No matter how far behind you are on your utility bill, the company won't turn off your power when the weather gets this hot.
MidAmerican says its policy is to continue to provide power to customers, when the heat indices approach 100 degrees.
"When we're seeing weeks with high temperatures and heat indices above 100 degrees, it's important that the customer call us and work out either a payment plan or allow us to talk to them, so that we can help them with their energy bill," said Tina Potthoff, spokesperson for MidAmerican Energy.
MidAmerican reports the number of cases of late payment are actually down from past years.
In addition to calls about payment plans, the company will help any customer develop an energy efficiency plan to save money in the future.
