make money by charging fees.


Another concern is that payments made through third-party services take time to reach CPU. These delays have caused problems for customers who did not realize they had missed their CPU payment due dates.


It is our goal to work with customers to help them keep their accounts in good standing and avoid late charges and service interruptions. We also offer a variety of billing programs designed to fit their budget and payment preferences, such as Pick A Due Date and Level Billing.


Providing innovative tools and programs is part of our “Bright Future” commitment to improve customer service. If you would like to receive more information about services that maximize convenience, cost savings and peace of mind, please contact CPU at 662-627-8499 or info@cdpu.net.
