PULASKI ELECTRIC SYSTEM VOTED TO END THE SUSPENSION OF DISCONNECTS DUE TO COVID-19 AS OF TODAY DURING THEIR RECENT MAY MEETING. P-E-S C-E-O RICHARD KELLEY ADVISED THE BOARD MEMBERS THAT THE LARGE MAJORITY OF NEIGHBORING ELECTRIC DEPARTMENTS ARE ALSO TARGETING A LATE MAY OR EARLY JUNE DATE TO RESUME DISCONNECT PROCEDURES. P-E-S BEGAN SUSPENDING DISCONNECTS APRIL 1, RESULTING IN A TOTAL OF 698 ELECTRIC CUSTOMERS WITH DELINQUENT ACCOUNTS AVOIDING LOSS OF SERVICE. THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS CREATED A FIVE-MONTH PAYMENT PLAN TO HELP THOSE WITH OUTSTANDING PAYMENTS SETTLE THEIR ACCOUNTS WITHOUT LOSING SERVICES. WHILE THE SUSPENSION OF DISCONNECTS WILL END TODAY, P-E-S WILL NOT BE DISCONNECTING ALL CUSTOMERS WITH OUTSTANDING PAYMENTS ALL AT ONCE. NORMAL BILLING CYCLES WILL CONTINUE FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL ACCOUNT WITH DUE DATES AND DISCONNECT DATES REMAINING THE SAME AS WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE ACCUSTOMED TO.
