Variable Budget Billing is calculated by taking an average of the previous 12 months of electricity billing. Bills then adjust every month but always based on the preceding 12-month average, which allows members to have a more consistently priced bill even during high-energy-consumption seasons. By reducing the variation in monthly bills, members can more accurately budget each month. This is perfect for members who want to smooth out the peaks and valleys in billing. The option does fluctuate slightly each month to account for energy consumption.

Variable Budget Billing is only available for residential members. To learn more or find out if you qualify, contact MTE at 877-777-9020, through a local area office, or our contact form.
