CUC will be offering a payment deferment or due date extension for residential customers in response to the Covid-19 outbreak and its effect on CNMI residents.
CUC noted that this allows up to a one-month utility bill payment to be delayed over a three-month period. Again, the assistance applies to only one-month of utility charges.
“During this public health crisis, it is important that we look out for one another. This relief package approved by the CUC board and their leadership is a much-needed assistance during these challenging times. I thank the CUC board, Executive Director Gary Camacho, and his entire staff and linemen for the work they do and the services they provide for our islands. We encourage residents to take advantage of this relief, but to be respectful to our CUC frontline staff when applying for this relief,” said Governor Torres.
“CUC realizes this is an extremely challenging time for our customers and our community as a whole with unknown certainties ahead of us. We are doing our best to continue providing essential power, water, and wastewater services, even more so, critical during a public health crisis. I feel the sentiments of our employees and the community who are trying to make adjustments in life and focus on their family. This is one way that CUC can assist our community, by trying to make their situation a little better even if is a small relief, it would allow them to take their resources for now and apply them to where they feel is best for their families,” said CUC Executive Director Gary Camacho.
