Winter months can put a strain on many pocketbooks, especially when it comes to paying utility bills. If you worry about how to pay for increased energy bills in the winter, Traverse Electric's budget billing plan might help soften the blow.
Budget billing helps level out your monthly spending and helps your household budget. You don't have to wait until the bill comes in the mail since you know exactly how much it will be each month. If you enter into a budget billing payment plan with Traverse Electric, your average kilowatt hour use over a twelve month period is calculated and an average payment amount is established for you. This is the amount you pay each month no matter what you have used. The idea is to start in the Spring after the heating season so that enough credit is on your account before the high usage winter months arrive. You will continue to receive your monthly statement in the mail and payment of your budgeted amount is still required by the due date each month to avoid penalties.
To get started with budget billing, just call our office at 320.563.8616 or 1.800.927.5443 and ask about budget billing. Enrollment takes place in April so don't delay.
