Which method of paying an electric bill is smartest?

Where I live there are 3 options. The first is the traditional way, they read the meter and you pay from that. Second is they average your bills out so there's very little fluctuations. Third is basically pre-paid. Our income is pretty steady but very minimal as well.

It really depends on what you're most comfortable with, and also how predictable your energy usage is. If your budget works best with a predictable monthly payment, the averaging method might be easiest since you'll be able to budget for the bill easier. | 08.25.15 @ 19:19
