Budget Billing is designed to eliminate the highs and lows in your
energy bills, so your bill remains stable from month to month.
We calculate your estimated yearly energy cost by looking at last year's
energy use and factoring in weather and price forecasts. Then we divide it into 12
equal payments. Every 6 months, your account is reviewed, and your payment
amount may be adjusted to more closely reflect your actual use. Your bill
for the 12th month will then include any difference between what you paid
and the actual cost of the energy you used throughout the year.
If you paid too much, we will apply a credit to your bill.
If you paid too little, the balance will be spread over the new Budget
