Your monthly equal payment amount is calculated using your yearly usage from the previous billing year. It is divided equally over a 12 month period.

If your account balance is higher than your monthly Equal Pay amount at the end of the December billing cycle the full balance must be paid by the January payment due date in order to remain eligible for the following calendar years Equal Pay Plan. If you have a credit balance on your account at the end of the December billing cycle you can allow the credit to roll into your following year equal pay calculation or contact the Utility Billing office regarding other options including having a refund issued to the account payer.
You may request to be removed from Equal Pay at any time by calling the Utility Billing department however, there may be a credit or a balance owing depending on the time of year. If there is a balance owing, you agree to pay that amount in full by the next bill due date. If you are late or miss one monthly payment, you will be removed from the program and will be subject to late and shut off fees associated with non-payment of your account. Once you are removed from the Equal Payment Plan you will not be allowed back on in that calendar year.
