Will I still be able to receive budget billing (Equal Payment Plan)?

The Village requires that the awarded SEA R-GEA program supplier provide budget billing for their power supply charges to those customers that currently have such arrangements with PSE&G. PSE&G will continue to bill a levelized amount each month for delivery service, and the awarded supplier will also bill a levelized amount each month (through the PSE&G bill) for power supply. Because the selected supplier’s contract price for power supply is lower than the PSE&G price for power supply, your total monthly budget amount (sum of monthly PSE&G delivery service budget amount and awarded supplier’s budget amount for power supply) should be reduced.  You may experience a “true-up” on your bill from PSE&G prior to enrollment in order to bring your current budget bill balance with PSE&G to zero, and then again at the end of the program to bring your current budget bill balance with the SEA R-GEA supplier to zero.  The SEA R-GEA supplier may also implement a ‘true-up’ of your budget amount during the contract term if it appears that your actual usage levels have been varying significantly from the historical amount of usage used to set-up your budget payment, in order to avoid the need for a larger true-up at the end of the contract.  

If you do not currently have budget billing with PSE&G but wish to receive an Equal Payment Plan from the awarded supplier for their power supply charges, you will be able to contact the awarded SEA R-GEA supplier and request that they establish this service for you.

Budget billing with PSE&G’s distribution portion of the bill and the awarded third-party supplier’s supply portion of the bill can be complicated. If you are to experience trouble with your budget billing, you may contact PSE&G, the winning supplier, or Gabel Associates for assistance.
