Budget Billing: You pay the same amount every month. The amount due is the average of 12 monthly bills. Once per calendar year, in your true-up month, you will settle up with a credit if you used less than the estimated amount of electricity, or a balance due if you used more. We will periodically evaluate the account and may apply a one-time adjustment to keep you from having an excessive settlement amount.
Average Billing: Your bill will reflect the average of your most recent 12-monthly billing amounts, rounded to the nearest $5 increment. The amount due may fluctuate month-to-month based on your 12-month rolling average use of electricity. No settlement month, the 12-months just continues forward.
