You will then be directed to a secure payment website to finish the payment process.
You will only be able to view hydro E-bills for your online registered accounts that have the “paperless” billing option selected. Bills that are created and sent as “paper” bills, either before or after registering the account, will not be available for viewing, downloading or printing on the online portal. On the Billing 1 screen, if a “paperless” bill is available for download, there will be a download link in the eBill column 2.
No, signing up for hydroportal.nelson.ca will not change any of your current payment plans.
