Budget billing, from Cuivre River Electric Cooperative, helps you avoid seasonal highs and lows with an even monthly payment. When you enroll in Budget Billing, your budget amount is figured from your previous 12 months use plus a small percentage to allow for seasonal temperatures. You will pay this amount for the next 11 months. The 12th month a new budget average will be figured from your previous 12 months use plus any remaining balance will be carried over.

The only time you have to reconcile your account is when you leave the Cuivre River Electric Cooperative system, or when you decide you no longer want to participate in the Cuivre River Electric Cooperative Budget Billing Plan.


Q. How Do I Qualify For Budget Billing?

A. You can participate in Budget Billing if you meet the following simple requirements:

Q. How Much Does it Cost to Participate?
