How it works


Budget Billing is a convenient option that helps you predict your monthly energy bill. It will balance the highs and lows of your monthly bills, so you pay about the same amount each month.

We will look at your recent energy bills and average them to determine your monthly Budget Billing payment. Your payment can change slightly based on your actual energy usage and costs but not once more than once a quarter.

The difference between your Budget Billing payments and the actual cost of your usage over time is called your settle-up balance. You can find your settle-up balance (debit or credit) on your monthly bill.

For example, if your Budget Billing amount is $100, but your actual charges for the month are $75, you’d build up a credit. If your Budget Billing amount is $100 and your actual charges are $125, you’d build up a debit. Either way you’d continue to pay your Budget Billing amount of $100. Over time, if the debit or credit get too large, your payment may be adjusted.

If you want to find out what your Budget Billing amount would be, you can log in to your account or call us at 602-371-3694 or (866-993-1377).

Frequently asked questions

PlaceHolder

After we look at your recent energy bills, we'll average them to determine your monthly Budget Billing payment. Having three months or more of billing history will help us calculate a more accurate monthly payment.

PlaceHolder

If your energy usage pattern changes over time, your payment may need to be adjusted higher or lower to cover the cost of your actual usage, but not more than once a quarter. Changes that can affect your usage could be attributed to weather or even major changes in energy usage like a new pool or older A/C unit.

PlaceHolder

The difference between your Budget Billing payments and the actual cost of your usage over time is called your settle-up balance. You can find both your actual cost of usage and you settle-up balance (debit or credit) on your monthly bill. If you decide to unenroll in Budget Billing, any debit balance will be due on your next bill or any credit balance will be applied to your account.

PlaceHolder

Not necessarily, if your actual bills become higher than your Budget Billing payments, you could build a settle-up debit balance. If the debit balance gets too large, that’s when your average monthly payment, or Budget Billing amount, will be increased. This will not occur more than once a quarter.

PlaceHolder

No. The benefit of Budget Billing is even payments throughout the year. The credit you have now will be used to offset the typically higher amount you are billed in the summer months.

PlaceHolder

Your account will incur the usual late fee. After three late payments in a 12-month period, you will be unenrolled in Budget Billing and your account will be settled up. Any settle-up debit balance will become due on your next bill, or any credit balance will be applied to your account.

PlaceHolder

Budget Billing is not a rate plan. It’s a convenient billing program that averages your past energy bills so you pay about the same amount year-round for your energy use. To keep your Budget Billing payment from changing, you can monitor your actual usage and costs through your monthly bills or your aps.com account.
