Budget Billing is a voluntary program that eases the highs and lows of your monthly bills. Instead of paying your actual energy costs each month, which can fluctuate, you pay an average amount, based on your energy use from the previous 12 months.
The difference between the billed amount and the actual amount of energy used is called a "deferred amount." Please note that Budget Billing is not a discount program. The deferred amount is included in the annual average energy costs. As a Budget Billing customer, we will continue to read your meter each month, so you can see your actual usage and cost, along with your deferred amount.
Each year on your enrollment anniversary, and periodically at other times, we will review your account to determine if your Budget Billing amount needs to be adjusted. We will notify you of any adjustments before your bill changes.
