I have a $150.00 electric bill and am unable to pay it all this month. Is it possible for me to pay $40.00 of it this month and keep my electric on?

It depends on your electric company. Some electric companies will accept partial payments to keep the power on but some want it all and will shut you off within one month of being overdue.

I'd call them up and tell them you're having trouble paying the full amount and you might be able to get setup on a payment plan.

Sending something is better than sending nothing though.
