Q. What is SimplePay?
A. SimplePay is an easy way to help manage your electric bill. When you sign up for SimplePay, we’ll set a monthly payment amount that’s based on your electric bills over the past 12 months. That way you know what you’ll be paying each month — even before you open the envelope!
Q. How does being on SimplePay affect my bill?
A. SimplePay evens out your payments for electricity. You pay the same amount each month even when your usage goes up or down. On an annual basis, you’ll still pay the same amount, but without the month to month fluctuations. All of your account details will still be displayed on the bill each month.
