Resources for businesses

We can help business owners who are impacted by COVID-19 to pay their power bill by suspending disconnects due to non-payment, offering flexible payment arrangements and referrals to state and federal resources. Please call our Business Solutions team at 1-866-870-3419.

Federal resources

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is designed to help small businesses (generally defined as those with less than 500 employees).

A key directive of the CARES Act includes forgivable loans up to $10 million for expenses through the Paycheck Protection Program including:

  • Employee payroll and rent
  • Utility bills

Business owners and those who are self-employed, independent contractors, or sole proprietors can use the resources available through Utah's partnership with Silicon Slopes for help applying for COVID-19 forgivable loans. Funds are limited and will be allocated on a first-come basis.
