As we approach the reinstatement of disconnects and late fees, we want to keep our members informed on the payment options we are offering. EnergyUnited is offering a 9-month repayment plan to those members who have accumulated balances during these difficult times. These members have been automatically enrolled in the repayment plan option.
Financial assistance is available to individuals in need through many local nonprofit organizations, including the EnergyUnited Foundation. Also, you may be eligible to receive assistance through the Department of Social Services’ Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) and Crisis Intervention Program (CIP).
EnergyUnited Propane is offering new payment plan options for all propane customers with past due balances. These options will be available for both Smart Buy and Net 30 Billing customers and will offer payment flexibility that helps customers gradually reduce large balances. As applicable finance charges and lock outs resume for past due balances beginning on August 1, we encourage all affected propane customers in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia to utilize these payment plan options. We also encourage propane customers who are experiencing continued hardship to call 211 for a third-party utility bill assistance referral, or visit energyunited.com/assistance for more information.
Our offices will remain closed to the public for now, but we remain fully operational.
