Other solutions to help you pay your bill
Budget billing enables you to spread out your bill equally over the year. RG&E 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 RG&E 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.
The main assistance program is called HEAP:
- 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.
Payment arrangement options
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. Payment arrangements are possible with RG&E. For this, you may call RG&E's customer service, or go to a RG&E customer service office near you.
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.
