Update on Tampa Electric's COVID-19 Response.

Need help? COVID-19 assistance is available.

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 continue providing customers with multiple resources to get financial relief.

We're trying every way possible to avoid disconnecting customers for non-payment. However, if you receive a final notice and do not make payment in a timely manner, your service will be disconnected. As part of our standard billing practice, once a disconnect occurs, full payment plus fees will apply to reconnect your electric service. Take action now to avoid disconnection. Scroll down to learn about more resources available to assist, your eligibility, and documentation required.
