Nunavut’s power corp. offers ‘flexible payment options’ to customers
Qulliq Energy Corp. also says late fees will be waived, and it won’t cut off service
Nunavut’s power corporation is offering its customers “flexible payment options” during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jeannie Ehaloak, the minister responsible for Qulliq Energy Corp., announced on Monday, April 27, that residential and commercial customers struggling to pay their electricity bills will receive support during the pandemic.
They can get in touch with QEC’s customer service department to discuss payment plan options.
This doesn’t mean that customers don’t have to pay their bills, Ehaloak said.
Until further notice, for the customers who apply for flexible payment options, late fees will be waived, interest will not accrue, the corporation won’t disconnect service, and load limiters will not be applied, she said.
A load limiter restricts how much electricity is available to a household or business.
All previous load limiters have been removed and all disconnection notices have been stopped, Ehaloak said.
A previous version of this story said that until further notice, late fees will be waived, interest will not accrue, and the corporation won’t disconnect service. But that is only true for customers who apply for flexible payment options.
