In a continuing effort to provide a service to our residential members by preventing seasonal fluctuations in electric billing, Rayle EMC offers both Budget Billing and Levelized Billing to qualifying classes of members.

Both Budget Billing and Levelized Billing are initially based on your average energy use for the most recent 12 months; therefore, members who have been with Rayle EMC for at least 12 months and have a zero balance are eligible to participate in either program upon written request.

Budget Billing is a fixed amount each month, which does not vary. At the end of the year, the difference between the actual bills and the budget bill amounts will be applied to the following year’s budget bill amount when it is calculated.

Levelized Billing is re-averaged each month, using the past 12 months; therefore, the amount varies each month.  Accounts may be removed from Budget Billing or Levelized Billing if not paid in full by the due date of each month.
