Balanced Payment Plan

For Residential Accounts

The Balanced Payment Plan (BPP) makes all your electric bills approximately the same dollar amount. BPP averages your current month’s bill with your bills for the previous 11 months. This can help smooth out high summer bills. It’s also a great plan for people on fixed incomes.

To join, you must be a MID residential customer for at least 12 consecutive months and your account balance must be 0 at the time you join. (Residential customers only)

Balance due can fluctuate based on:

  1. Your last 12 months of billing history
  2. Any deferred account balance from previous year
  3. The percentage of any rate increase
