Starting in June, 2015, CVEC is converting to a Levelized Budget Billing Plan that will calculate a rolling average each month. The average will be based on the usage in the current month and previous eleven months. This will eliminate the peaks and troughs, smoothing out or levelizing the budget bill payment each month with a fluctuation of only a few dollars.
Please be advised that your budget amount will be based on the history of the location and the usage of the previous owner/tenant. However, your actual usage will start being using in the average after your first month of usage.
Best of all, a Levelized Budget Plan is constantly adjusting so there is no settle-up month when extra money might be owed.
