The Office of the Ohio Consumers' Counsel represents households in court and educates consumers about electric, natural gas, telephone, and water issues.
State law prevents utilities from disconnecting a consumer’s electric and natural gas services for nonpayment if a permanent member of the household has a medical condition defined as “especially dangerous” to health and the consumer has a medical certification waiver on file with the utility company.
In some cases, electric companies can give preference to prevent disconnection or establish a reconnection of utility service to individuals who rely on life support devices, such as respirators, ventilators or other medical equipment.
