June 12 — Beginning June 19, 2021, retail electric providers (REPs) and water/sewer utilities must issue new disconnection warning notices to customers whose past due accounts put them at risk of service termination. According to PUC rules, those notices will trigger a ten-day waiting period to allow customers to arrange for payment, meaning disconnections can resume on June 29, 2021.
“This is not an easy decision and it was not taken lightly,” said PUC Chairman Peter Lake. “But by acting now, customers will be able to take advantage of deferred payment plans or federal assistance ahead of the summer season.”
