Electricity: Benefits of our Municipal Utility
Greenville's municipally-owned electric utility provides a number
of advantages for city residents including:
- Competitive rates - GEUS'
not-for-profit status offers very competitive electrical rates.
- Convenient locations
- Drive-up windows at two locations for your convenience
- Local control - Your utility dollars stay in
Greenville where they benefit local residents instead of out-of-state
stockholders. Your neighbors serve on our board to set GEUS
rates and policies.
- Reliability - The GEUS system
provides power to consumers more than 99.98% of the time. Our
experienced local crews respond to any outages immediately to
restore your power fast.
- Ease of billing -
Your GEUS electric bill is included with your
City of Greenville utility bill. You can pay online.
- Consumer savings - GEUS pays
the City of Greenville more than $2 million annually. Part of
this payment covers our cost for joint services shared by the
City and GEUS. Shared services (meter reading, billing, personnel,
insurance) results in lower electric rates and lower taxes.
- Economic development - GEUS
annually transfers $300,000 to the Greenville Board of Development
to attract new commercial and residential development.
