Manage Your Bill

Click here to learn how to save money on your utility bill!

No one enjoys a high utility bill. But by planning ahead, Wilson Energy customers have tools to keep their costs as low as possible.

Reduce your costs

The easiest way to keep your utility bill manageable is to manage your use of electricity and natural gas. Because rates typically are constant from month to month, the rise and fall of bills correspond directly with consumption.

More than 50 percent of annual energy costs come from your home's heating and cooling systems.

Even out bill payments through the year

Budget Billing allows a customer to smooth out the peaks and valleys of the energy bill.

Under a budget billing plan, customers’ bills (based on prior payment and consumption experience) are averaged out over the course of the year so that the customer pays the same amount every month. This system of equal and predictable monthly payments makes it easier for customers to plan their household budgets.

The program is free. To find out more, write to cwoodard@wilsonnc.org or call 252.399.2170.

Save $68 a year through 'Beat the Peak' program

Residential customers can save $4 on their bill every month by allowing us to remotely cycle off their water heater during the peak load of each month. The switch is free; the installation is free. You can also be credited $5/month (during summer months) for allowing us to put a similar switch on your air conditioning unit. Typically, you'll never even notice that the appliances have been turned off for the short time. The credit appears on your monthly bill.

Together, customers can save $68 a year without any loss of comfort.

To request installation of one or both switches, call (252) 399.2415 or complete this online form.  A Wilson Energy representative will contact you to set up a day and time for the installation.
