Manage Your Budget with the Budget Billing Plan

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) makes budgeting easier by evenly distributing your natural gas charges over the course of 11 months from September to July.

Here’s what to expect:

  • September

Every September your BBP amount is set based on your previous year’s gas use, anticipated natural gas rates and weather impacts for the year.

  • February or March

A mid year review is conducted to ensure you are billed for your actual consumption.

  • July

You will be billed your final BBP installment which may be either a debit or credit amount. This amount is the difference between the amount you were billed through the BBP installments over the course of the plan and the actual gas you used.

  • August

You will only be billed for what you use that month. Your myEnbridge profile will show that you aren’t on BBP as you are only being billed for what you use this month. Not to worry, in September it will show that you are back on BBP.

  • September

Your BBP plan automatically starts back up.
