Your changes will be averaged for a twelve month period, and that amount will be used for your Level Billing amount each month. Your bill will reflect the Level Billing Amount, the Actual Charges for the period, and the Total Balance as of the date of the bill. Periodically, throughout the year your Level Billed amount will be reviewed to prevent a large balance due on your November reconciliation. Adjustments may be necessary if:
Your Billing rate changes.
You make changes to your account.
Your actual usage changes significantly.
At the beginning of November, your account will be reconciled. The Level Billing Reconciled Account will show on your November bill. You will need to pay any remaining balance. At the beginning of December we will evaluate your account and calculate new Level Billing amounts if necessary.
