Utility Assistance

A note from DDD Asst Commissioner Jonathan Seifried.

 

The moratorium on utility shut-offs is ending June 30th and will compound the challenges that some individuals already face when paying for utilities.  In response to this, the NJ Board of Public Utilities (BPU) is asking for assistance in publicizing a variety of energy assistance programs.  This will coincide with enhanced Board of Public Utilities outreach during their "Utility Assistance Week” occurring May 17-21, 2021.
