Other solutions to help you pay your bill
Budget plan enables you to spread out your bill equally over the year. National Grid will estimate your energy usage over the whole year, and spread out the payments equally, so that even though both the price of electricity and your consumption will change every month, you will be paying the same amount. To find out more about this, go to our National Fuel Budget Plan page.
Payment assistance programs
There are various payment assistance programs for people who have difficulty in paying their bill due to low income, medical difficulties, or for other reasons.
There are 2 assistance programs with National Fuel:
- Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP): this is a federal grant program which helps eligible customers in paying for energy costs, repairs and weatherization. Customers may receive either a regular monthly payment, or an emergency one-time payment. For the 2014 - 2015 period, the funds opened November 17, 2014, and closed on March 27, 2015. The Department of Social Services will accept applications on or after those dates.
Deferred Payment Agreement
Sometimes, you do not need a payment assistance program, but simply a one-time bit of slack, because you have trouble paying your bill just this one time. National Fuel can arrange this if you fill the right conditions. To find out more, you can speak with a representative by calling 800-365-3234.
If you care about the environment, you can apply for paperless billing. Instead of receiving your bill through the postal service, you will receive it by email. The advantage is that you can access it anywhere you are connected to the internet.
