The Illinois Commerce Commission said the moratorium on utility disconnections will continue through the Winter of 2021.

Several state-regulated utilities have agreed to extend the moratorium for eligible low-income residential customers, and those who self-report to utilities that they are experiencing financial or COVID-19 hardship.

Previously, the moratorium was to be over at the end of September. 

Ameren Illinois has agreed to extend the moratorium on disconnects through March 30, 2021 for Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program qualified residential customers, and those financially impacted by COVID-19. Be sure to contact the appropriate utility company if you're having trouble paying your bill.
