Why your utility flat-rate billing deal may not be a deal
It’s so frustrating. You’re powering right along with your monthly budgeting when you get hit with an astronomically high utility bill.
As you scramble to find an extra $200 or more, you might be tempted to contact your power company to sign up for flat billing, which means you pay the same amount each month, regardless of your electricity usage. That’s what I did last year. But I recently discovered that flat billing isn’t as good a deal as I thought.
