3. Budget Billing

Most of us experience fluctuations in our monthly utility costs. Typically, utility costs are higher in the winter and lower in the summer. To even out these costs and help make the monthly payments more predictable, we offer a budget billing program. Under this program, we establish a set payment each month. We review your account annually to ensure the budget amount is adequate - so you don't pay too much or too little.
