Learn How to Manage Your Energy with SmartHub

SmartHub is a FREE app that allows you to access your Poudre Valley REA account information and energy use through almost any mobile device, including iOS and Android smart phones and tablets. In SmartHub, you can actually drill down to a specific day and see when your electricity use spiked, causing an increase in your electric bill. If you have a high bill concern, we can walk you through SmartHub and help you learn how to manage your energy. In SmartHub, you can also pay your bill and report an outage. Sign up or log in here.
