Senior Citizen Rate Credits are based on billings made between January 1 and April 30 of the previous year. Winter heating season is typically the period of highest average energy usage, which is why those months are used to calculate the credit. If you’re approved for the Senior Citizen Rate Credit, a credit equal to 75% of the previous year’s winter bills (not to exceed $500 annually; excludes any additional meters) will be applied to your account balance. Senior Citizen Rate Credits are applied to eligible accounts annually and new applications can be processed at any time during the year.
