Budget Bill Program
Equalized monthly payments are offered to customers electing to be billed under the Budget Bill Program. Customers must sign up for the option for a period of one year.
The Budget Bill Program runs from January through November. A contingency factor will be added to the average twelve-month usage to account for any fluctuation in customer usage or increase in the fuel charge adjustment. The customer will be billed a set amount with the “Balance Due” portion of the bill reflecting the running true-up balance. Budget Bill Program customers are subject to the terms of a Prompt Payment Discount.
At the end of the eleven-month period, the account will be trued-up. Any positive balance will be paid by the customer to the Department, or any credit balance, at the customer’s choice, will be paid to the customer by the Department or credited to the customer’s next billing.
