Budget Billing

Manage your monthly utility bill amounts using the City of Mesa's Budget Payment Plan.  The Budget Payment Plan will help balance seasonal highs and lows of your utility bill while your monthly payment remains the same each month. 

How it Works

The City of Mesa calculates your budget payment amount by taking the total of your annual energy costs for the previous 12 months, divides the total by 12, and adds an energy variance percentage.  The purpose of the Budget Payment Plan is to establish a credit balance during the lower energy use months that will apply toward those months with higher energy use.  The City of Mesa will review your account periodically and can make adjustments to your budget payment amount if there is a significant change in your utility usage.

The City of Mesa offers 2 Budget Payment Plans:
