  TXU Energy says it won't disconnect electric service for low-income customers or seniors if they fall behind on their bills this summer - but only if they agree to deferred payments.  The utility also said it would provide 25 million dollars to offer discounts for low-income customers. Jim Burke's chairman and chief executive of the Dallas-based utility. He says the aid could be in addition to a 20 percent discount authorized by the state Public Utility Commission.
  The moratorium on disconnections will begin July 1st and run through September.  Customers who are ill, disabled, get such aid as food stamps or Medicaid or are at least 62 years old can sign up for deferred payment. They must pay at least 25 percent of their monthly bill and pay the rest in equal amounts over the next five months.
  The requirement for partial payment of the current month's bill can be waived for customers who are both low-income and at least 62.
