The Budget Plan provides a convenient way to pay your natural gas bill every month. It's also a great payment option for customers who like to plan ahead.

How it Works
We calculate your monthly payment by estimating your natural gas use and gas prices for the next 12 months. We also take into account your current account balance. This total is then divided by 12 to arrive at your monthly Budget Plan payment amount.
During the summer months, your Budget Plan payment amount will typically be higher than your actual bill. Paying this higher amount allows you to build up a credit balance, which is then used to offset higher winter bills. On the other hand, there may be months when the amount billed to your account is higher than the payments you've made.
Reevaluating Your Budget Plan Payment
Periodically, we will reevaluate your Budget Plan payment amount. We do this to determine if your payment amount is in line with your actual usage and future gas costs. If an adjustment is needed (either up or down), it is automatically made and will appear on your next bill statement. At the time of reevaluation, any debit or credit will be taken into account when we calculate your new monthly Budget Plan payment.
