Water & Power Option
Fewer Bills, Simpler Life
To simplify the management of your bills, we can manage the electricity and water for your apartment, if you like. We just started this in 2012, and so far many of our residents are enjoying the simplicity of making 1 payment, instead of 3 or more.
There's a generous usage cap, but you may be billed for repeated overages. We look at the usage over time, so if you use a lot of electricity in August but less in October, we call it square and don't bill you. We'll also let you know if you've run high one month, so you can try to bring your usage back down. The whole idea is to make your life simpler, not hassle you with overage charges every month.
If you want to include Water & Power in your rent, just say so on your application. You can also add or remove Water & Power at a later date by talking with our office.
Cable & Internet?
What We Can and Can't Do
We provide Expanded Basic Cable Television as part of the Baseline Package at Surrey Square, through an existing agreement with Charter.
Unfortunately, Charter has been unwilling to set up a similar agreement at Cross Creek, so we are unable to include cable at a fair price there.
The cost of adding and maintaining any amount of internet would also be much higher for us than it is for you as a new customer. We aren't going to overcharge you, so we cannot provide internet at this time.
Summary: At Surrey Square, the only thing we can't manage is Internet. At Cross Creek, we can do everything except Cable & Internet.
The prices per room for Water & Power are listed on the pages for each layout. We've done the work of figuring out average usage for units of each size, and have set it up so that by paying a flat monthly rate year-round, the highs and lows are accounted for — assuming reasonable, earth-respectful usage. You'll have a simpler budget, and don't have to set up accounts, pay additional deposits, or split bills with your roommates.
