    Your meter reading for this month and last month. The difference between the two is the amount of power you used (in kilowatt hours).

    This section also tells you when an actual read of your meter or an estimate is being used.

    We calculate how much you will pay for the power you used last month in this section.

    Customers on equalized payments pay a set amount toward their power bill all year and have a settle-up bill at the end to match what they paid for power with their use.

    Your “Balance forward” from month to month is the unbilled/overbilled amount of power used in your home. “Current Installment Amount” is what you’re paying each month, and “Actual use, current bill” is the amount you owe this month only. The difference between your actual use and balance to be billed is the amount that will be transferred to the balance forward on your next bill.

    If you notice that you’re building up a carry-forward balance, give us a call. We can increase your billing amount to avoid a high settle-up bill at the end of the year.

Residential

    Farms
    You can choose to receive either three quarterly estimated bills and one annual read bill or 11 monthly estimated bills and one annual read bill.

    Your monthly electricity use is estimated based on historical use. Any difference between your actual power use and estimated billing will appear on your annual bill.

    Acreages
    Customers on acreages are billed monthly. You receive a monthly rural residential bill and have the same payment options as all residential customers.
