Set up a Budget Payment Plan to pay the same amount each month

The Budget Payment Plan enables you to divide your bill into equal payments and pay the same amount each month.  The plan is helpful for budgeting purposes and helps to smooth out the amount due when monthly bills fluctuate with the weather.  You still pay for only the electricity you use, but at a set amount each month.

Requirements to enroll on the Budget Payment Plan:

  • The account must be at zero balance.
  • To ensure an accurate payment amount, we ask that you have lived at your home for at least 6 months prior to enrolling.

Calculations and Review of the Budget Payment Amount:

  1. Several factors are evaluated during the calculation process.
  2. First, the average kWh usage during the previous twelve months is multiplied by the current electric rate. 
  3. Second, the account balance, either a debit or credit, is factored into the recalculation.  Finally, any city taxes, discounts, Helping Hands or Green Power amounts are also factored in to establish the new payment amount.
  4. Budget Payment amounts are recalculated at least once per year during the anniversary month when you signed up for the plan.  Additionally, if significant changes occur in your monthly usage, your Budget Payment amount may be recalculated and adjusted prior to the anniversary date.
