Budget Billing

Depending on the time of year, weather can cause your electric usage – and your power bill – to change dramatically. Budget Billing is a free service that eliminates those extreme peaks by leveling out your payment, so you pay roughly the same amount year-round.

Budget Billing



How it works

We look at your previous electricity usage and average the highs and lows of your bills to give you an average price to pay each month.* Then we recalculate your Budget Billing amount monthly to make sure your average usage has not changed significantly. If there is a change, we adjust your next monthly Budget Billing amount. To make sure you are aware of this change, we will let you know this new amount the month before we start billing you. You pay the same amount in the end, but with Budget Billing, it’s more predictable.
