PUC Reinstates Moratorium on Disconnection of Utility Service During the COVID State of Emergency

On December 22, 2020, the Public Utility Commission announced reinstating the temporary moratorium on disconnection of utility service during the COVID State of Emergency. The Commission directs Vermont's regulated utilities to stop any disconnection of utility service due to nonpayment of electricity, natural gas, and landline phone bills, except for unoccupied properties. This moratorium on involuntary utility disconnections will last through March 31,2021.
