Each month, your cooperative generates and sends you a bill for the energy you used during that billing period. Your energy use is tracked by our automated meter reading system and reported daily to our billing system. At the end of your billing period, our systems calculate how much electricity you have used and create a bill for that amount. Two key benefits to you of our automated system are the elimination of estimated consumption which do not accurately reflect your real use and human error that can result in incorrect bills. As a Sussex REC member, you can be assured of the most accurate bill possible.
The bill itself provides more information than just what you owe the cooperative. It also tells you what goes into the total amount and shows you how much electricity you have used in the past 13 months. Information like this can help you track consumption and look for ways to conserve. Below is an example of a bill that provides explanation for certain sections. This information can help you understand your bill more completely.
