What's New at Peru Utilities
NOTICE TO ALL CUSTOMERS RECEIVING ENERGY ASSISTANCE FROM IHCDA (project safe):
These funds may ONLY be applied to the electric portion of your utility bill. Therefore, please pay all other services, including electric tax, penalties, water, wastewater, stormwater, and trash, even if the bill states “do not pay.” 2019-2020 we processed these funds differently, and we understand this wasn't very clear. Peru Utilities has reverted to posting all funds when received. Please call to inquire about your balance.
The moratorium of all nonpayment service disconnections ends on August 15th, 2020. Peru Utilities will be accepting payment arrangements for the past due balance plus the current bill over the next 6 (six) months. Past due divided by 6 plus each month's current bill. To aid our customers with daunting financial hardships, here is a list of assistance agencies not only for your utility bills but with other situations you may be facing.
You may consider calling your trustee for the township you reside in as well. Miami County also supports the 211 program. On any phone, dial 211. This service has a multitude of beneficial agencies, assistance, and support solutions.
The customer portal provides a simple web interface where customers can view usage statistics, compare their usage against temperature, and receive custom usage alerts via email or text messaging.
