For a typical customer, about 60 per cent of their natural gas use takes place in the three coldest months of the year. The budget billing plan (BBP) does not change your total annual gas costs, it distributes your charges fairly evenly over 11 months from September to July.
We estimate your gas charges for the coming year based on your previous use and forecasts. We then work to ensure your installments reflect expected charges as closely as possible. We also conduct a mid-plan review and where needed, update your installment amount. View our interactive bill for a breakdown of the BBP section on your bill.
Register in August to maximize the benefits of the plan. Once registered, your next bill should display the BBP information on the ‘Charges For Gas’ page of your bill for easy reference.
We encourage you to monitor your plan and to contact us with any questions. It is typical for BBP balances to fluctuate between a credit and an outstanding balance throughout the season. Through myEnbridge, you can review the BBP section on your previous bills to see how it tracked through the year.
Generally, a BBP balance will follow this trend:
Customers on BBP will automatically have their new plan start in September. Or, if you decide budget billing is not for you, you can cancel at any time.
