Deferred Payment Agreement (DPA) Rules

The end of the winter moratorium is fast approaching, and with that in mind, anyone who has a past due balance will see a disconnect date on their utility bill that will be mailed out on March 31, 2017. The disconnect date will be Wednesday, April 19, 2017.

Residential Tenant Customers will not be eligible for a deferred payment agreement (DPA) if any of the following apply.

  1. The residential tenant has greater than $100 of account arrearages that are more than 90 days past due.
  2. The residential tenant has defaulted on a deferred payment agreement in the past 12 months.
  3. The residential tenant is responsible for account arrearages that were placed on any property owner's tax bill in the utility's service territory in the past 24 months.
  4. The residential tenant has a balance that accrued during the winter moratorium that is more than 80 days past due.

In order to avoid electric disconnection, either pay the past due balance in full or set up a payment agreement, if you are eligible. In order to set up a payment agreement, you will be required to pay a minimum of 50% down of the FULL balance on your account, and sign an agreement for the balance. All deferred payment arrangements (DPA) must be signed by the account holder.
