WG&L won't cut off electricity during cold snap

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Water Gas and Light wants you to know, if you haven't paid your bill, they won't cut off your electricity during this cold snap.     

State law actually mandates that utility companies not shut off power on days when the temperature drops below freezing.     

But cutoffs can resume when the weather warms up, so WG&L officials remind customers to make catching up a priority.   WG&L has a similar summer time policy, halting cutoffs when temperatures reach 100 degrees.
