Want to level out the highs and lows of seasonal bills and make your natural gas bill more predictable? Try Budget Billing.
How it Works
The Budget Billing program runs from August through June. Enrollment is online and available from May 1st to July 31st each year.
To establish your Budget Billing amount, ENSTAR estimates your gas charges based on the last three calendar years of consumption and divides this amount into 11 equal bills.
Each month from August through June, your ENSTAR bill will be the Budget Billing amount. In addition, you will also be able to see the difference between your actual charges and what you have paid to date.
July is the “settle up” month for Budget Billing. On the July bill, ENSTAR takes the actual charges for the plan year and subtracts your total payments. If you used less gas than estimated, a credit will be applied to your July bill. If you used more gas, you will be charged the difference.
