ANZA – Effective immediately, Anza Electric Cooperative Inc. has temporarily suspended disconnection of service for non-payment of accounts for both electric service and ConnectAnza internet service.

The utility is waiving fees normally associated with disconnection as the community has been directly affected by business closures and work stoppages.

“Our members are negatively impacted by these actions; further, many members have been forced to self-isolate to avoid exposure to the virus, and the utility services that we provide are essential for everyone’s comfort and safety,” Kevin Short, general manager of Anza Electric Cooperative, said. “This suspension does not relieve the responsibility to pay for electric and internet services but provides us a tool to extend payment arrangements that would otherwise be unavailable.”

Residents who require assistance in making arrangements for payment should contact Anza Electric Cooperative as soon as possible at (951)763-4333, he said.
