The annual review determines your EPP balance. It finds any difference between the cost of the electricity you used during the period covered and the total amount you were billed for. Your annual electricity cost may be determined to be lower or higher than anticipated.

If you use more electricity than you are billed for, you will have an EPP balance due, which will be spread out over the next 12 monthly installments. You may also pay the amount in full if you prefer.
The annual review also determines the amount of your monthly installments for the next 12 months.
