Update on Tampa Electric's COVID-19 Response.

COVID-19 Response: Helping each other power through.

Since the start of the pandemic, Tampa Electric has been committed to helping our customers weather this crisis. We suspended disconnections for non-payments for several months, and provided customers with multiple resources to get financial relief. New funding is now available through our partners at Hillsborough County. Learn more about eligibility and apply now.

As we take steps to resume normal billing practices, we've extended suspension of disconnects for non-payment through the end of August. Customers behind on payments may receive a "final notice" in the next few weeks. This gives additional time – a grace period – to take action now to avoid disconnection. Scroll down to learn about more resources available to assist, your eligibility, and documentation required.
