"They can't shut off my heat or lights in the winter!"
- Utility companies regulated by the Montana Public Service Commission (PSC) are allowed to disconnect under certain circumstances, no matter what time of year it is.
- Companies not regulated by the PSC, such as electric cooperatives and propane distributors, have their own procedures and rules.
More information can be obtained through the PSC: 1-800-646-6150 or visit their website (psc.mt.gov). We also encourage you to contact your energy provider and ask them what their disconnect rules and procedures are.
