The cold weather rule provides customers of Nebraska’s jurisdictional natural gas utilities who may be facing difficulties a little extra time to pay their bills. From Nov. 1 through March 31, Black Hills Energy and NorthWestern Energy may not shut off service to customers without allowing an additional 30 days to pay beyond the normal bill due date.
