Howard County Executive Calvin Ball
As of yesterday, November 15th, the moratorium on utility shut-offs has expired and utility companies may now begin shut-offs for nonpayment. Residential customers who are behind on payments have 45 days from receipt of notice to work out a payment plan or apply for energy assistance programs. Customers who take either action will not have service disconnected.
You are not alone. There are services available for residents who may need help paying these bills. For more information on energy assistance programs, please visit https://dhs.maryland.gov/.../local-home-energy-program.../
