Budget Billing
Budget BillingThe budget billing program can make it easier for you to plan your utility expenses. The budget billing program allows you to pay the same amount each month for eleven months. The budget amount is based on your average of the last twelve months bills. The twelfth month is the budget year-end or catch up month.

This is where you pay the difference in what was actually billed and what you paid. This amount could be more or less than your budget amount. The company will review and adjust the budget amount based on your usage and if there are any rate increases.

If there are more than two consecutive late payments, you will be removed from the budget program.

Contact our office if you would like more information about the budget billing program.
