Be AlertedGet notified when your usage is trending higher than usual. Available to customers with smart meters, the High Usage Alert compares your usage to the same month last year and can provide an early warning when your bill is trending higher. You can also set a bill threshold* to alert you when your bill is projected to be higher than a specific amount each month. Take steps now to reduce your energy usage and prevent surprises when your bill arrives.
Signing Up Is EasyJust head to the My Alerts & Notifications page in the My Profile section of your online account. High Usage Alerts are found under the Usage category. You can be alerted by email, text** or phone – or all three.
*You must have 12 months of billing data to receive High Usage Alerts. Bill threshold option is not available for Budget Billing customers and those who have chosen an energy supplier other than BGE.
