We realize many of our customers are facing challenges of their own right now. We're doing what we can to ease your worries.
MGED will not be shutting off service to customers due to late-payment or overdue bills. This will continue until the COVID-19 Emergency declaration is lifted. Any calls threatening to shut off your service are coming from scammers!
MGED customers will not lose their prompt payment discounts on overdue or unpaid bill amounts accrued during the COVID-19 emergency.
MGED will not be charging late fees on overdue or unpaid bill amounts accrued during the COVID-19 emergency.
MGED does not report any customer payment or credit history to agencies that affect credit ratings.
MGED bills are often 25 to 40% lower than typical bills in other towns served by investor-owned utilities and that helps too.
Even though you may not be able to pay your electric or natural gas bill in full, we encourage you to call our customer service representatives and make a plan. Even a partial payment for the coming months will help keep your past due balance manageable and get you back to a zero balance faster when you begin to receive emergency aid. That will be one less worry. (508-947-1371 from 8:30AM to 5PM or Contact Us online)
