Message from President and CEO Stuart Lee

For more than 125 years, EPCOR has been an essential part of building and supporting communities, and we are deeply committed to delivering reliable services and assistance where it's needed. At times like this, more than anything else, it's important that we work collectively and make the right decisions for those who count on us.

The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are wide reaching, and many individuals and businesses have had their incomes disrupted. Unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures to support our communities and our customers. With this in mind, we are pleased to stand together with our communities and others in the utilities sector, to ensure that residents have the assistance they need and can focus their minds on taking care of their health and the health of their families.

 Billing scams

Don't fall for scams. It's important to remain alert to potential scams, especially during the COVID-19 outbreak. Always be on the lookout for suspicious phone calls, emails or texts asking for personal information or demanding immediate payment. EPCOR does not take sudden action on billing arrears. Protect yourself from potential scams and find out when you might hear from us and when you should be suspicious.

​EPCOR has plans in place to manage disruptions or emergencies, and we are committed to providing reliable utility services to the communities that count on us. We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 outbreak, and will provide further updates on customer service impacts.

Only flush toilet paper down the toilet

During this time we want to remind you that not all paper is created equal. Protect our water and environment, while preventing damage to your own pipes by properly disposing of certain household items. Disposable wipes and other household items are not meant to be flushed down the toilet because they can damage your pipes and clog the wastewater system. Learn what not to flush.
