Equal Monthly Payment Plan
Make budgeting easier with the Equal Monthly Payment Plan (EMPP).
Most households spend the most money on natural gas during the three coldest months of the year while in the summer, they spend the least. EMPP spreads your yearly natural gas costs into monthly payments to avoid fluctuating bills with the seasons, making it easier on your budget.
We take your gas use history, expected gas rates and weather forecasts to estimate your yearly gas use. We then divide your estimated yearly gas use into 12 installment payments. Your bill every month is your installment payment as well as any Charges from other Companies.
We’ll review your plan to make sure you’re on track and adjust your installment amount if needed. Throughout the year your monthly installment payments are applied against your gas use and at the end of your plan the EMPP balance should be nearing $0. While we do our best to ensure your gas charges and EMPP installment match closely, any cost difference will appear on your end of plan bill.
