can they shut off my electricity in the winter in Indiana for non payment?
Find answers to your legal question.

can they shut off my electricity in the winter in Indiana for non payment?

I pay my bill... this is for a family with 2 children without the means to pay it.

Yes. And obviously you don't pay your bill or it wouldn't be shut off.

The short answer is yes. However, there are a lot of conditions attached. They can't turn off your electricity on a Friday afternoon, on a holiday, or at any time when you can't contact them and have service restored immediately. Take a look at http://www.in.gov/oucc/2382.htm for Indiana's rules on utility disconnects and reconnections. - Stuart

In most places that have laws about this, YOU have to contact the electric company to invoke the law and work out a repayment plan with them. If you don't do so, they can turn it off.

Yes, pay your bills.

you bet "they" can. you need to call your power provider and get on a payment plan. they will be nice. call them, not us.

Bob Bliznack
To be honest they most likely will. This is a horrible situation but hey the world is messed up. Well i hope that everything goes well

Growth vs Oil
My guess is yes, burn some leafs in the leaf burning state. Lazy conservatives minus indy just move the leafs!
