Levelized billing allows you to pay approximately the same amount on your electric bill each month. The amount you pay each month is based on an average of your actual monthly consumption for a one-year period. To qualify, you need to have had power at your current address for no less than 12 months.
To calculate your average monthly payment amount, we take the current month’s use and add it to the last 11 months of use. We then divide by 12 to arrive at your average monthly payment amount. Contact Coast Electric at 877-769-2372 to sign up.
Prepay Metering allows you to purchase energy when you need it. Just like you fill your car with gas when the tank gets low, or when you choose to. Prepay allows you to purchase power on a pay-as-you-go basis.
With budget billing, your energy costs are the same each month. We look at your previous year's energy use and average those costs. That average is what you pay each month. We recalculate your yearly use and costs each February and your bill will be adjusted up or down depending on your energy use patterns. To qualify, you need to have had power at your current address for no less than 12 months.
