Option 4 – Setup 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. To qualify for this program, we need at least 12 months of utility history at your current residence and your balance must be current. Your budget payment is due by the due date on your bill. If you’re interested in this option, please fill out the form or contact us at (605)882-6233.
