Disconnection for Non-Payment


What is the minimum amount that can be paid to avoid a debt disconnection?

The entire bill should be paid by the due date. Any delay in paying the full amount on the bill by the due date impacts a customer's credit rating negatively and should be avoided where possible. However, a customer with a satisfactory credit rating who is unable to pay the full amount by the due date should, at minimum, pay the full amount of the arrears. 

Late payments and short payments are made at the customer's risk and should be done only after consultation with a customer service representative at 626-4300.

Reconnection of service normally occurs within six (6) business hours.
