What are the key benefits of monthly billing?
Monthly billing will offer customers smaller, more manageable payments and it will better align with other
monthly expenses, making it easier to manage their budget.
A monthly bill is also a better tool to help customers understand their consumption habits, because it
provides more timely information about electricity use, which makes the bill more effective in helping
manage electricity costs.
When will customers be moved to monthly billing?
Waterloo North Hydro will start to move customers to monthly billing in early 2017.
How will customers on Equal Payment Plan (EPP) be affected?

two months. Their monthly payment amount and due date will not change.
How will customers on Pre-Authorized Payments (PAP) be affected?
Customers on PAP will see a payment withdrawn from their account each month on the due date of the
bill, rather than bi-monthly.
How will customers on eBilling be affected?
Customer on eBilling will receive an email every month once their bill is ready for viewing, rather than bimonthly.

layout make the bill easier to read and understand while providing valuable energy consumption
information. Waterloo North Hydro has also decreased the paper size of the bill from legal to letter to

How will the change in account number affect customers?
