UCEMC recognizes the significant economic fallout from the pandemic. During the crisis, service disconnections due to non-payment of bills were temporarily suspended, just one of the many steps taken to reduce stress on families and businesses in an uncertain time. The COVID-19 pandemic was unprecedented, causing record unemployment and financial challenges. However, these accounts will need to be made whole soon. UCEMC will immediately begin working with members who have missed payments or have a past due balance due to economic hardship.
• Monday, June 15, 2020 – UCEMC will resume disconnections for accounts with a past due balance unless payment arrangements are made in advance with UCEMC.
Payment solutions UCEMC can explore with members may include setting up a Pre-pay account, or arranging payments over six months, depending on the amount in arrears. UCEMC members unable to pay their electric bills are urged to contact UCEMC as soon as possible to discuss making a payment or setting up a payment plan.
