Budget Billing

Want to pay the same amount each month?

The Budget Billing program is based on the previous year’s average kilowatt usage and will be reevaluated every six months. In the event the monthly budget amount is adjusted, members will receive notice of their new Budget Billing amount in June.

Payment of the monthly budget amount is required by the due date on your monthly billing statement. Failure to pay the budget amount may result in penalties, termination of service and/or removal from the Budget Billing program.
