Flat billing catches on

September 28, 2006

Albany -- A new billing program by Water, gas and light seems to be a big hit.  

Enrollment for the new budget billing program with WG&L just started. Already, 346 people have enrolled.

This is how the program works. If you've lived at the same residence for the past 12 months, as a Water, gas and light customer, your bills for the past year are averaged, and that's the rate you'll pay for the next 12 months.  

"It's something for everybody," said WG&L's Lorie Farkas.  "Whether you're young or old or on a small budget or large budget, you don't have to wonder anymore when you open up that utility bill."

The only requirement to enroll is that you have been a WG&L customer for the past year at the same address.
