Pay Your Bill
We know you expect convenience and choice in your dealings with Elizabethtown Gas, and we work hard to give you both when it’s time for you to pay your bill.
Customer Bill Credit
We are pleased to provide customers with a one-time bill credit beginning in mid-June related to the Clean Energy Program (CEP) component of the Societal Benefits Charge (SBC), which is included in the Consolidated Adjustment Charges (CAC) on the bill. The refund amount is a result of a recent rate adjustment calculated after high winter volumes. If you have additional questions, contact Customer Care at 1-800-242-5830.
Ways to Pay Your Bill
Pay by Bank Draft
Our AutoDraft Plan lets you pay your bill automatically through a direct debit from your bank account. It's fast and secure — and free to enroll and use. Just download the application, fill it in and fax it to us or mail it to us at the address you’ll find on the application. (La aplicación está también disponible en español.)
Budget Payment Plan
Using our Budget Payment Plan is a great choice if you want your bill to be the same amount every month for the next 12 months.
Here's how the plan works:
- We estimate your natural gas usage for the next 12 months, based on your past usage.
- We divide that amount by 12 to determine your monthly payment.
- We review your plan every 6 months to make sure your budget amount is keeping pace with your actual usage. Every August, we'll adjust your monthly amount as needed for the coming payment year.
