How late fees are calculated

If your payment is late, you'll either be charged a flat fee, interest based on a percentage of the amount due or possibly both -- depending what services you have with us.

To avoid late fees, your bill must be paid by the date listed on your bill. You can find your due date (and account balance) on the first page of your paper bill and/or by logging in to My Account.

*Interest is based on a percentage of amount due, and that percentage is based on the Public Utility Commission (PUC) rules for the state where you live. To give you a rough estimate, it's likely to be 1 to 2 percent of the amount due each month, though as we said, that varies based on location. (To get specifics, search for "public utility commission" + [your state].)
