How MGE determines my monthly payment

  • We estimate your annual energy costs for the upcoming year based on your previous bills and expected changes in energy costs.
  • The estimated annual amount is divided evenly over 11 months.
  • At six months, we review your account to ensure your payment reflects your actual energy use.
  • On the 12th month of your plan, we bill or credit the difference between your actual energy costs and what you paid during the year.
