Your first bill will be delivered by email no later than 35 days after your service starts. Occasionally, first bills are delivered almost immediately after service begins, but it is always triggered when your TDU reads your meter.
If you think you missed it, check your spam folder or log in to your account to check your bill. You may also want to add to your Safe Senders list.

Your TDU reads the meter at your address each month and sends a report to us with your usage. We generate a bill immediately after receiving your usage report. Your due date is 16 days after your bill is issued. See next question.
Keep in mind that your due date may vary slightly from month to month. Even if your bill was due on the 15th last month, your bill could be due on a different day the following month.

As a convenience, we will attempt to draft your EZ Pay payment method the day before and the day of your due date. We will contact you via email if there is a problem with your payment before any late fees are assessed.

No. Your bill due date is determined by the date that your TDU reads your meter. We do not have control over when that happens.

Can I make more than one payment in a month?
Yes. You can make up to 5 manual payments a month by logging in to your account. If you make more than 5 manual payments in a single month you will be charged up to $6.95 for each additional payment.

If you use EZ Pay, pay online or by phone, it will be processed immediately upon receipt. Any other form of payment will result in additional processing time.

All customers are setup on our EZ Pay automatic billing system at enrollment, so you don’t have to worry about remembering your due date.

We do not email your actual bill to you. You’ll receive an email letting you know that your bill is ready to view online and how much is due.

No. You will receive an email every month stating how much is due and that your bill is ready to view online. It is your responsibility to either view the email or log in to our website to view your total amount due.
A late fee is only assessed if your card declines for any reason and we don’t receive your payment by the due date. To avoid late fees, it is your responsibility to update your payment information or make a manual payment before your bill is due.

We don’t email your actual bill to you. We’ll send a very basic email stating the amount due and that your bill is available to view online. Your full bill is accessible after logging in to your secure account.

If you insist on killing trees, we can certainly mail your bill to you. However, we may charge a one-time e-Docs Breakage Fee of up to $19.95 for not having e-Docs properly established on your account at the time of bill generation if your plan requires e-Docs. We strongly urge you to remain on e-Docs.

Your usage fluctuates each month, and you may not even realize that you used more power. Most high bills occur during the hot summer months or during unexpected winter freezes. It could also be a combination of things, such as running your appliances more often than usual, having company in from out of town, letting your kids control the thermostat, or leaving windows open for too long.
Fortunately, you can view your usage by month or even by week by logging into your account then clicking View Smart Usage from the 'Quick Pick Dashboard. You’ll notice right away if your electricity usage spikes or drops, and then you can adjust your usage going forward.

Honestly, your best bet is to stay on a term plan that offers a fixed rate.
The other obvious answer is to use less electricity. Keep your thermostat at a higher—yet comfortable—temperature during the summer; like 78 rather than 72. Your large appliances also use a lot of power, so try to start the dishwasher or dryer only when they’re full. Don’t forget to check for cracks or seals that are letting outside air in; you’ll want to patch those immediately.
