The Air Force recently revised its utility allowance policy to continue to cover utility costs for the average energy consumer. For new privatized housing tenants, the revised policy for the majority of residents will now be calculated using monthly meter readings instead of a five-year average with a 10-percent buffer the previous policy used. Current occupants will remain grandfathered in the old system for one year. The new policy still supports the rebate system. Implementation of the new policy will occur in stages with bases already in live-billing status starting first. Bases not yet in live billing will first enter into a mock-billing cycle.
