Budget Assistant: Always On Alert
Stay On Budget & In Control
Managing your energy spending is simple with our free* and easy-to-use Budget Assistant tool. Just set a spending goal. We will track your costs online in close to real-time and send you alerts (email, phone or text) on how your projected bill compares to that goal. Prevent any high bill surprises by making changes before you receive your next bill. It’s that easy!
Two Ways to Make Budget Assistant Work for You
1. Stay on Top of Your Bill
Want to reduce your bill by 10%?
- Set your spending goal 10% less than your average bill and select to receive weekly updates.
- We’ll let you know how you’re performing against your spending goal, so you have time to make the small changes required to stay within your budget.
2. Don’t be Surprised by an Unexpected High Bill
Budget Assistant can give you peace-of-mind by providing early warning of a higher than normal bill. Let’s say you’re ok with your average bill, but you don’t want it to go any higher. Set your spending target slightly above your norm.
For example, if your bill is usually $110, you might set your spending limit at $120. Then, select to be notified “only if I’m over my spending goal.” You’ll receive an alert when we forecast that your next bill is expected to exceed your goal.
