How MGE determines my monthly payment
- We estimate your annual energy costs for the upcoming year based on your monthly costs over the previous 12 months.
- We multiply your estimated costs by 10% (to account for expected changes in energy costs) to determine your monthly payment.
- Your monthly amount will stay the same for a minimum of six months. After six months, we will review your usage on a monthly basis.
- If your energy usage has changed, we will provide you with a new budget amount for a six-month time period. If not, you will continue to be billed the same budget amount and your usage will be reviewed monthly until your energy use changes.
