Disconnection suspensions continue

LIHU‘E– Kaua‘i Island Utility Cooperative has extended its suspension of service disconnections through July 31.

“Some members continue to face severe financial challenges,” said KIUC’s President and Chief Executive Officer, David Bissell. “We’re working individually with customers who have concerns and will continue to reevaluate the situation as we move forward.”

The suspension of service disconnection will apply to both residential and commercial customers. KIUC members are reminded that bill payments have not been waived, and past-due amounts will grow over time if no payments are made.
