Budget Billing

You can't always predict the highs and lows of Midwest weather, but there is a way to help average out your monthly bill. 

Your energy usage varies throughout the year, creating bills that can be higher or lower than expected. But when you know what to expect on each bill, you can comfortably budget and keep your account current. It's not a discount plan — you're responsible for the energy you use — but we help you keep payments level and consistent throughout the year.

How it works 

  • Your monthly budget billing amount is established using the average of your last 12 bills (or based on similar customers if you don't have 12 months of service history).
  • Each statement will show you actual charges along with the budget billing amount you'll pay.
  • Your bill is adjusted monthly to reflect average usage; so although it can vary, it will stay within a 10% consistency from month to month.
  • Continue monitoring the actual account balance on your bill. Your average will grow only if your usage constantly increases, which can result from things like adding a large appliance.
