Utility Companies Agree To Special Collections For New Yorkers Affected By Shutdown

Local News

New York’s major electric and gas utilities are doing their part to help furloughed customers and those working without pay due to the Federal government shutdown.

The New York Public Service Commission yesterday (January 17) announced eight different companies have committed to special collection practices, including National Grid and NYSEG.

Specific provisions will vary by utility, but some of the special practices include suspending or waiving late payment fees, extending or deferring payment due dates and making deferred payment agreements tailored to each affected customer’s financial circumstances.

These utilities have all committed to keeping these provisions in place for the duration of the shutdown and until customers get paid.
