Maryland’s moratorium on utility shut-offs expires this weekend. But if you’re behind on utility bills, BGE says it’s not too late to get help, even if you have been getting turn-off notices since October.
BGE senior vice president Tamla Olivier says 25% of customers in debt have not responded to turn-off notices. But she said there is still time to get assistance funds from the Office of Home Energy Programs (OHEP.)
“Those funds are first come first serve,” Olivier said. “So we would encourage them to reach out to us, to OHEP immediately.”
