Understanding Your Bill

We heard you! You told us our utility bill is hard to read, and just as hard to understand. So we are redesigning it. The new design will launch in late August.

We made the new bill easier to read, so you'll know what services you're paying for and how much you're paying for them. Below you will see bill examples for both B and G commercial rate classes. 

We're curious to hear your feedback about the new bill design so we can continue to improve it. Tell us what you think at MyTPU.org/BillSurvey.  


New Features Include:

  • Icons to represent each utility service, with a summary of charges.
  • The number of days in the billing cycle.
  • Graphs that show historical power and water use.
  • Explanation of taxes for each service.
