Imagine the ease you'll enjoy when planning your budget without worrying about drastic changes in your bill, even in the very cold of winter or hot months of summer. When levelizing the amount over the year, you pay for slightly more power than is actually used during milder weather. During the winter and summer months you pay for slightly less power than you are using.
It's a FREE service and here's how it works. Each month, CBEC will average your actual billing for the current month with the previous 11 months. Your bill will vary slightly from month to month, but this rolling average evens out extreme highs and lows.
You'll continue to receive a monthly bill. The bill will show your kilowatt-hour consumption and the levelized bill amount that is due. It must be paid just the same as a regular bill on or before the late payment date.
