Central Hudson Adds Pay-By-Text Option for Customers
Central Hudson has added pay-by-text to the options it offers customers through its text messaging service. The new feature allows customers to pay the total balance due on their utility account by texting the command “PAY” to Central Hudson’s short code. The feature is available for all customers registered for the Utility’s text message service with a checking account on file, and is designed to offer customers an easy-to-use mobile payment option.
Central Hudson Gas & Electric is a regulated transmission and distribution utility serving approximately 300,000 electric and about 75,000 natural gas customers in eight counties of New York State’s Mid-Hudson River Valley in a 2,600 square-mile service territory extending from the suburbs of metropolitan New York City north to the capital district at Albany.
