The variable budget billing program offered by North Central Electric Cooperative gives members a convenient way to plan their budget by payment leveling each month. This is an ideal program for consumers with an all-electric home where winter heating bills can be two or sometimes even three times higher than the spring and summer months.
The monthly budget amount is based on 12 months of consumption history. The budget amount could vary from month-to-month depending on the consumers monthly use. To be eligible for the variable budget program, consumers must have been at their current residence for at least one year and not have an outstanding balance.
Eligible members can enroll in this convenient billing program at any time during the year. Payments are due by the 15th of the month. Failure to make a budget payment will automatically take you off the budget billing program.
Contact a North Central Electric customer service representative and they will mail/e-mail you an authorized form, which includes an estimate of what the budget bill would be. Reminder: the budget amount could vary from month-to-month depending on the consumer's monthly use.
