An Arizona woman died after her power was cut over a $51 debt. That forced utilities to change

  • Five years after Stephanie Pullman died due to her power being cut off over a $51 debt, efforts are being made to prevent power shutoffs in Arizona, particularly during extreme heat waves.
  • In 2019, the Arizona Corporation Commission implemented a moratorium on summertime shutoffs by utilities like APS. The commission later permanently banned electricity cutoffs during the hottest months.
  • Utility companies like APS and Salt River Project are implementing measures to prevent power shutoffs during extreme heat, and government and nonprofit agencies are providing assistance programs to help low-income individuals with utility bills and repairing/replacing faulty cooling systems.
