Budget billing with your utility allows you to pay a consistent monthly amount throughout the year regardless of how much your utility costs were.
If you are serviced by Consolidated Edison, National Grid, RG&E, or Orange and Rockland and are enrolled in budget billing, our community solar program can still be beneficial for you. Their systems allow our solar credits to continue reducing your total costs monthly. For NYSEG customers, your enrollment with both programs will depend on your assigned solar farm, so please reach out for more information.
However, if you are serviced by Central Hudson or Orange & Rockland, and would like to join our community solar program, we would recommend discontinuing your budget billing plan. If not, you won't see immediate savings from solar credits on your monthly payments. Instead, you'll only see the benefits when your utility adjusts your account at the end of the budget billing period.
