As the winter heating season comes to a close, Vectren reminds customers the regulatory moratorium, which prevents utilities from disconnecting customers who meet low-income guidelines and have received federal and state utility heating assistance, will expire on Friday, March 15.
Customers who have received a disconnect notice or, regardless of household income, need bill payment assistance are urged to contact Vectren at 1-800-227-1376 to make payment arrangements and avoid potential disconnection.
State and federal utility assistance dollars through the Energy Assistance Program are still available for income-eligible customers.
Those that fall below 150 percent of federal poverty guidelines should visit their local community action agency to sign up for EAP.
Visit www.incap.org or call 1-800-382-9895 to locate the local community action agency.
