Utility regulators extend customer protections through July 31

The state Utilities and Transportation Commission extended an order preventing investor-owned energy utilities from disconnecting customers for nonpayment through July 31. Utilities will also continue to waive late fees and deposits through Jan. 27, 2022. 

The state's five investor-owned utilities are Puget Sound Energy, PacifiCorp, Avista, Northwest Natural Gas and Cascade Natural Gas. This would not impact public utility districts, which have a moratorium implemented by the governor on service disconnects and late fees through April 30.

Customers can visit for information about their rights, a comprehensive list of COVID-19 utility assistance programs and information about the federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), or call the commission at 1-888-333-WUTC (9882).
