Budget Plan

Budget Billing Plan Available

Do your electric bills go up and down with the changing seasons? Would you prefer to pay approximately the same amount each month? If so, Guernsey-Muskingum may have a budget billing plan for you.

The Cooperative offers a budget billing plan called the levelized budget.

Levelized budget

The levelized budget does not result in exactly the same budget payment each month. The Cooperative adds the current month’s consumption to the previous eleven months usage and an average monthly kilowatt-hour figure is determined. This amount is used to calculate the budget billing amount for the month. This means that the budget amount is actually adjusted monthly, but usually remains within a few dollars of the previous month’s budget. The levelized budget amount may need to be adjusted periodically to prevent a large positive or negative balance from accumulating. The levelized budget can only be offered for accounts that have twelve months of billing history.

The benefit of a budget plan is to minimize or eliminate large swings in your bill that can be caused by the change of the seasons. If a budget plan appeals to you, and your billing account is current, just call the Member Accounting department on (740)826-7661 or 1-800-521-9879 and ask to be placed on budget billing. To remain on a budget plan, the budget amount billed must be paid in full each month.
