The Arkansas Public Service Commission has set a target date of May 3 to lift the moratorium to suspend all disconnections of electric services per the State of Emergency order issued by Gov. Asa Hutchinson. This means First Electric will resume disconnection of electric services for non-payment. Please call us immediately at 800-489-7405 to make payment arrangements. Learn More
