COVID-19 Customer Assistance and Payment Plans

On May 30, 2020, Governor Cooper extended the provisions of Executive Order 124 (EO 124) through July 29, 2020. Unless the provisions of EO 124 are again extended by the Governor, we will resume our normal disconnection and late fee policies after that date.

All applicable customers will receive six (6) monthly payment plan installments for any accumulated charges during the effective period.
