You’ll still receive a monthly statement that showing your utilities usage and payment amount. Review it, file it, and forget it. About 14 days after your statement date, which allows time to call us with any questions, your bank account will automatically be drafted for the amount of your bill.

Eliminate the Lows and Highs
AUB's services are interesting in that you use them well before you pay for them. Winter cold snaps and summer scorchers can lead to quite a shock when you get your bill and realize you used a lot of power or gas.
Budget Billing is a program designed to smooth the high and low payments, allowing you to more easily budget bills on an annual basis.
