First and foremost, you have the right to safe and reliable service. However, this does not guarantee continuous uninterrupted service. You also have the right to dispute a problem with your utility and expect that it will be handled in a fair and expeditious manner. For additional information regarding consumer rights, please visit the Indiana Administrative Code.
The IURC requires the customer and the utility to attempt to resolve the dispute before invoking the assistance of the IURC's Consumer Affairs Division. However, if a reasonable resolution is not achieved, you may contact the Consumer Affairs Division for a review of the complaint. Consumers may contact the office via mail, e-mail, telephone or fax.

Call your utility immediately and ask if you are eligible to set up a payment arrangement, which is an agreed upon payment schedule. If you are ineligible for an arrangement, inquire about other options that may be available to you. If you are unable to reach an agreement with the utility, you may contact the IURC’s Consumer Affairs Division for assistance; however, we cannot guarantee any particular outcome.
A utility may request a deposit from an existing customer if the customer has been mailed a disconnect notice two consecutive months or three times within a 12-month period. A deposit may also be requested if your services are disconnected for nonpayment and/or transferred to a new residence. Additionally, a utility may request a deposit from a new customer if the utility is unable to determine the creditworthiness of the applicant.
Call your utility and discuss your concerns. You have the right to request the utility to conduct a meter test and provide you the test results.
Utilities may estimate your bill for good cause, which may consist of, but is not limited to, the following: inclement weather, labor disputes, labor shortages, inaccessibility of a customer's meter, and other circumstances beyond the control of the utility.
