Electricity usage is seldom uniform throughout the year. On the Oregon Coast, it’s not unusual to use two or three times as much electricity in a cold winter month as one would in the middle of summer. That means the amount of your electric bill can vary greatly during the year. Budget Billing can minimize large electric bills during the winter heating season by building up a credit balance during the warmer months to offset higher bills in winter.
Budget Billing is great for customers who want to know how much their monthly electric bill will be by averaging the previous year’s consumption, and establishing a regular monthly payment amount. It’s especially helpful for customers who are on a fixed income or like to budget for their monthly bill payments.
If you’ve been in your home for twelve months or more, you may qualify for Budget Billing. To see if you qualify, or to sign up, please call us at 877-265-3211.
New sign-ups for Budget Billing may only be done between April 1 and June 30.
