Don't most utilities offer some kind of (don't know what it's called) vacation thing like for snowbirds, where you can suspend service so there's no usage but they're not actually disconnected? Thought they did but I could be wrong.
I think they do, but that's only to save the monthly subscription fee, which would run higher than the disconnect/reconnect fee if calculated over 6 months.
For a month, it's not worth it.
