Budget Billing (a.k.a., the Budget Plan) is an optional payment program for Dominion Energy customers in Utah, Wyoming and Idaho that allows you to pay the same amount each month for natural gas service. The Budget Plan takes the guess-work out of paying bills by dividing your estimated annual billing amount into 12 equal payments.

Combine with AutoPay

You can make bill paying even simpler when you sign up for AutoPay (automatic bank draft). AutoPay allows you to have your Budget Plan amount automatically withdrawn from your checking or savings account.

Past-Due Balances

Although you cannot sign up for the Budget Plan if your balance is past due, you can combine the Budget Plan with a payment arrangement called a Deferred Payment Agreement (DPA). A DPA helps you pay off your past-due balance by dividing the amount owed into equal monthly payments. Contact Dominion Energy to find out if you qualify for a DPA.

Program Details

How the plan works

  • We estimate your annual usage based on your billing history. Then, using current rates, we calculate an annual billing amount and divide by 12 to determine your monthly Budget Plan payment for the year.
  • After you enroll in Budget Plan, we continue to read your meter and list the actual gas used on your monthly statement. Your monthly bill shows your actual current gas bill even though you only pay the monthly Budget Plan amount.
  • Your bill will also show your Budget Plan balance that represents the amount you have paid during the plan year that is more or less than the total of your actual gas bills for the same period. This will appear as either a debit or credit.
  • Throughout the year, we compare your actual usage to the estimated amount used to calculate your monthly Budget Plan payment and determine if a change needs to be made. If your usage is higher or lower than expected, or if there has been a significant rate change, we adjust your payment to keep your account in balance.

Plan transfers when moving

If you move within Dominion Energy's service territory, your Budget Plan balance can be transferred to your new residence. Please contact Dominion Energy to arrange for service and to determine your new Budget Plan amount.

If you are moving to a new residence, you can still participate in the Budget Plan unless there is no billing history for the residence. We will estimate your Budget Plan amount based on the historical usage at the premises but keep in mind that family size, usage habits and other factors can affect the billing amount.

The best way to ensure a good estimate of your Budget Billing amount is to first establish an accurate billing history at your new residence.

How to sign up

  • If your account is current, you can enroll in the Budget Plan by calling us.
  • If you have a past-due balance, combine the Budget Plan with an option called a Deferred Payment Agreement (DPA), as described above.

Stopping the Budget Plan

  • Simply notify us to end participation. Please note that when you stop using the Budget Plan, you will receive a refund or a charge equal to the Budget Plan balance due on your next bill.
  • You will be dropped from the Budget Plan if you miss two payments. You can always make your payment in advance, or overpay. However, once the total overpayment is used, and no more payments are made, we will record a missed payment.
