Help for Victims of Hurricane Harvey
We feel a part of the communities we serve, and we stand with our customers and neighbors who are dealing with the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
To show our solidarity and support, we are committing to the following through at least October 2, 2017:
- We will not charge any late fees. We don't want to add to the increased financial burden many of you are experiencing.
- We will not disconnect your power. If you experience an interruption during this time, contact your local utility.
- We won't report late payments to credit reporting agencies, even if you were behind on your bill before the storm hit.
- If you need to arrange a flexible or deferred payment plan, we will work with you to find a solution that suits your specific situation.
We are proud of the strength and resilience of our fellow Texans, and very grateful to the emergency response workers who have come from across the U.S. to help us rebuild our communities.
