Levelized billing is designed to help our customers avoid large fluctuations in their monthly electric bill. It keeps your electric bill predictable and helps you to accurately anticipate your monthly payment amount. With levelized billing, your monthly electric bill is a rolling average of your usage for the past 12 months. Because levelized billing uses a rolling average, your monthly bill will vary slightly each month. Levelized billing is ideal for customers who budget their household bills, and it is a great way to avoid unexpectedly large bills due to extreme hot or extreme cold temperatures.
In order to qualify for levelized billing, you must be a DES customer for 12 months at the same location and be current on your electric bill. Click here for our Levelized Billing application. For more information, contact our Bookkeeping Department at (615) 446-9051.
