EWEB's Budget Billing program helps you balance the seasonal highs and lows to make your payments predictable
each month. The amount of your EWEB bill remains constant throughout the year, making it easier to budget
your household expenses.
We figure an average payment based on past usage. That average becomes your monthly payment. In order to participate in budget billing
you must have at least 12 months of billing history at the address associated with your account.
You'll still know exactly how much water and electricity you're using because your bill will show
both your actual usage and your Budget Billing amount.
After 12 months on the plan, we will review your Budget Billing account. If your actual use was more than
was predicted by your average, you will
receive a "true up" statement that will include charges for actual use. If your actual use was less than was
predicted, EWEB will automatically roll your plan over and adjust your average payment.
On an annual basis, EWEB does a "true up" to evaluate Budget Billing accounts and determine whether average payments
EWEB residential customers with a zero balance and a minimum of 12 months of billing history can enroll in the Budget
Billing program. There is no cost to participate.
The sign-up period for the plan begins after you receive your April bill statement, and continues
through the end of June. Call EWEB Customer Services at (541) 685-7000 to enroll for Budget Billing or for more information.
