During this past cold winter, many customers were surprised by spikes in their electric usage that were reflected on their bills. One way to avoid that is to sign up for Budget Billing.
What is budget billing? It is a calculation of the average of your bills for the past 12 months. Based on your usage last year, this average would be your monthly bill for the year. This lets you know how much you can expect to pay each month - No surprises!
The budget billing year begins in June and runs through May. Enrollment for this year begins in April. The deadline to enroll for budget billing is May 9 for Cycle 1 customers and May 24 for Cycle 2 customers.
May is the reconciliation month for existing budget customers. These customers who have an outstanding balance will need to pay in full on or before their May due date.
