Omaha Public Power District officials say they are making changes to how electricity bills can be paid.
They said nearly 70 percent of all OPPD payments are made electronically, compared with fewer than 50 percent five years ago. And fewer customers are paying their bills at OPPD offices.
Among the changes:
» Cash payments will be accepted at more than 80 MoneyGram retail locations within OPPD’s service territory beginning Monday.
» On Jan. 4, offices at the Stockyard Plaza, 3319 L St., and the Bank of the West Building, 2950 Ames Ave., will move downtown to Energy Plaza, 444 S. 16th St.
» Self-service payment kiosks are in the works for Energy Plaza.
» A new service is coming soon that will allow payments via smartphones and tablets.
