Please contact your utility provider directly for the following concerns:
What services you are being billed for
What the rates are for services you are provided
General questions on account status
Account payments, extensions, payment arrangements
Billing period; Start and end of the billing cycle
Starting service or Cancelling service
Suppose you know you are being billed for something you did not order or feel your utility overcharged you. In that case, you should first attempt to resolve this with your utility provider. If the utility provider has made a billing or service error, they will often resolve the issue with you directly. You can find their contact information on your monthly billing statement, the telephone directory book, or online. When calling your utility, keep a record of the contact with the representative’s name, the call date, and the discussion details.
