PSC Encourages Consumers to Take Advantage of Budget Billing Plans

The Free Press WV

As cold weather approaches, the Public Service Commission of West Virginia encourages consumers to take advantage of budget billing and average monthly payment plans offered by utility companies.  Budget billing plans average total annual usage into more manageable monthly bills, eliminating sharp increases ratepayers experience during winter heating and summer cooling seasons.

To determine a budget billing plan, your electric or natural gas utility company will review your usage history, evaluate anticipated energy prices and establish an average monthly billing amount.  Most plans are reevaluated and adjusted annually.

The specifics of budget billing plans vary between utility companies.  Contact your utility providers to ask about the budget periods and plans they offer.
