The utility payment deferral program has ended, do I have to pay my total deferral balance immediately?
Total deferred balances from the utility payment deferral program do not have to be paid immediately. Customers had the option to set up an installment plan to help manage deferred payments.
If customers did not set up an installment plan for their deferred payments before July 18, 2020, a ten-payment plan was set up for them.
