gov. 124 Executive order

4/7/2020

The Governor’s EO 124, issued March 31, 2020, prohibits all end-user providers of residential electric, natural gas, water, and wastewater utilities services, including local government-owned and operated utilities, from disconnecting utility services to residential customers for the next 60 days. Utility providers are encouraged, but not required, to reconnect previously disconnected service to the extent practical.

The EO further prohibits these utility providers, effective immediately, from billing or collecting any fee, charge, penalty, or interest for a late or otherwise untimely payment that becomes due from the date of the EO (March 31, 2020). Utility providers must give customers the opportunity to make reasonable payments to pay off their balances over at least a 6-month period.
