The Governor of North Carolina issued Executive Order 124 on March 31, 2020 due to conditions regarding COVID-19. The Executive Order prohibits all utilities in the state from disconnecting water, wastewater, electric, and natural gas service to residential customers for at least 60 days, prohibits utilities from imposing late fees and penalties, mandates payment plan parameters, and imposes a new reporting requirement.
This was a Zoom call to provide information on this Executive Order requirements, offer legal and practical considerations, and discuss financial implications.
The slides are available for download under the Resources tab.
