What's New at Peru Utilities



The question often arises where Peru Utilities’ and customers’ responsibilities end and begin regarding electrical services. For overhead service, customers need to supply and maintain a meter base, grounding point and wire, service mast with wire and weatherhead, and an attachment point (either clamped around the service mast or screwed directly into the house). Customers will also be responsible for tree growth near service lines. Customers must supply and maintain a meter base and grounding point with wire for underground service. Peru Utilities will maintain primary, transmission, and service lines(overhead and underground) as far as the meter, utility poles, transformers, and trees around primary and transmission lines. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to call our office at 765-473-6681

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.
