Budget billing is a program that allows you to pay the same amount each month on your electric bill. The cooperative calculates your electric bill on an 11-month basis, and you pay the same amount each month, eliminating fluctuations caused by cold weather. The 12th month is an adjustment month. If you paid more for electricity in the previous 11 months than you used, you get a credit and your monthly budget billing amount is adjusted downward. If you used more electricity in the 11 months than you paid for, then your budget billing amount is adjusted upwards.
Budget billing is free. Simply call the cooperative at 228-2202 or 1-800-247-1197 to find out more about it. An estimated monthly budget billing amount can be sent to you at your request. You then decide if you want to go on budget billing.
