Your heating costs don't have to hit you all at once! The Equity's GO LEVEL PAY allows users to spread their propane costs out over 12 months to avoid larger bills, late charges and fees at each fill.
GO LEVEL PAY runs from May through April each year. The monthly payment is determined by a calculation of the customer's average yearly usage over 3 years and the projected market price*.
GO LEVEL PAY equalizes your propane gas bills to avoids peaks in times of higher consumption. The monthly payment may need to be adjusted in the spring depending on the market price fluctuation.
With GO LEVEL PAY, you will automatically be signed up for the Keep Full program and contracting to take advantage of the most cost saving possible.
All GO LEVEL PAY Accounts must be paid in full by April 25. Accounts with credit balances have the option to roll the credit into the next GO LEVEL PAY calendar year or receive a check for the balance leftover.
The recommended form of payment for GO LEVEL PAY is automatic debit, or ACH, from your bank account with withdrawal options of the 3rd, 12th, or 25th of each month.

Energy Billing Terms
All Account Types
The Equity's standard billing terms are 12th of the month. This means all transactions that occur in the span of a calendar month are due the following month on the 12th.
For example, if a customer receives a home propane delivery on January 4, uses the self-serve fuel pumps on January 15 and purchases motor oil on January 31. All three purchases would be due in full on February 12 to avoid late charges. This is the first line on the statement: Due MM/12/YY.
Late charges are denoted as the second line: If paid by MM/31/YY. Late charges are 5% of the total unpaid amount, which was due by the 12th of the month.
If payment is not received or postmarked by the final day of the month, an additional 2% finance charge is applied to the total unpaid balance on the account that was due by the 12th.
Automatic Debit (ACH) is available to customers to allow payments to be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on the 12th of the month, to avoid having to write checks each month and to avoid late fees and finance charges.
GO LEVEL PAY Plan Terms
GO LEVEL PAY (GLP) allows for equalized monthly payments to cover residential home heating propane costs. Additionally, this allows customers to avoid larger bills, late charges and finance fees that can occur with regular 12th of the month terms. GLP runs May through April the following year, or 12 months.
Each month's GLP payment is due by the 25th of the month, instead of the regular 12th of the month.
Automatic Debit (ACH) allows customers to have payments automatically withdrawn from their bank account to avoid having to write checks each month. Three ACH options are available to customers on GLP: 3rd, 12th or 25th.
