Alectra Utilities is here to help
Service disconnections are avoidable – we are here to help with payment plans, support programs, and conservation programs.
For households that are having difficulties paying their bills, we’re here help. Alectra Utilities has payment plans that can assist customers with keeping their accounts up-to-date. Disconnecting a customer’s electricity service for non-payment is a decision Alectra Utilities takes only as a last resort.
Alectra Utilities provides at least ten days’ notice of scheduled service disconnections to provide you with an opportunity to contact us for payment arrangements. We will also telephone you to remind you of any outstanding payments owed. Please make sure we have your current contact information by contacting our Customer Service department at 905-273-7425.
