Budget Bill

Enjoy predictable bills year-round

Budget Bill is a free billing option that takes your annual energy bill and divides it by 12, so you pay the same amount each month. Most residential customers, small businesses, small farms, schools and not-for-profit organizations in good financial standing with Vectren are eligible for Budget Bill. You can enroll in Budget Bill or manage your enrollment online via your Vectren.com account or by contacting a representative.

How Budget Bill works

Before you sign up for Budget Bill, you will be presented with a "Budget Bill amount" during the enrollment process. This amount is the amount you will pay each month by enrolling, and is a calculation based on the following factors:

Past 12 months of usage

We look at the past 12 months of energy usage at your residence or facility.

Normal weather

The calculation assumes normal weather will occur over the next 12 months.

Expected energy costs

We factor in the expected cost of natural gas and/or electricity.

About Recalculations

In early summer, we will recalculate your Budget Bill amount to ensure that your original Budget Bill amount remains accurate. During this time, if you paid for more energy than you used, we'll recalculate your new Budget Bill payment, which may reduce your new Budget Bill payment for the next 12-month period. If your actual charges are greater than what you paid while on the Budget Bill plan, your new Budget Bill payment may increase for the next 12-month period.

All you need is your Vectren account number and a valid email address.com. Get started
