High Bill Alerts - Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a High Bill Alert?

If the system projects that a participating customer is on track to receive a higher bill due to higher than usual usage, an alert is triggered. The customer then receives a High Bill Alert (HBA). This process allows customers to manage their usage before a bill is due.

The HBA features useful information on what time of day customers used the most electricity and what factors – such as weather or heavy appliance use – may have contributed to the higher usage. HBAs also feature personalized tips to promote energy efficiency.
