Budget Billing

Utility bills normally vary from month to month, depending on the amount of utility usage. Bills are usually highest in winter and summer during peak seasons or extreme temperatures. These fluctuations are difficult for customers to predict. Albany Utilities is offering an optional payment plan for our residential customers whereby utility bills will be the same each month. The Budget Billing Plan (BBP) will be based on the average of the previous 12 months history. For more information and an application simply click on the link below.
