Balanced Payments Plan

The Balanced Payment Plan provides a convenient method for CEC members to spread their electricity payments evenly throughout the year.


  • The Balanced Payment Plan is available for sign up year round.

Signup for Balanced Payment Plan


  • Plan applies to residential rate schedule accounts only.
  • To be eligible, a member’s account must have been established for at least 6 months and the account must have been paid in full each of those months.

How it works

  • The Balanced Payment Plan will be based on a 6 month or 12 month average of the applicant’s monthly bills.
  • When a CEC customer has less than a 12 month payment history, the Balanced Payment Plan will be based on the best available history, but in no case less than a 6 month history.
  • Members can choose to have their payments recalculated once a year or twice a year. Recalculations taking place once a year will occur in September and twice a year will occur in March and September.
