Public Advisory

In March 2020, NTUA implemented a temporary non-disconnection policy to provide financial relief for residential customers. In 2021, as other regional utility companies resumed disconnecting customers for non-payment, NTUA kept the policy in place. However, due to mounting debt regarding past due accounts, NTUA is ending the temporary moratorium on the disconnecting customers for non-payment.


We are strongly encouraging residential customers with past due bills to contact NTUA as soon as possible. We will work with you to help manage your account, including setting up reasonable payment arrangements. You may fill out of the form on this page and a member of our customer service team will contact you.


We thank the majority of our 43,000 utility customers who have worked hard to keep their accounts current. We are worried about those who are past-due.



Please be advised Navajo Nation leaders approved funding to provide financial assistance for Navajo families struggling with past due utility bills. In partnership with the Navajo Housing Authority, NTUA customers who have a past due utility bills can apply for assistance starting this month.
