Budget Billing

Alexandria Light and Power has budget billing available to customers that have electric heat and own their own homes. Customers with electric heat have higher electric bills during the winter months and lower bills the other times of the year. These fluctuations can make budgeting for your utility bill difficult.

ALP's budget billing program allows you to even out your energy costs over the course of a year through a fixed payment each month. With this payment plan, you will not experience high bill surprises in the months you use the most electricity and your budget is easier to manage. We reconcile your account at the end of each year.

To qualify for this program, we need at least 12 months of utility history at your current residence and your balance must be current. Your budget payment is due on or before the due date on your bill. If you are interested, we need a signed Budget Plan Agreement to start you on this program. If you have any questions about this program, call (320) 763-6501.

If you need help paying your electric utility bills, you may qualify for state or federal assistance. For complete qualifications and application information, contact:
