Fixed Budget Billing allows members to pay fixed amounts each month calculated on their previous 12-month consumption. No matter your energy consumption, you’ll be charged the same amount on your monthly bill. Once a year, your account will be “settled up” and either a credit issued (if you’ve over-paid) or an adjustment added (if you’ve underpaid) based on actual use the previous 12 months. It's another convenient billing option for members, especially those who want a consistent monthly payment. Don’t forget that on an annual basis, you’re required to settle the amount of unused or overused energy consumption.

This option is only available for residential members. To learn more about how to sign up or if you qualify, contact MTE at 877-777-9020, a local area office, or through our contact form.

Traditional Billing

Traditional billing is how members have paid for electricity for more than 80 years. At the end of your billing cycle, you pay for the energy consumed. This is great for those who aren't looking for a change and want to simply pay for what they use.
