Keep your bills on the level with our 预算帐单 program!
预算帐单 is a voluntary program that eases the highs 和 lows of your monthly bills. Instead of paying your actual energy costs each month, which can fluctuate, you pay an average amount, based on your energy use from the previous 12 months.
The difference between the billed amount 和 the actual amount of energy used is called a "deferred amount." Please note that 预算帐单 is not a discount program. The deferred amount is included in the annual average energy costs. As a 预算帐单 customer, we will continue to read your meter each month, so you can see your actual usage 和 cost, along with your deferred amount.
Each year on your enrollment anniversary, 和 periodically at other times, we will review your account to determine if your 预算帐单 amount needs to be adjusted. We will notify you of any adjustments before your bill changes.
