GREER – Greer CPW Commissioners approved Monday new electric tariffs that would impact both residential and commercial electric customers. On average, the customer’s electric bill will go down by 2.5%.
“We have worked diligently to reduce our operational costs over the last few years. Those reductions plus a decrease in the cost to purchase power allowed us to pass the savings to the customer,” said Mike Richard, Greer CPW General Manager.
Greer CPW provides electric service to approximately 21,000 customers within the city of Greer and in certain unincorporated areas nearby.
“We believe this is a positive change for our customers and the decrease is a testament to CPW staff reducing expenses without impacting quality of service,” said Jeff Howell, Greer CPW Chairman.
The new electric rates will go into effect January 1, 2021.
