We can't control the weather, but Budget Billing can help smooth out the ups and downs of your utility bill. By budgeting your bill, you will pay the same amount each month. In the end you will still pay the same, but the amount you pay each month will remain fixed. Budget Billing payments are determined for your account and are not transferable.
Your meter will continue to be read on the last day of the month. You will continue to receive a monthly bill as you have in the past. The bill will indicate current consumption and your correct budget billing monthly payment. Your monthly bill will also indicate the current budget bill balance. You must meet specific qualifications in order to be on our Budget Billing Program.
- The account must be billed under a residential rate class.
- The consumer must have had active service at the location for the past 12 months.
- The account must be paid in full before converting to budget billing.
Your monthly budget billing will be based on your 12 month average historical usage. This budget bill amount will be charged for 11 months. The 12th month will be your true-up billing, in which the actual amount you owe will be billed. Your budget billing will recalculate each year based on your new monthly average. You may cancel budget billing at anytime.
