By averaging the seasonal ups and downs of your energy usage, Budget Billing helps you budget your monthly expenses and pay the same amount each month.
Budget Billing is a 12 month plan consisting of 11 equal payments and a 12th, or final settlement payment, which is adjusted up or down depending on your actual usage. You are only billed for the electricity you use. Your Budget Billing monthly payment is estimated based on your past electric usage, so you must have at least six months of usage history with United Power before you are eligible for this program. Combine Budget Billing service with all of our convenient payment options.
To sign up for Budget Billing, call United Power Member Services at 303-637-1300.
Your electric service can be disconnected if your payment isn’t received by the due date. United Power understands that circumstances sometimes prevent you from paying your bill in full. In the event you cannot make your payment, we’ll work with you to arrange a temporary payment schedule. Please note that payment arrangements are made on an individual basis.
If you can’t make your payment this month, please contact United Power at 303-637-1300.
