Understanding Your Utility Bill
With the introduction of competitive providers in the
telecommunications, gas and electric industry, consumers
may find it increasingly difficult to make sense of
the various rates, fees and charges that appear on their
bills. How can you make sure your utility bill is accurate?
- Carefully review your bill each month.
- Question and investigate any charges that you don’t
- Read all flyers and additional materials included
with your bill.
Many of our utilities provide information on understanding
your utility bill right on their websites. Links to
those sites are shown below. In addition, the Federal
Communications Commission’s website provides valuable
information to consumers on reading and understanding
a telephone bill.
