New York Utilities Adopt A No-Disconnect Policy During Pandemic
Can you imagine being sent home from your job, or being quarantined to your house and then having your electricity turned off because you couldn't pay your electric bill? Well, Governor Cuomo and the major New York utilities have come together to make sure that doesn't happen. This is good news for thousands of people that will be affected by closures due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In an article from www.nyup.com John B. Rhodes, CEO of The Department of Public Service said, “Ensuring affordable, safe, secure and reliable access to electric, gas, and water services for New York State’s residential and business consumers is at the heart of everything we do, By suspending utility disconnects, we are ensuring that those affected by the virus will not have to worry about keeping critical utility services available.”
It's great to see not only individuals coming together to help each other in times of crisis but businesses and corporations too.
