The level payment plan is a way
for Nebraska City Utilities’ (NCU) customers to pay the same
amount each month regardless of the current billing for the
individual customer. This plan allows the customer to
budget the same amount each month for utilities for a twelve
(12) month period. NCU will use the previous twelve (12)
month’s billing information and use that total divided by
twelve (12) to determine the monthly level payment amount for
the next year. See below for guidelines to participate in
this program. If you are interested in the level payment
plan please contact our business office at
(402) 873-3353 or use our online form to have an application
sent to you.
