Chesapeake Utilities Corporation and our subsidiaries recognize the financial challenges some customers may be experiencing as a result of the unprecedented pandemic. We are dedicated to working closely with each customer to ensure uninterrupted services to their homes, businesses and industries.
We have expanded our billing and payment options to include the elimination of a deposit to secure a payment arrangement and the extension of payment periods for up to 12 months. We can connect customers with social service organizations that are prepared to assist with financial programs. Customers may also apply for grants offered through our SHARING Program by contacting local Energy Assistance Offices or visiting www.chesapeakesharing.com. This program offers several grants (including a COVID-19 grant) that can help pay consumers’ gas bills. Assistance is also available through local, state and federal agencies by calling 211.
As a precautionary measure to aid in preventing COVID-19, and in the interest of our customers’ wellness and the safety of our employees, our walk-in offices will remain closed. Elkton Gas offers several convenient ways to pay your bill including online, U.S.P.S. mail, by phone, auto-pay or at any one of our authorized payment locations. To learn more or to enroll in EZ-BILLING, please visit www.elktongas.com.
We urge customers who are having difficulty keeping their accounts paid and current to contact Elkton Gas at 1.866.281.6774 as soon as possible.
Resources are available for customers who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of COVID-19.
Chesapeake Utilities Corporation is committed to helping to support our customers and communities, especially those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We recently donated $200,000 to organizations assisting communities impacted by the coronavirus.
These donations are helping to support organizations such as Feeding America, United Way and The Salvation Army as they continue to provide food assistance and financial resources, and address short-term and long-term community needs.
For years, Chesapeake Utilities has also supported our customers through our SHARING program, a nonprofit organization that provides funds to our customers who need financial assistance to pay their natural gas and propane gas bills.
