Electricity could soon be cheaper in Greenville

Greenville – Electricity may be a little cheaper in Greenville beginning next month. Officials with GEUS announced Wednesday that the utility was reducing its Fuel Adjustment Charge, which GEUS uses to recoup the higher costs it pays for generating electricity. Lower natural gas prices over the past few months resulted in GEUS having a lower cost to produce or purchase power. The decrease announced Wednesday equates to monthly savings of $24.26 for the average 1,000 kWh residential user.
