Who May Participate: Any City of Tallahassee Utilities Customer
How to Get Started: You must have been a residential utility customer at the same location for at least the past 6 months. To take full advantage of the program, we ask that you participate in Budget Billing for at least one year. Call Utility Customer Operations at 891.4YOU (4968).
The City Of Tallahassee Utilities offers an innovative program that allows you to have a level amount in your monthly utility bill. By averaging your bill and flattening out the peaks and valleys, you have a consistent bill for your utility services.
We total your past twelve (12) months of utility usage (billed amounts) and divide by twelve (12) to find your average monthly bill. To this average, 10% is added to arrive at a figure that you will be billed throughout the next year. The 10% addition protects you from significantly underpaying bills if your usage increases during colder winter or warmer summer weather.
Every twelve months, we will automatically review your account to determine the difference between your actual utility bills and your budget billed amounts. This difference will then be used to compute next year's bill. Any amount of underpayment or overpayment is rolled into the new budget billing amount.
