For instance, the warmer it is, the more your air conditioner will work, and the higher your monthly bill. If your account is on the Budget Plan, the account status will be displayed below the energy usage chart. This is where you can see what the actual balance is, and what it will be after the current month’s bill is paid.

10. Update Personal Information

Landlord/Tenant Agreement

This form authorizes Platte-Clay Electric Cooperative to revert electric service at the listed rental addresses to the property owner (landlord) between tenants. Signing up for this service will prevent service disconnection between property occupants. Electric bills incurred by the owner at any of their properties that are left unpaid and have become past due will be left to the discretion of Platte-Clay Electric Cooperative and may result in the removal of this agreement. Any unpaid balances on any of the owner’s accounts will need to be paid prior to any tenant connecting service at any of the owner’s properties.

Levelized (Budget) Billing

The hottest and coldest months of the year create the highest bills for members because our heating and cooling units are working harder and longer. Use Platte-Clay’s Levelized (budget) Billing to smooth out the energy costs.

Members who have had six months’ history of on-time payments and who have had service for 12 months at the same location qualify for levelized billing.

Platte-Clay will base the “levelized” energy charge based on the previous year’s service and divide that amount over 12 months. Your co-op will adjust the payment, either more or less, depending on the amount of energy used for that year and a new rate, if that applies. The adjustment will be in the same month that levelized service began.

The rate is the same as for other residential members. At disconnection, accounts will be trued to actual usage for the final bill.

To sign up for the Levelized Billing program, complete the form below, and a customer service representative will call to complete the details, or call the office during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
