Want to smooth out most of the fluctuation in the amount you pay for your monthly electric bill and not worry about a settle-up month? If so, sign up for Levelized Billing. You qualify if you have been a CEC residential customer for at least 12 months and have a good payment history.
Levelized billing prevents drastic changes in your bill, even during the coldest or hottest months of the year. A levelized bill averages the previous 11 monthly bills and the current month's bill for a service address. See below for examples of how levelized bills are calculated.
Because the levelized billing amount is recalculated each month based on a rolling average, the need to settle up balances annually is eliminated. Reconciliation of your account will be necessary only if you move or decide to stop participating in the program.
If CEC has been providing electricity to your service address for at least one year and your account is current, you are eligible to participate in levelized billing. We will simply calculate your levelized payment based on the average billing for your home. Call 757-242-6181 to sign up today.
To arrive at your levelized amount, CEC adds your current month's use to your previous 11 months, then divides the total by 12. It is then rounded to the nearest dollar.
