Why do multiple bill lines display in transaction history?
The current billing system was installed in December 2010. Data prior to that date was converted from a prior system. The converted data is displayed by actual transaction date. For billing purposes, you would have received a single bill which represents combined multiple converted bill transaction dates that are within a few days of each other. We regret that this converted data could not be combined; however, your recent bills after the conversion date are combined.
How can I review the consumption history on my account?
Select “Usage History” under “Account Options”. You may view historical usage by calendar year for each active service on your account.

You may compare your usage history by selecting a service type in the first available selection area. The data is the historical usage for your account only. You may compare your usage history with customers in your local area by selecting options under the “Consumption Comparison” area. You have two options: compare to others on your street or compare to others in your surrounding area. The surrounding area includes customers that are in your same local area reading route – nearby streets. The data compares residential to residential class customers and commercial to commercial class customers.
