Winter Moratorium Deadline TODAY

Today is the deadline to get in applications for our Winter Moratorium. Please let your elderly and disabled friends know.

The Winter Moratorium program has been in place for more than two decades and prevents cutoffs for registered customers during the months of December, January and February. Participants are still responsible for paying their utility bills during this time, but in the event that the bill exceeds the customers’ means, the customer will not be disconnected. If there is a balance left at the end of the February billing cycle, registered customers can qualify for a short term payment plan.

There are no income restrictions for the Winter Moratorium program. However, applicants cannot have an outstanding balance on their utility bill on November 28 when the program begins. The deadline for application is November 15. Simply download the Winter Moratorium application found here, fill it out and mail to:
