Office of the Ohio Consumers' Counsel
10 W Broad St., Ste. 1800
Columbus, OH 43215-3485
Phone: 877-742-5622 or 614-466-8574
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.
Contact you utility company directly or Public Utilities Commission of Ohio Call Center hotline at 800-686-PUCO (7826).
