ED3 Programs


Level Payment Plan or
Budget Payment Plan

Electrical District No. 3 offers two Programs to help manage your electric bill. The Level Payment Plan and Budget Payment Plan.

Level Payment Plan (LPP)

LPP - is a no fee Program that averages the most recent twelve (12) months of account history. Each month your power bill will be a different amount and will vary from month to month.

Budget Payment Plan (BPP)

BPP - is a no fee Program that balances the seasonal highs and lows of your electric bill to make your payment more predictable each month. It can make household budgeting easier. If your usage remains similar to the past, the amount of your ED3 bill will remain constant each month all year long.

Level Or Budget Payment Plan Application

RESIDENTIAL / SMALL GENERAL SERVICE


HOW PROGRAMS WORK

ED3 uses your annual energy usage for the previous year with the current rate to calculate your monthly payment amount.

Any changes in District rates will be reflected in your monthly payment amount.

Your account will continue to be charged for the actual amount of energy used and the monthly payment amount will be adjusted quarterly to continue to more evenly spread the costs of your power usage.

Quarterly reviews will be done in January, April, July and October. For Budget Plans

Account reconciliation will take place each year in October and upon closing of the account. For Budget Plans

Monthly statements will continue to be sent to you so you can monitor your energy usage.

You will remain responsible for the costs of your actual usage and this plan will spread these costs throughout the year.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

Your account must be paid up to date and you can enroll in either Program at any time of year.

No delinquent account balances currently on account or returned check payments within the last twelve (12) months.

There cannot be any interruptions to your service due to non-payment.

Customer cannot be on any current payment plan (i.e., assistance with delinquent amounts).

Full payment must be received on time every month. Re-occurring Payment Method Suggested.

Discontinuation policies will remain the same as other standard residential services, and if late payments become re-occurring, the District may remove the customer from either Payment Plan Program.

PRE-PAID METERING PROGRAM
PROGRAM REVIEW & APPLICATION


TERMS & CONDITIONS

Residential customers may elect to pre-pay for their electricity usage through the PPM Program with the exception of customers who have on-site solar generation.

For new customers, the initial Service Establishment Fee for account set up and credit check will apply. Customer must agree to start their PPM account with a minimum balance of fifty dollars ($50.00). A customer who has an existing ED3 account will be expected to satisfy that account to a zero dollar ($0.00) balance and also provide a minimum pre-paid balance of fifty dollars ($50.00) before their PPM account can be set up.

It is understood by the customer that once their PPM account reaches a zero dollar ($0.00) balance, the energy provided to the Service Address will be disconnected immediately. It is further understood that for customers to have their PPM account reconnected, a minimum balance of fifty dollars ($50.00) must be pre-paid for future usage. By electing to participate in the PPM Program, customers understand that there will be daily charges for their usage and their PPM account may be subject to a Minimum Bill Charge.

SECURITY DEPOSITS

Participation in the PPM Program does not require a Security Deposit to be held on the customer’s PPM account. Deposits that are held on active accounts will be applied to the current account balance with any remainder applied as pre-payment on the PPM account. When the customer is no longer participating in the PPM Program, either by customer choice or ED3’s choice, and wants to establish another type of ED3 account, the customer must satisfy all Deposit and credit requirements as per ED3 policies. If the customer had a Deposit on file before going onto the PPM Program, an equal or greater Deposit will be required to establish another type of account. The Deposit requirement and amount will be determined based on the customer’s status and history at the time of exit from the PPM account.

Special Considerations

If your Phone Provider is not in the list of choices please contact a CSR at (520) 424-9021, thank you.
