Or mail in the pre-authorized payments form [PDF, 83 KB].

Equal payment plan

To make equal payments each month, you can set up an equal payment plan. The last 12 months of electricity use determines your monthly payment amount.

Each year, we compare the amount you've been billed with your actual use. The difference may result in a credit (if you’ve used less electricity than you've paid for) or additional charges (if you've been using more electricity than you've paid for). You can see how you're comparing on each bill.
