Starting with your billing statement sent in August, we’ll be splitting residential and business accounts into separate bills. The following FAQs explain how you may be affected and what you can do to ensure the smoothest possible transition.
We’re upgrading our billing system and as part of this journey, we will be making modifications to our current process. This adjustment is the first in a series of incremental changes.
If you currently have at least one residential and one business account included on the same bill, you will be affected by the change. We will be notifying you of these changes along with your new customer account numbers starting in July 2019.
You’ll begin receiving separate bills for your residential and business customer accounts starting with the billing statements you’ll receive in August 2019. If you’re enrolled in My Account, you’ll automatically see your new customer account(s) appear after the split.
The number of billing statements you get will depend on how your residential and business customer account numbers are organized. At the very least, you will have two separate billing statements starting in August, as illustrated in the chart.
The changes to our billing system will have no impact on your current rate plans. While you will receive separate bills for your residential and business customer accounts, the rate plan you’re enrolled in will remain the same.
While your customer account number will stay the same for one of your customer accounts, one or more separate customer accounts will be created due to the billing update. Those accounts will have new numbers associated with them.
For example: If you currently have two service accounts (one residential and one business, also called a summary bill), under the new billing system, you will have two separate customer accounts. One of these accounts will have your original account number, while the other account will have a new account number.
Note: In July or early August, you will receive a personalized chart in the mail detailing your impacted customer accounts.
