Bill Assistance News Item 1

COVID Customer Protections Extended Through September 30

The past year has been difficult, and while our economy is reopening, we know many are still struggling to keep up with utility bills. We want to continue to support you through this process and provide resources to help you recover financially.

The California Public Utilities Commission recently voted to extend COVID-19 customer protections through September 30, 2021 (previously June 30, 2021). This means you are still protected from having your power turned off due to nonpayment. However, if you have an overdue balance on your electricity bill it is still important to develop a plan and take action as soon as possible to avoid disconnection once protections expire.

To help, SJCE has outlined a list of electricity bill assistance programs that you may be eligible for.
