Level Pay for Residential Meters

Now is the time to think about signing up for level pay, a program that averages your 12 previous electric bills and creates a level payment amount for each month’s bill. Credit accumulates during summer months and offsets higher winter bills.

You must sign up for level pay in April. Payments begin in May. When high winter bills hit your mailbox, it is too late.

Call the office at (208) 679-2222 after the first week of April to find out what your level payment amount could be.


Members, remember that pumps were not deactivated last fall unless requested. If you requested a pump disconnect last fall, you need to request a connection when you are ready to use the pump this season.
