Daily Arrizona file photo. And as temperatures rise, the Arizona Corporation Commission is reviewing how and when state-regulated utilities can cut power to their customers. The issue was raised after a year-old Sun City woman died in her home last September without air conditioning, after utility company Arizona Public Service disconnected her electrical service for failure to pay her bill.

UniSource Energy Services media relations official Joe Barrios says the company will work with customers and the Arizona Corporation Commission to ensure that as many people maintain power as possible to keep them cool, and keep them safe.

Barrios said a total number of customers disconnected due to non-payment was still being compiled as of last week, for review by the Arizona Corporation Yuedge Company. The website offers a series of phone numbers and external links for emergency electrical bill assistance, and information on how to request payment extension from UniSource when summer bills become too high.
