MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont regulators are ending the moratorium on utility disconnections next Thursday.

The Vermont Public Utility Commission made that announcement Thursday.

In mid-March, the state banned utility shut-offs because of the pandemic and economic hardships it created. In mid-August, the state made $8million available to help Vermonters who owe money to utilities.

The offer ends in December, even if there is money left over.

If you’re a GMP customer, the company will suspend disconnections until at least 2021.
