How to Read Your Utility Bill
(in Deregulated States)

Learn what you're paying for and why

En español | AARP is dedicated to helping you save money on your home energy bill by fighting against unfair utility rate hikes. But you may also be able to save money by familiarizing yourself with your monthly bill. Understanding what to look for on your bill can help you identify errors and allow you to monitor your energy usage. Utility bills differ by energy type (electricity, natural gas, etc.) and distributor (your natural gas or electric "company," also known as a utility). However, there is some key information you should look for when reading your bill. This information will allow you to interpret what you are paying and why.
