The BPU urges customers who may qualify for assistance with unpaid utility bills to apply as soon as possible to a program grant received by the City of Jamestown as part of its COVID-19 Response.

According to BPU General Manager David L. Leathers, support provided through the grant possibly could pay a qualified customer's entire BPU utility bill.

Eligibility for the program: 

  • a BPU customer who lives in Jamestown;

  • receiving no assistance from the Department of Social Services for utilities;

  •  having been current on BPU bills as of March, 2020;

  •  and having received a termination notice from the BPU.
