Nobody likes a surprise when it comes to their electric bill. That's why we offer Levelized Billing.
Our Levelized Billing Plan is available to all residential customers who have a good payment record. The monthly levelized bill is a rolling average amount based on actual use for the current month and the previous eleven months.
The bill amount will vary slightly to reflect changes in monthly usage. The convenience of a level monthly payment allows you to better plan your monthly budget.
If you think a Levelized Billing Plan might be right for you, contact us, and a customer representative will be glad to assist you. 770-775-7857.
