We realize the process of returning to normal will take time. We’re here to help those still dealing with financial hardship and to support our communities through the gradual process of economic recovery. Our resumption of standard billing and credit practices will begin in October. Customers needing more time to pay will have the opportunity to establish extended payment agreements that allow any outstanding balances to be paid over time, in installments.
If you or someone you know needs financial assistance, 211.org can help locate available resources. This free service can help you find local community agencies aiding with a wide range of needs including utility bills, housing, food, child and elder care and medical expenses. To get started, simply visit 211.org or dial 211 from your phone.
We have a variety of payment options that give customers convenient ways to pay.
To help our employees, customers and communities in this challenging time, we initially donated $1.6 million to COVID-19 relief agencies across our service territories for Piedmont Natural Gas and Duke Energy. This money was distributed through local nonprofits to help feed the hungry and support other needs of those affected by the pandemic. We know the needs are great for many right now and we will continue to look for ways we can support our customers, communities and employees.
As part of our efforts to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we’re taking extra steps before any direct interactions with our customers or others in the public. If an in-person meeting is necessary, our employees may ask a series of questions before entering a home or facility. They may also wear special protective clothing and ask that you help them maintain a distance of at least 6 feet.
