Important Things to Know About FlatBill:

What is FlatBill?

Family Dwelling FlatBill is an optional residential rate plan available to qualified customers. This plan offers a contracted fixed bill amount for a 12-month period based on your previous year's history at your current location.

Your FlatBill amount includes additional charges to cover changes in usage, variations in weather conditions, and other factors that could affect the cost of providing electric service to you. This amount may be more than what you would pay under your existing rate plan. Overall, you’ll get a simple, predictable monthly bill with no surprises for a full year.

What are the benefits of FlatBill?

It's convenient and consistent. With FlatBill, you receive predictable-to-the-penny bills for 12 months.

You can budget like a boss. Knowing your monthly payment will help you budget your power bill better than ever before, so you can focus on other areas of your life that require financial attention.

It eliminates surprises. It accounts for any slight changes to your bill due to the season and changing weather patterns.

What happens if I go on FlatBill and want to switch back to my previous plan?

You can withdraw from the FlatBill plan at any time. If you choose to withdraw before the end of the 12-month agreement, you will pay any difference between the amount paid on the FlatBill plan and the amount that would have been paid on the standard residential rate. No refunds or bill credits will be provided if the amount paid on the FlatBill plan is greater than the amount you would have paid on the standard residential rate. 

How do I renew my Flatbill offer?

We will notify you of a new FlatBill offer at the end of the 12-month agreement, and you will automatically be re-enrolled in a new 12-month agreement unless you request otherwise within 30 days.

What are the eligibility requirements for FlatBill?
