The Budget Bill program allows a residential or non-residential customer to pay his or her Georgia Power bill at a similar amount each month.
Subject to other applicable laws and regulations, your participation in the Budget Bill rate plan will continue automatically until you withdraw or cease to be eligible for the plan.
All residential or non-residential customers with four or less active electric service points who have been billed for twelve months at the location, and have good credit standing with Georgia Power are eligible for Budget Bill, provided their average monthly bill does not exceed $5,000.00. If your Budget Bill account becomes delinquent, Georgia Power has the option of removing you from the Budget Billing plan. If at that time the account has a deferred balance, that balance will become due.
On a Budget Bill account anniversary, the Budget Bill settlement process will determine what to do with any deferred balance. The default action is to rollover any deferred balance into the next plan year. The customer’s Budget Bill amount will be increased or decreased by 1/12th of the previous year’s deferred balance over the next 12 months.
If you move within Georgia Power’s service area, you can transfer any “difference” to your new bill. However, any past due balance must be paid or an agreement made before transferring service. If you are moving outside the Georgia Power service area we will apply any overpayment to your final bill, or add any unpaid final balance to your final bill.
