Lifting of the Disconnection Ban for Residential Customers
July 06, 2021 BACK TO NEWS

A provincial government winter disconnection ban for residential customers was in effect since November 15, 2020.

Following the Ontario government's province wide 'Stay-at-Home Order,' the Ontario Energy Board extended the winter disconnection ban, initially scheduled to end April 30, 2021, to June 2, 2021 for all residential customers. Effective June 3, 2021, all utilities were authorized to resume their residential collection and disconnection practices and procedures.

NPEI realizes that some customers may be experiencing financial uncertainty during these difficult times, and chose to further extend residential collection and disconnection activity to July 5, 2021.
