The Greenville Electric Utility System intends to raise electric rates, in part to help pay for the local utility’s share of the Gibbons Creek power plant through the Texas Municipal Power Agency (TMPA).

“The TMPA plant has been an integral part of GEUS’ power supply mix for many years keeping our rates very competitive”, said GEUS General Manager Gary Singleton.

It would be the first such increase in electric rates in four years.
