It is ideally suited to help you balance your household expenses. Instead of paying larger natural gas bills during peak heating periods, total service costs are spread evenly over a twelve-month period. Your anticipated gas usage for the next year is determined from past records and then divided Into 12 equal payments. Any difference in the total amount that you actually used during the year is then added to or subtracted from your bill in July.
