Budget Billing

Budget Billing is a free service that makes balancing your budget easier by providing equal payments so you will know exactly how much you pay each month.

How It Works

  • Your payment is calculated on the average of the previous year’s utility charges multiplied by 1.10 (which accounts for any known increases in rates or supply costs).
  • You pay 11 months of equal payments with a settle-up on the 12th month. If you have used more energy or water than you paid, we will bill you the difference. If you’ve paid for more than you’ve used, we will issue you a check. Your future budget billing plan will be adjusted accordingly.
  • Your monthly bill will show your actual current charges, account balance, and your Budget Billing payment amount. You simply pay your Budget Billing amount each month.


  • You are a residential customer that has been at the same location for more than 12 months
  • You own your home.
  • Your account must have a zero balance prior to plan enrollment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I skip a payment if I have a credit balance?
A. No. You still have to make your monthly Budget Billing payment regardless of a credit balance.

Q. What if I pay late or miss a payment?
A. Budget Billing payments must be made by the due date to avoid being disconnected for non-payment and potentially being removed from Budget Billing. Your account will be subject to a 4% penalty, as applied to all other customer, if payment is not received by the due date.

A. No. Budget Billing is designed to help customers predetermine their monthly payment so you know how much to budget for each month.
