An update on disconnects:
On Saturday, May 30, 2020, Governor Roy Cooper issued executive order 142 which extends the moratorium on utility disconnections.
Haywood EMC will comply with this order. As a local organization, Haywood EMC understands firsthand the challenges that COVID-19 has created for our members and the community. However, we are also concerned that some members of the cooperative may think that they do not have to pay their utility bills during this pandemic. In reality, the accrued bills will have to be paid back over time which was outlined in executive order 142.
We encourage cooperative members, who are experiencing payment difficulties to contact our office to develop a payment plan to help you keep the power on when executive order 142 expires.
