Equal Payment Plan

The Virginia Department of Public Utilities offers an Equal Payment Plan to help customers even out their monthly utility bills.  During April of each year, you can sign up for this Plan.

The Equal Payment Plan will average your bills based on prior usage for the previous twelve (12) month period – (i.e. April 1, 2008 through March 31, 2009).

  • The first Equal Payment amount will be due in June.
  • The last payment of the Plan Year will be due in May and will be for any remaining balance due.

Your bill will show:
