Average Payment Plan

You can't always predict the highs and lows of Midwest weather, but you can 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.

Average Payment Plan

    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)
    • The average is adjusted each month to reflect actual usage
    • Your amount due may vary slightly month to month
    • For example, your January bill will be the average of your energy costs from February last year through January this year
    • The ideal time to enroll is during the winter months when bill are typically lower because it gives you time to build up a credit to offset higher summer bills
    • Participation is free
