Power beyond payments.
SmartHub is so much more than a payment portal. It’s a powerful interface that puts your entire account and its history at your fingertips. Use SmartHub to track, analyze, and understand how you’re using electricity, how it affects your bill, and monitor costs and inefficiency.
With SmartHub, you can compare past electricity use, billing totals, and historical weather at a glance, and even use energy markers to see how changes—such as a new large appliance or programmable thermostat—influence your use.
Ready to get started? Once you’ve set up your Farmers EC account online, you can download the app to your Apple or Android device and put power beyond payments in the palm of your hand.

SmartHub is the FREE desktop interface and mobile app that helps make monitoring and managing your account easier, with secure access via your smart phone or tablet. Use SmartHub to take charge of your energy use—so you can reduce your costs, reduce your bill, and reduce your hassles!
