As part of our response to the COVID-19 situation and as we increase our efforts for social distancing, we urge customers to enroll for online services at our Online Customer Service Center or through our mobile app. That way, you can submit customer service requests for the following: start, stop or move service requests, request payment arrangements through an authenticated channel, report payment, submit billing inquiries, schedule one-time or automatic bill payment, as well as report and check status on outages.

Also, please watch out for scammers. If you experience fraudulent activity, please submit a report to us.

Report Fraud

We appreciate your patience, understanding and cooperation. Please continue to stay safe.
