Make uniform bill payments to help you avoid seasonal fluctuation of payment amounts.
In FirstEnergy's Equal Payment Plan (EPP), you're billed one-twelfth of your annual estimated usage each month. To account for your actual household use during the year, Ohio and Pennsylvania operating company customers have their accounts reviewed quarterly and the payment amount adjusted, if necessary. In New Jersey, the reviews occur in the 8th and 12th months - it is at these times that payment amounts might be adjusted.
On the anniversary month of your enrollment, the amount due is adjusted - higher or lower than your usual amount - in order to bring your balance for the year to zero. Then your account is reviewed annually to ensure the appropriate payment amount for the new plan year.
