Balanced Billing

Budgeting is much easier when you know what to expect each month. With Balanced Billing for residential customers, you'll receive predictable energy bills based on your average energy usage. That means significant changes in the outside temperature won’t result in large spikes on your bill.

How it Works

  • We spread your annual energy usage into 12 convenient monthly payments.
  • You'll still pay for the exact amount of electricity that you used at the end of each year, but it's a balanced amount for 11 months.
  • On the 12th month, you will pay for that month’s energy usage, plus or minus the difference if your energy usage was higher or lower than average.

To determine your monthly payment amount, we take an average of your energy usage for the past year and bill it at the current residential rate. This allows you to level out your electricity costs for the one-year period ahead. If there is a change in your usage, your average bill amount will change slightly (up or down) each time we read your meter.
