If you believe everything is okay, you need do nothing more – your account will automatically be debited 15 days from your bill date. It’s that easy. Your next month’s bill will reflect your payment, just as if you paid by check. Your monthly bank statement will also show the amount deducted from your account and paid to us.

If you are a Residential Service or General Service customer, and your account is in good standing, you qualify for our Budget Payment Plan that will spread out your winter heating bills. The enrollment period for the upcoming winter begins in June of each year. Beginning each September and ending in May, you can pay your winter natural gas heating bills in monthly installments. Your monthly payments will be based on the past consumption history at your service address. If needed, we may adjust your payment amount during the heating season. In June when you receive your regular monthly bill, you will either receive a bill for any additional amount owed or a credit for any overpayment. Please note that all monthly payments under this plan must be made by the scheduled due dates. For additional information or to sign up for the Budget Payment Plan, please call your nearest Chesapeake office.
If you are experiencing difficulty in paying your gas bill, please give us a call. Our Customer Service Representatives may be able to assist you with setting up a payment plan, or locating energy assistance or budgeting programs that may be available.
If you plan to be away from your service address for an extended period of time, you may have your billing address temporarily changed. Simply notify us before your departure to have your natural gas bill forwarded; then contact your nearest Chesapeake office before you return.
