Billing and Payment Options

Atmos Energy offers billing and payment options to help simplify your life - from recurring credit card payments to average billing. Sign up today in the Account Center or give us a call.

Budget Billing Plan
Budget billing is designed to ease fluctuations in monthly bills. The Budget Billing Plan is not a discount program; it offers no savings or lower rates. The total annual cost for natural gas remains the same, but customers have the convenience of a more predictable bill each month. Sign up today in the Account Center or give us a call.

The monthly budget billing payment is based on a rolling, 12-month average of your bill amount, exclusive of any service order fees. Your current bill, plus your previous 11 bills, are added together and divided by the total days of service for the last 12 months. This produces a budget bill amount per day, which is then multiplied by the number of days in your current bill cycle.

Each month, 1/12 of your account balance will be added (or subtracted if a credit) to your average bill amount and becomes your current bill – so your bills will vary slightly from month to month.

When you enroll in Atmos Energy Budget Billing, you will receive a monthly statement that includes three amounts:

1. "Current Charges" amount you would pay on Atmos Energy’s regular billing plan.
2. "Monthly Budget Amount” – what you owe as a Budget Billing customer.
3. "Total Budget Balance” – the actual account balance. This is the difference between what your actual bills have been and what you have paid as a Budget Billing customer. This may be a debit or credit.

Electronic Billing Plan
You can receive your bill by email. Every month, when your bill is ready we will send you an email with a summary of your bill and a link that allows you to log on to the Account Center.

Automatic Payment Plan
No more worries about late payments or writing a check each month. With the Automatic Payment Plan, your payment is automatically deducted from your financial institution or credit card each month. You will still receive a monthly statement by email notifying you of the bill amount.
