If you don’t like surprises, we may have the perfect plan for you. Budget Billing does just that – it levels your monthly bill so that you do not have those “peak and valley” bills.
Although Budget Billing helps you better budget for your electric bill, it does not guarantee a constant recurring monthly bill. It does not reduce your electric bill but will smooth out your charges and help you manage your electric bill.
Budget Billing recalculates your budget billing amount each month by averaging your current bill plus the previous 11 months’ bills. By doing so, this will help stabilize your payment amounts and ensures that you do not rack up a large running balance in the event that you experience several consecutive months of high usage. The program keeps a running balance of what you truly owe should you choose to cease participation in the Budget Billing program.
There is no charge for using Budget Billing. This is a service that we provide to our members to make it easier for you to budget your electric bill and enjoy the peace of mind that comes from planning ahead.
Customers can sign up for Budget Billing if they have at least one year of billing history, no more than two late payments, and no returned checks.
