By making your monthly bills more predictable, BudgetWise Billing helps to minimize spikes in your amount due during high-demand energy months. This helps you avoid late payments, collection calls and negative credit reporting.

We take the amount of energy usage at your current address for the last 12 months and use the average to determine your monthly budget plan amount.
Calendar quarter
Quarterly Review
Every three months you'll receive a quarterly review notification. We may adjust your budget amount up or down to avoid a large under or overpayment at the end of 12 months.
