Our commitment to our customers remains resolute — we’re here to help. If you are having trouble paying your energy bill due to the effect of COVID-19, there are options available.
A payment extension allows extra time beyond your original due date to pay your balance without fear of disconnection. Eligible customers should note that they need to:
- Call us prior to the disconnection notice due date to request the extension.
- Be prepared to pay a disconnection notice fee (if a disconnection notice was issued) and a disconnect recovery fee.
Deferred Payment Plan
Deferred payment plans will be offered to all customers, upon request. A deferred payment plan allows you to pay the balance you owe in installments along with your regular monthly bill.
A reminder that if you agree to a deferred payment plan, you will not be able to switch to another electricity provider until your deferred balance is paid in full. Amounts you owe for enrollment deposits, final bills and write-off amounts may not be included.
Any customer who requests a deferred payment plan should note that they need to:
- Pay 35% of what you owe up front.
- Be prepared to pay the rest in installments along with your next few current monthly bills (invoices).
Additionally, if you’re seriously ill, you may qualify for other options.

For those customers who are currently at home, we recommend taking energy-saving steps to reduce power usage, like unplugging infrequently used electronics, raising your thermostat (if comfortable and safe to do so), and using natural light and fans rather than overhead lighting and AC.
Continue to rely on resources like the CDC for more information about COVID-19 and take steps, like practicing social distancing and washing your hands, in order to minimize the virus’ impact.
In over 20 years of business, we have seen our customers through many highs and lows, and we’re committed to serving our community through this situation. As we face these challenging times, we appreciate your trust and will be in contact as new developments around coronavirus emerge.
