All customers are eligible for the Prompt Payment Discount. This includes all natural gas and electric customers and on both commercial and residential charges. This is a 15% discount on customer and distribution charges (exclusive of Purchased Power or Purchased Natural Gas charges) if paid within 10 days of the billing date. It appears on the bill below the Gross Amount and above the Net Amount Due.
You can pay the Net Amount Due by the Discount Date listed on the bill to take advantage of this money-saving incentive. However, if you are on the senior rate, you have a full 30 days to pay without losing this discount.
Senior Discounted Rate
If you are aged 65 or over, you may qualify for one of our lower elderly rates. Any customer over the age of 65 is eligible for our senior rate, which is effectively 5% lower than our standard residential rate, exclusive of fuel charges.
Once you’re on this rate, you’ll have a full 30 days to pay instead of the usual ten and you won’t lose your prompt payment discount. To apply, just contact our office at 508-947-1371. A positive ID will be required. Don’t miss this chance to save!
